feedback testimonials

When our design work helps our clients’ businesses grow — that’s gold.

“I choose to work with Michael at Charcoal Design because of his creativity and the quality of his work. I am writing a testimonial because working with him far exceeded my expectations. I got so much more than quality work; Michael listened and understood what I was looking for, was easy to work with, and offered professional insight. From concept to completion, the final product is a ‘brand’ that is right on target. I highly recommend his work.”

And a follow up email recently…
“I wanted you to know how many positive comments I receive on the logo you designed. Not a week goes by without several compliments – and of course it is YOU who is truly being complimented.
Thought you should know and thank you again so much.”

“We have been working with the team at Charcoal Design over many years to develop our business identity. They have worked on all aspects of our branding including stationery, promotional material, signage and vehicle signage. More recently they have undertaken the design, development and implementation of our web site. Throughout this time we have found them to be a fantastic business partner. They have listened, advised and worked with us to implement the various projects. They have always exceeded our expectations. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Charcoal Design.”

“Our company distributes a range of stationery products including Moleskine, Peirre Cardin notebooks and Lamy Pens.
We wanted a website to reflect the quality and styling of this premium European brand. The site needed to be easy to navigate around with a minimum number of mouse clicks.
Charcoal Design certainly delivered all that we asked for. The site was up and running in a very timely manner, and was most cost effective. The site has a great design element to it, and has generated a lot of positive comment.
We have had many hits on the site, which tells us that our clients are using it as a reference tool on a regular basis. I highly recommend Michael and the team and will be using Charcoal Design for further projects in the future.”

“When working with Charcoal Design to create a logo for my new business I found them to be very flexible in their approach. They recognised my needs and limited resources as a brand new small business (sole trader) and were able to come up with a tailored costing package that suited me. Michael’s initial design concepts were creative and offered me several options to choose from. When I decided on the final logo concept Michael worked very closely and very quickly with me to modify and tweak it until we got it just right. I’d definitely recommend Charcoal Design to friends and family.”
