I have engaged Leigh and the team for a variety of marketing, design and communication projects over several years. Most recently the development of a new Website for our ROSS consumer electronics and Home Entertainment products brand. The Website was produced within several weeks to a tight deadline and has helped to grow the brand by 300% over 3 years in the UK. I find their strategic thinking and generation of creative, innovative solutions to be excellent.
The Boots Company PLC
We have worked with Creative First on a number of projects and have found them very professional. Projects have included – Design and production of an education pack for Boots Opticians, a large panel exhibition stand and CD-ROM / Marketing presentation for bootslearningstore.com. Creative First approach their work with care, paying close attention to detail. Early on they have provided honest advice and guidance. During production they kept us informed of progress and have ensured that deadlines have been met. We hope to work with them in future and would recommend them.

It was not only good to work with you again, but actually fun. The intelligence shown in understanding our brief, in what is a major part of our Organisational development, and delivering it in quick time in your usual efficient, simple un-fussy way has allowed us to implement the step change plan on time and within budget, with a little bit of style and grace.
Andrew Kitching — Managing Director and Principal Consultant — Direct Decision Consultancy Limited
The benefits we have experienced include an improved visual presentation of our printed material as well as new knowledge and ideas Creative First have been able to add. One of the most reassuring things is that I am 100% confident they will meet all of our deadlines! They have absolutely met every deadline comfortably and, when they say things will happen, then they do!

Just wanted to thank you very much for the work, advice and guidance you have given the charity over the last few months.

Nick Hassell — Marketing Manager — Fabdec
As a self employed artist, a website is essential. I use it to display images, sell paintings and drawings, provide exhibition information and as a permanent example of my current work. Creative First have constructed me a fantastic website that does all that. I constantly have comments from my my clients who admire the website and enjoy seeing their commissioned paintings in such a professional layout. Many thanks.
Michelle McCullagh — Artist
We have worked with Creative First for many years now and always been tremendously impressed with their efficiency, professionalism and in particular the speed with which modifications are made. We really appreciate their flexibility and couldn’t be more pleased with the results.

Deaconsfield Financial Planning
Leigh and his team always provide us with a professional, prompt and competitive service for all our printing, design work and promotional goods. This was proven last year when we re-branded our company logo. The whole process was thoroughly enjoyable. The problem only came when having to decide which design to go for! We would recommend him wholeheartedly.
Emma Bryan — Deaconsfield Financial Planning
In the transition to turning my company into a franchise opportunity, I was recommended to use Creative First and I was not disappointed. Leigh talked me through the process step by step and was instrumental in creating and developing the brand image. He produced a high quality prospectus and a very user friendly website of which I have had many compliments from other businesses as well as clients. I found Creative First an easy going, friendly company with never ending patience which is vital in their area of work. Thank you Leigh and all at Creative First.

PETA – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
I have been consistently satisfied with Creative First’s work. In fact, more than satisfied. The artwork provided has always been of the highest standard, professionally done and with a natural creativity. The work arrives when they say it will, in the condition I expect it, no matter what tight schedules I have, at times, imposed upon them. We produce materials for schools, both in the UK and Australia. In both countries, teachers have been delighted with the packs, and at education shows teachers literally fall over each other trying to get hold of the packs. I certainly recommend their work, which quite honestly recommends itself.
Kate Fowler — Charity Coordinator — PETA
I should like to thank you and your team for all your excellent work. The logo designs were all outstanding and to see our chosen logo and style developed into a complete company image throughout our corporate literature and stationery was very impressive. Your subsequent help with our recent stand at the Farnborough International Airshow was also faultless, the design and manufacture of the graphic panels, presentation and news mailer were all received well by our customers and I am sure the professional image you helped us to achieve helped our company’s success at the show.
Duncan Blakemore — Rojac
The design is only the beginning. Making it work hard for you and seeing some genuine results is equally important. Design works!
