Client Testimonials

Emma has been absolutely brilliant, from the very first meeting she has gone above and beyond. Every stage has been clearly explained and completed before deadlines, she has been a pleasure to work with. I have no hesitation in using Emma again or recommending her to others.


Caroline Beacon 
Owner, Stitched By You 

Emma developed our logo, marketing leaflet and then our website. I am really thrilled with all three. Emma listens carefully to what you are wanting to achieve and asks some probing questions to properly understand the business vision. She then interprets this to design and deliver the outputs with wonderful effect. Emma is easy to get on with, provides good advice and is very conscientious (and patient!). I certainly would recommend Curly Creative.


Andrew Martin 
Owner, Candy Tours 

The quality of Emma's work is very high. Emma is an excellent communicator, with great attention to detail... She really took time to listen and understand my business, before creating a completely new brand identity for me and then a website This is a start up business and working with Emma challenged me to be clear on my objectives and values, which has in turn led to a brand and website that I am delighted with and very proud of... I can't imagine anyone else would do such a good job!
