    – What our clients say –

    I worked with Regine on my website and branding for my coaching and consulting business, and was blown away by her vision and attention to detail. I gave her a vague brief and mood board of ideas, and she was able to take that and develop it in to something that is both original and striking. So many people comment upon and remember my pen and crown ink blot logo and I love it.

    Regine is so easy to work with. She is conscientious, creative, constantly thinking outside the box for ways to make your design, branding and websites working better for you, and very graceful, even when I’ve had last minute changes. She’s an absolute pleasure to work with.

    You’ve smashed it! I knew you would!

    Looks great, layout is simple, images are right, tone is correct. Excellent work as always!

    Amos Mallard, Communications Manager
    The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

    I have used Regine on multiple occasions now and her work is always excellent.

    Her ability to interpret the requirements I have presented in words, into an eye catching image that communicates our brand and message is amazing, especially considering I am not entirely sure what I actually want myself half the time!

    I think ultimately that is why Regine is always my first go to – put simply she intuitively understands what I want to achieve and knows the most impactful way to communicate my message graphically.
