Founder & CEO - I4YPC 'Innit 4 Young People'
Outstanding designs, eye popping, and our production programme is just delightful. Your attention to detail and the service you provide is way beyond what anyone could ever expect. From our initial meeting, right through to the completion of the final delivery (including liaison with the printers on our behalf), I’ve been delighted. Your commitment to the project, to the ethos of our organisation, to capturing the essence of who we are, what we do and what we are trying to achieve was paramount to the success of this campaign. Every revision was delivered on time and on form, and great care was taken to make sure that variants of the designs were exactly to the specification of our printers and PR/marketing partners including The Lowry, 75Media, Carousel (Manchester) and Media City. I’m very grateful for all the care you put into this campaign, which was a resounding success. I can’t recommend you highly enough for your services, and our organisation will certainly be engaging your services again in future campaigns and other general design work.
Director & Founder - IntraQuest
Grahame joined our IntraQuest family just before the pandemic. This is particularly significant, as many of our services and products were delivered face-to-face, causing us some initial stress! Grahame helped us to navigate this time through producing some amazing digital resources, that not only looked incredibly professional - capturing our brand and personalities - but continued to support the children, families and professionals we work with. During his time with us, he created newsletters, service brochures, infographics, social media content, video footage/editing, and even created a ‘life story’ book for one of our young people. His skill set is vast, however, what’s truly lovely about Grahame is his ability to listen, to capture the brief and his dedication to helping people through his gift. We consider Grahame part of our IntraQuest family and continue to work alongside him for all our design needs. Huge thanks Grahame!
NHS England (former Director at LGBT Foundation)
I had the pleasure of working with Grahame for several years when he led the design team at LGBT Foundation (formerly the LGF). During these years he worked on a wide range of media, including magazines, newsletters, website content, flyers, t-shirts, videos, icons, campaign materials and more, often to tight and multiple deadlines. Grahame has a strong, vibrant, visual style; and understands how design should amplify a message, not drown it - and he knows how to target design for particular audiences, including considerations such as inclusive imagery. I think it's fair to say that I could often be a designer's worst nightmare with strong concepts in mind and exacting standards. Grahame would always work with me to achieve the end result, and would take pride in his work. Equally however, Grahame can work with clients who don’t have any design concepts in mind, and will help to bring their content to life. Today, the LGBT Foundation is a highly respected organisation within the UK (and beyond), and I do not underestimate the role that design has helped play in creating a professional, lively, and community-orientated image. I have no hesitation in recommending Grahame’s design work to others.
Former Director of Communications, akt
I’ve worked with Grahame at akt for almost two years and his design-work and commitment to elevating a brand is top notch. He has helped develop and grow akt’s own brand, which has had a recent refresh, and we are regularly praised for his excellent work. I would absolutely recommend him as someone who designs and produces great work
Former Senior Marketing Officer, Contact Manchester
Working with Grahame has been a great experience. He's creative, talented and reliable, and also really easy to work with.
Professional, unique, and a joy to bounce off. Quite possibly the least painful design experience I've ever had. Having sent a detailed brief, Grahame produced a series of images that blew my mind. He gave our event a themed look so all our advertising was consistent and identifiable. Can't wait to work with him again.
