Here are some examples of my work and what people say about the results. 

Keith asked me to design a logo for his band, Indigo Star, as they wanted to use it on a drum skin. After a few versions we got a design that everyone liked. 
 
Later, Keith asked me to design a gig poster for the band. They wanted a design they could use for each gig with just the venue, date and time details changing each time. 
 
A bit later, Keith came back again and asked if I could adapt the gig poster for a halloween special. This went down well and he came back again for a Christmas special version.

"Hi Martin. Just wanted to say thank you for the work you’ve done for us. There are two reasons why we like working with you. First, you actually listen to what we want, and come back with suggestions that not only meet the brief but add that bit more. And your service is first class, being prompt and helpful, and with very reasonable prices. We’re very happy to continue working with you."

Duncan posted on Facebook asking for advice on how to improve the poster he created for his karate club. I gave him some tips on what he could do and also sent him a poster I had done for the karate club I go to (Jindokai). Duncan asked if I could create him a poster “in the same vein of maturity.” He was happy with the four designs (two landscape and two portrait) as he could rotate them. 
 
Duncan later came back to me and asked me to create a roadside banner for him based on one of the landscape posters. I flipped the image so the belt pointed to the right as this was the direction of the club dojo’s entrance.

"Martin not only has an eye for detail, but the vision and perception to accurately, positively, and dramatically represent a client's desired image and message. 
 
My posters for my Karate club have provided a clean, professional image for the club and adds to the club's persona as a friendly and professional training group. I have full confidence in Martin's work and will always return to him for future artwork and advertising imagery".

"I was designing a new version of my Referral Briefing Brochure. Martin is a graphic designer and a client so I asked his opinion. What he did was come back to me with a draft improved version. It was more than an improvement it was a transformation from a homespun wordy document to a branded flyer that uses words, images and the clever use of two sides of A4 to put across my messages with impact. 
Two lessons for me - hire the professional to do a job properly - if the job is graphic design and it needs to impress then hire Martin. I did and I recommend you do too."
