Helen and Cindy are responsible for a complete re-branding of our business and for the brilliant design of all our marketing materials, including our website.

They started completely from scratch and took the time and trouble to learn about our business. They even managed to bring out our latent marketing skills and they still continue to come up with innovative marketing ideas whenever we speak.

They remain an important part of our team and their designs continue to evoke positive reactions from all that see them.

Many thanks to you both.

Fly Design provided us with the design for our new exhibition graphics. The brief was to create a modern, visually appealing look that communicates Mecmesin's pedigree and expertise in force and torque measurement and high technology to our global audience. Fly provided an excellent service and the use of their graphic design at our exhibitions has generated a great deal of positive comment and more importantly a much higher degree of enquiries."

Many thanks for all your hard work last week, the brochure looks excellent- it made it to the big plastics show in Chicago on time and I've already had some very positive feedback from my American colleagues.

Fly were an integral part of the growth of the Sultan's Cuisine. Without them it was proving very difficult to be taken seriously by the major Supermarkets. After the re-design and subsequent strong new brand, we had them queuing up at the door! I will heartily recommend working with Cindy & Helen, they understand the market and know what to do to instinctively maximise the product's appeal.

I've been commissioning artwork and design for a good many years in different industries with different demands so you could say I'd seen it all before. But, when I came across your work, I was genuinely taken by its feel, its clarity and its freshness. So, when I launched my own business, it was to you I turned. Well, that was a decade or more ago and you've still managed never to disappoint. I love the way you always understand not only the critical messages and tones but manage to communicate them so clearly, fluently and effectively into your treatment. From a small and tentative beginning, the company is now nationwide, supplying many High Street names including Airmiles, Argos, Asda, Boots, Debenhams, John Lewis, Littlewoods, M&S, Morrisons, Sainsburys, Somerfield, Tesco, Virgin, W H Smith and is even now expanding abroad.

My business is an important part of my life. It's good to know that you're right at the heart of it.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Cindy at Fly Design is a creative genius. I came to her not knowing what sort of image I wanted for my new business, and she came up with many exceptionally good ideas. She even created my strap line.

Her experienced eye for the smallest detail, even including colour psychology has surpassed my expectations .She came to me very highly recommended, and I can see why.

When I hand out my business cards, nearly every person comments on how unique and unusual my logo is, and how effective my colour choice is. It has certainly increased my business potential, by raising people's interest in what I do!

I highly recommend her services.

"If you're looking for designers who will challenge the way you look at things, create fantastic designs which seem to personify your brand and who offer excellent value for money...talk to Fly Design! We've worked with them for four years and have never been disappointed."

Simon Clark, Director,
The Square Window Ltd.

"Cindy and Helen really want the best for you. They worked hard to get us a logo we wanted, with colours and a style that reflected what we do. A much more personal, creative, inclusive process than I've ever experienced before. Since then, we've gone back to them for more artwork as we felt they really know who our audience are and what works for them. A great service which I'd heartily recommend!"

The project she has undertaken for the Bell Group has paid for them self several times over and has often given us a heads up on our competitors.
