    Kind words from you about us

    – What our clients say –
    • ROHWebsite logo

      The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital

      You’ve smashed it! I knew you would!

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

      (…) Thanks for all your support this year. It’s been a weird one, but we’ve accomplished a lot and you’ve enabled us to do that.

    • Cate Butler Ross branding

      Cate Butler Ross

      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.

    • JBC Skills Logo design

      JBC Skill Training

      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.

      –– Trevor Hopkins, Director of Training at JBC Skills Training Ltd
    • Website design for the Woodlands Suite

      The Woodlands Suite

      Working with Regine at Essence Design to develop a new website for The Woodlands Suite – Private Care at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital has been a pleasure. From providing a proposal that addressed our brief, to suggesting creative ideas for our website design and photography, Regine really put her all into the project. She demonstrated a high level of expertise, attention to detail and customer service throughout. The final result is a modern, attractive website which not only meets, but exceeds our original brief.
