Andy Dyson, Sapentia
We engaged the Design Pit to develop the initial branding and logo for a new business venture. The development was at a very early stage and the brief for Gareth and his team was limited to a name, a couple of preferred colours and an understanding of what the new business venture was. We found working with Gareth to be a stimulating and enjoyable experience with plenty of communications and two way feedback to ensure that we were happy with progress at each stage. Design Pit listened to our feedback and incorporated the comments in to each new version but crucially adding that ‘Flair’ that lifted the graphics above what we would have been able to produce. The graphic assets were delivered on time and in a wide range of formats to allow us to use in a wide range of media. We are looking forward to expanding our work with Design Pit in to the development of the design and other products and branding as the venture develops. We do not hesitate in recommending Gareth and the Design Pit team to anyone looking for a professional and communicative partner to help develop their business.
Sally Hodgson, Ipsen
Design Pit have worked on a number of projects for me at Ipsen. All have been delivered to a very high level and on time (even when I’ve been quite demanding and last minute!). No job is too big or small which is great as we go to Design Pit for a real mix of projects.
Jonathan Pritchard, Anglesey Group
I’ve worked with Design Pit on a few different tasks over the last couple of years from the exciting to mundane yet they treat all the jobs given to them with the same enthusiasm. Design Pit are always a pleasure to work with!
Jason W, Kenect Recruitment
I approached Design Pit after I received overwhelming recommendations from other business owners. Design Pit helped me produce all of my company’s marketing material and were very proactive in doing so. The very first design was fantastic and exactly what we wanted.
One thing I liked was their attention to detail and communication. Creative Director Gareth is someone that would get on with anyone. He cares about the end product and continues to help after sales. I continue to use this company to date and have no reason to look anywhere else. I would recommend Design Pit over any other I have used in the past. The only word to describe them is: Flawless!
Karen Kirby, Greenshoot HR
I’d like to give a big thanks to Design Pit for taking the time and interest to find out what I wanted for my leaflet. We both wanted something that would ‘hang around’ people’s desk and after quizzing me on what I liked and what I wanted to achieve, they came up with an unusual design which I am extremely pleased with and on a quality of paper not normal for leaflets. Once proofs and materials were approved, the final product arrived very quickly and is definitely making me stand out from the crowd. I would not hesitate to recommend Design Pit for all your design needs.
Paul Knight, Extracare Activity & Events Manager
I have found working with Design Pit a real pleasure. The service is always quick, fast reliable and the quality of work produced is exceptional. I have had monthly activity planners, posters, brochures, business cards and Christmas cards from Design Pit and always at a very competitive price. They are very understanding towards your needs and requirements and will always give their honest opinion on the best option to you for the best outcome. I would recommend Design Pit to anyone, and we would always be using them. Fantastic!
Richard Holland, The Telecoms Audit Bureau
Design Pit have assisted us with branding and print work over the past few years including corporate stationery items such as letterheads and business cards. They’ve helped with a redraw of our logo so that it was available to use in a scalable format so we could action printing jobs and be sure that our brand mark was reproduced in the best possible light. I would recommend Design Pit as a friendly, thoroughly professional and enthusiastic company with real expertise in all areas of branding, creative design and print.
David Harper, Dynamite Doodles
Design Pit designed and produced the roller banner for my business, it was fabulous and the design was effective and was exactly to my spec and was delivered at a fast turnaround. Would highly recommend Design Pit as your one stop design and print company, I will be using them in the future for my business.
David Fowler, Metalock International
Design Pit was recommended to me by a mutual colleague who knew I was looking for a new company to update an International Publication. Gareth (Creative Director of Design Pit) was invited to my office and we discussed the Publication and it was soon obvious that his new ideas and creative skills were just what we needed. We have now been working together since 2012 and found Gareth to be honest, reliable, very hard working and a good listener. Gareth is the Creative Director of Design Pit and his expertise shows in his work. I would certainly recommend Gareth Robertson and Design Pit for your Graphic Design, Branding and Printing.
Rebecca Kirkland, Abbots Bromley School
Working with Design Pit is as easy as falling off a log! We quickly formed a sound working relationship. They understand limitations and follows a remit extremely well. They are aware of the abilities of others and is supportive in their advice. Overall Design Pit has the skills, technique and experience for quality design and print.
David Kemp, Expo Floors
“Design Pit are the exception not the norm. Most creative bods struggle with organisation and professionalism…not Design Pit! They have the rare ability to absorb themselves in your business so they not only understand what you are trying to achieve, but is then often able to make informed and educated suggestions on how to steer the whole marketing approach, not just the creative element! They are not a “yes men” either, the customer is not always right and Design Pit has both the tenacity and integrity to give the right advice and is not afraid to tell you if something won’t work! Design Pit has carried out all manner of work for me from business cards and fliers to vehicle graphics, banners and is currently designing our brand new website! Their knowledge and understanding of social media strategies is also outstanding. I cannot speak more highly of Design Pit, they are exceptional designers with an eye for the bigger business picture, it’s like having your own marketing department at a fraction of the cost!”
Rod Murtagh, Murtagh Seafoods
Design Pit rebranded our Mrs Luty’s range designing us a new logo .This has enabled utilise our new brand on a range of products. We passed on a very short brief and Design Pit did the rest!
Jamie R – Staffordshire University Students Union President 2008 – 14
Design Pit is a small business that can think like a big one, without losing their customer focus. I’ve worked with them for both a University-wide logo and ‘identity’ design and immediate impact design work for the use of a small-scale theatre company and on each occasion have been very impressed with what they did and how they did it!
