“We commissioned Kathryn Speak in October 2012 to design our website and to produce a logo which could be incorporated across all media.
We have been absolutely delighted in the high quality work Kathryn has designed including an excellent logo which is eye catching yet subtle. She designed all the stationary including display posters, letterheads, compliment slips, business cards, brochure and menu cards and developed these as a consistent package incorporating the logo.
She produced the design for our website and Facebook page and helped us to project a style we wanted to project. The feedback from tourist agencies and visitors is 100% positive – even to the extent that on the strength of the quality of the website alone we were advised to apply for a white rose award.
We have found Kathryn to be very easy to work with. She is approachable, and also professional and thorough in her work. She responded promptly to emails and telephone calls and we felt her communications with us were excellent. Our views were regularly sought and we found her easy to work with and responsive to our needs. She also has an enthusiasm for the work she does and is keen to produce top quality work with an eye for detail.
Kathryn produced an excellent portfolio of work for us which has helped us to project a very positive image of our B&B.
We have no hesitation in recommending Kathryn as an excellent designer who delivers top quality work and does it with enthusiasm.”

I found Kathryn on twitter and when I looked at her website I knew she’d be the right person we were looking for. Her personality shone through in her quirky illustrations and unique style, it was very clear that we would be working with Kathryn ‘the person’ as opposed to ‘Kathryn’s company’ which was perfect.
As a new business we were conscious that we did not want to use ‘library’ images to portray our ‘product’. We were looking for somebody who would understand our concept of using a traditional cartoon style character and his friends for our logo and branding, a strong image that made you smile yet was not brash.
She brought our characters to life. She then produced fantastic artwork in warm earthy colours for our flyer, business card, stickers, pop-up banner and spare wheel covers. She meticulously spent time designing and perfecting our website and social media and everything was ready on time.
What we now have is a fresh and unique design for our branding that’s versatile. The character ‘Bertie Big Boots’ evokes a sense of fun and it makes you look twice.
So many people have complimented our branding. Kathryn has been great to work with and she is hugely talented. I value her opinions and look forward to working with her on more design work we have planned for ‘Bertie’ and ‘Bring Yer Wellies’.

I wanted a brand/logo to use as part of my new venture and had no real idea on what I wanted at first. I knew I wanted something fun and colourful that summed me up! Kathryn made the whole process really easy and with a lot of communication and friendly advices, she created a fabulous and fun logo that was perfect for me! Thank you so much!
“Kath was recommended to us by a colleague for logo and website design. She is extremely professional and created a logo and brand based on our requirements but with plenty of options and different designs to choose from. Her ideas were very innovative and she was proactive in dealing with us. I would be more than happy to recommend Kath.”

“Kath re-designed my logo for my portrait and wedding photography business.
The logo is outstanding and I have had countless comments on how beautiful it is. Kath listened to my requirements and ideas and created a logo which has given my business an identity. She has managed to create something which allows my customers to see what I do and the style in which I work, while capturing my personality perfectly.
She was a pleasure to work with and I was so pleased with the logo I have commissioned her to help with the re-designing of my website and all my stationary and promotional material.
I have no hesitation in recommending Kath and Ink and Pixels Creative, exceptionally highly.”
“I’ve been looking for a really good graphic designer for some time now, with only limited success. As soon as I saw the work done by Kathryn, I knew I needed to look no further. She translated what was in my head into a superb eye-catching design for a book cover – at a very reasonable cost too. I would recommend her work to anyone.”

“We commissioned Kath to produce the artwork for our wedding invitations. We gave her minimal details about what we wanted in terms of colours, style and a bit of content and what she came back with was way beyond all expectations.
Kath was really easy to work with and made any amendments we had without quibble. She provided some great suggestions to improve our artwork and where else it could be used to make the stationery for our special day even more personalised (we had it adapted for a flag which Kath also produced).
We were so impressed by Kath’s creativity and professionalism that we appointed her to produce our ‘thank-you’ cards for all of our wedding guests.
One of Kath’s outstanding features is her illustration skills, which she put to fantastic use for us to create a truly personal set of wedding stationery.”
