I had been planning to refresh my brand for a while but struggled to find a designer among recommendations who really shared my vision. Andy, however, was outstanding. He got it straight away. He knew what I wanted, even when I couldn't articulate it. He is so talented, his patience is infinite and his manner very easy-going, (which was essential during my project and the extremely tight timescales!) His work has completely turned my business around. The branding has been complimented by some very big names in the food and drink industry and has helped me to gain some amazing recognition. We are continuing to work together as my business is growing and hope to do so for many years to come. I recommend his services at every opportunity.

I spoke to several branding and graphic designers before deciding to work with Andy to bring to life my new branding for my kids' language programme.
Choosing people to work with as a small business can be nerve-wracking as (from experience) taking a punt on the wrong person can be an expensive mistake but from our initial chats I was pretty confident Andy would be the right man for the job and that turned out to be the case!
After an in-depth chat he was able to provide a detailed set of brand guidelines including suite of logos, well-thought-out brand colours, key fonts and social media templates creating an entire brand look and ethos. I felt comfortable asking for revisions until we got it spot on.
I still use Andy for design work and can thoroughly recommend his work.

Andrew has produced several pieces of work for MAKE Summer School, including an excellent logo that people are now associating with our service. He is extremely talented in his field and offers a unique and personal service that always exceeds expectations.

We approached Andy to assist us with our marketing when we started our new business venture - a laundry service in Mallorca. From the marketing approach and branding strategy through to graphic design of logos, the website and other marketing material, Andy delivered a comprehensive service of an extremely high quality. He also liaised with our service providers to ensure the correct logo designs were provided in the correct formats.
Throughout the project, his work was of a high standard, he added tremendous value through creative suggestions for improvements and he always provided us with various options to consider. His approach enabled us to start our business with with a robust, coherent branding strategy and many of our business associates and even competitors commented on the freshness, clarity and high quality of our branding material.
I would happily recommend him for any of the above marketing/branding activities - it was an absolute delight working with him and we would not hesitate to use him again in future for any subsequent requirements.

As a new start-up craft beer brand, creating an arresting logo would be crucial to our success. Working with Mr Smith Creative proved to be an excellent choice. Thorough, thoughtful and highly collaborative, Andy crafted a distinct, stylish logo that perfectly captured our brand's DNA.

I’ve enjoyed working with Andy on a number of brand creation and development projects for both commercial and third sector organisations. Andy is an exceedingly talented designer. At scoping and initial concept stage he successfully grasped the essence of each entity, uniquely expressing it in the concepts he has created. He has then gone on to develop simple and clear brand guidelines. Andy is a great chap and I’m more than happy to endorse him and his work to others.
