I am always flattered and humbled by the feedback I receive, regarding my creative work and the quality of the service I provide. These are just some of the positive responses from the lovely people I've had the good fortune to work with.

Jo Cole, Head of Operations,
TVDNY Neurological Alliance

Nick is a delight to work with.  A truly reliable professional who is thoroughly focussed on delivering a high quality standard in a timely manner. His excellent listening skills translated what we needed for new branding which has subsequently drawn compliments from other organisations in our field. I always look forward to working with him. 

Coral Milner, Communications Manager, Queensway Dental Clinic

Over the past two years, Nick has become almost like an extension of our team. I am always impressed with his design services and even more so when he can fit things in for us at the very last minute! Always polite and helpful, I enjoy working with him and seeing the creative ideas that he comes up with. From everyday stationery and patient forms to treatment leaflets and advertisements; Nick completely understands our business and I can rely on him to provide us with a high quality service, no matter what the brief is.

Tony Osborne, CEO, SureTrax

It is an absolute pleasure to work with a true professional. Nick has done an amazing job on helping SureTrax to launch their products and services. We are all extremely proud of the materials and website he has produced. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Nick.

Laura Cowie, Your Main Event

Nick is extremely professional and delivers the very best quality of work at all times. He has helped bring the identity of our events to life, giving their success the very best possible start. I would highly recommend his creative services.

Dawn McNamara, Owner, DMC Photography

Having worked with Nick many years ago I was fully aware of his unique creative talent and was thrilled when he told me he was setting up his own business. When I needed a new website there was no hesitation in calling Nick. As always, he made a superb job and met my brief exactly.

Amanda Vince, Manager,
Teesside & Stockton Parent Support

Many thanks to Nick Ball who is the man behind the creation of our wonderful website. Nick used the ideas that our young people gave us and developed a site that truly represented what our organisation was about. A wonderful, professional person to work with.

Michelle Clapham, Sales & Client Support Manager, Engineering Services, MTD Group

Nick has taken a very disjointed corporate brand style for The South West School of NDT and moved it forward in a cohesive way with great sensitivity to ensure that the new designs work with everything already in use. His attention to detail is impeccable and he's always there when we need him, and no matter how tight the deadline, he's met it. Most importantly he provides ideas and directions that on our own we would never have imagined, and we will certainly be working with him on a number of projects going forward.

Gary Lyons, Managing Director, Plastic Box Shop

Having known Nick since we were school kids, his artistic talents were something I’ve been well aware of for sometime. What’s been great for us is that while our business has developed into a major online retailer, Nick's knowledge and creative talents have kept up. He has always met our ongoing need for more sophisticated and visually engaging marketing materials. It has become quite clear that the more we invest in our design and marketing and draw upon Nick's skills the more our business grows.

Simon Healey, CEO, Shape Training

Our website  was looking old and required a refresh. Nick was recommended by a friend and I am so pleased we went with him. We were able to fully utilise Nick’s creative skills and expertise to good effect. We now have a bright, vibrant new modern fresh look with our website transformed and our image more positively promoted. As a consequence I have no hesitation in recommending Nick to others.

Peter Koeppl, Owner, Genki Video Games

With no real guidance from ourselves Nick gained a stunning insight into our business and designed adverts and banners that seem wasted not printed on T shirts or album covers and on wider display. Thoroughly overjoyed with the results it gives me great pleasure to see them at the top of the site.

Ian Waddelow, Business Change Catalyst

Nick describes himself as a graphic designer and illustrator. This is true. He can draw and his work is beautiful. But this description can be misleading for what makes Nick truly  unique - and lifts him head and shoulders above his peers – is his ability to read between the lines and get to the very essence of your project.  Before sketching anything, he asks searching questions and digs ever deeper, peeling off the layers until he arrives at the very heart of the matter, identifying exactly what you need rather than simply dishing up what you say you wanted. This makes him an alchemist. He can take your leaden brief and turn it into gold – in such a humble and efficient way that working with him is an effortless delight. A guy who can produce something fresh and new yet totally commercial?  That, my friends, is very rare and seriously creative.  I urge you to use him now – before your competitors do.

Colin Scarsi, Managing Director,
Greencare Mobility

A refreshing and total understanding of the brief, translated into an exact interpretation of what was needed. As close to perfection as could be achieved and without any of the usual fuss about client alterations. Great job, thanks Nick. By the way, I mean it. I hope your business goes from strength to strength.
