I have used Stu as the designer on a number of my clients’ accounts. As a small marketing agency it is imperative that we provide great creative work for our clients, and I know that when I brief Stu, he will work tirelessly until the piece is right and the client is happy. His work is outstanding, and he has a talent for creative thinking that will take him far. He also always looks for the most cost effective solution to a creative problem, which is a great skill to offer for clients both large and small.
Stu is generally always my first choice to go to when I need graphic design or websites created. He is also the only designer I know who will train clients on using their WordPress websites: an offer not to be under-estimated!
I am looking forward to a great long term working partnership with Stu over many years. Thanks Stu for all your hard work!

Stu was able to capture exactly what we wanted from our project and even some things that we didn’t know we wanted – but did when he showed us! He listened, suggested and provided a quality project from start to finish. Audacious Creative gave us something different, something that reflects our ethos and aims and something we are very proud of – thank you!
Joel Marshall, Deputy Head, St. Mary’s School, Kidderminster & Head of St. Oswalds Primary, Kidderminster
Having worked with Stuart on a number of occasions, I can’t recommend him highly enough! He delivers creative solutions in super-fast time and I can always rely on him to do a fantastic job. Thanks for all your hard work.
Nathan Littleton, Future Visions
As a marketer, I’m very fussy about who gets to work on my own brand, but it was Stu that I chose to overhaul my own brand and website – no mean feat. Stu’s level of design thinking is superb, and works very hard to get the design right for his client. His passion is in branding and thus makes sure that the brand he creates for you works consistently across all your marketing collateral. My website redesign and restructure was a long process (my fault), but Stu remained cheerful throughout and worked with me till the end to ensure that it was perfect. And despite a few late nights, he maintained his sense of humour throughout! I would have no hesitation in recommending Stu for brand creation, printed marketing material or website creation.
Kim O’Rourke, Merrie Marketing
I used Stuart to design and print business cards for my business, Stu was on hand through every step of the process. He came over for a quick meeting and then quickly got the ball rolling. He was always on hand when I needed him and he also kept me up to speed with how things were doing. I was also able to tweak the design to suit me which was really helpful!! I would have no hesitation in recommending Stu to business associates, friends or family.

I approached Stuart to design some Utility Warehouse business cards for me that were slightly different. From initial contact right the way through the process Stuart as always kept me up to date and was very professional and came up with ideas to help get my message over.

The cards are superb and I can highly recommend Stuart’s services and will certainly recommend him to people as I travel around.

He is patient, helpful, enthusiastic, and very pleasant to work with. He is easy to contact and has met my timescales. I am very pleased with the work he has done for me and recommend him highly.
Carol Usher – Clearwordz
When I commissioned Stu to create the branding for my new company and develop the website, I was impressed with the genuine interest he showed in me and my business and was able to connect with the vision I had for Freedom Beauty.
Stu really helped bring my vision out – to take a concept I had in my head and turn a long-held dream into a reality. The resulting brand design, print work and website completely exceeded my expectations and I am really proud of the work he did.
I found Stu very easy to work with and appreciated his personal and professional approach. Stu was really approachable and made the design process straightforward. It wasn’t stressful and the whole process just flowed very naturally.
I am so delighted with the work that I have already recommended his design services to some friends and will continue to recommend Stuart from Audacious Creative unhesitatingly.
Alison Smith, Freedom Beauty
Working with Stuart at Audacious Creative is a great experience. He is always on the ball, efficiently responds to our enquiries and works diligently and quickly to create the bespoke logos and website designs our customers demand. His designs are eye catching and we love working with him!
Frances Berry, Director SEO it Right Ltd
We gave Stu of Audacious Creative a rather tough task in designing our wedding invitations; to create something fun and colourful but elegant at the same time. Stu took all our comments onboard and offered a completely bespoke service whilst offering his professional advice. The service was entirely about what we wanted and Stu took the time to ensure he created something personal to represent who we as a couple are. I admit this was no small design task and I thought it impossible to incorporate all that we asked; but Stu surpassed my expectations and created a perfect mixture of colour, elegance and who we are. Not only are we totally impressed with the outcome but all our guests have commented on how wonderful, unique and expressive our invitations are.

Quality is about content and delivery. With Stu you get great ideas that work because he’s listened to what you say and because he’s researched the marketplace for the brief. He’s very responsive to every request and has no precious angst so typical of other designers.
Richard Dickson. Development Director, Buckinghamshire Community Foundation
With an increasingly noisy environment coupled with the challenges of the economy, charities have to fight hard to get their message across and funds though the door. Stu has always found a refreshingly creative solution to design briefs, helping us to reinforce our distinctiveness at the same time as meeting our fundraising objectives. A pleasure to work with!
Nick Wilmot. Communications Manager, Cord
I have been delighted to work with Stu Avis in revitalising our brand. He quickly identified our needs and made sensitive suggestions regarding our logo and brand image which were readily accepted. He then created ’Brand Guidelines’ which has lead to the re-launch of a number of key promotional and fundraising items including our regular quarterly magazine. We were guided throughout this process by Stu’s personal input and understanding of creative design. I can highly recommend Stu as a hands-on creative designer with a real feel for the needs of the voluntary sector and an understanding of how to work effectively within the budgetary constraints of a smaller charity.
Graham Fairbairn. Chief Executive, Rope
Stuart Avis of Audacious Creative designed a new business card for my Architecture Company which I believe has been a very successful job. Stuart always acted in a very professional manner and was very patient during this process while I was continually chopping and changing my mind about various aspects to do with the design of the cards. I would have no hesitation in using Stuart’s services again in the future and would not hesitate to recommend his services to others.
Ian R. Sidlow. ISA, R.I.B.A.
I really appreciated that Stuart gave the same level of promptness, importance and energy to my small order for a wine bottle label as he does to larger, more dynamic orders. I will certainly use him again and recommend him to my friends.
Many thanks for the recent design project, you were as always patient, helpful and courteous. Together I feel we have come up with a really pleasing publication. I shall be back next time I need similar work.
Dig Pearson. Manager, Pearson’s Hardware Store, Hockly Heath
The simplest of ideas can often be the most complicated to actually implement – and on discovering this with a design project I had tried to do on my own, I decided to enlist the help of the professional. The results I got from Stu were far better than I could have anticipated, delivered in very good time and definitely worth the money spent to get a quality look to the project. As a complete layperson, I particularly appreciated the advice Stu gave me on getting the project printed to ensure that the quality of finish was maintained. I would definitely use his services again!
I have used Stuarts services on numerous occasions and he has always provided a professional service with outstanding results.
Neil Cartwright. Fizzy Fish Creative
Stuart has great rapport with people, his design services are excellent and his prices are very competitive.

Stuarts enthusiasm to help is wonderful and i will certainly be using him again in the future.

Best Choice Travel is an independent travel agency and, as a newly-formed company, was in need of a more professional image for its business cards. I spoke to Stuart about creating some eye-catching alternatives for me to choose from and, in no time at all, four ideas were sent for my approval. Once the design had been chosen, the cards were ready in a week at an affordable price. I would have no hesitation in using Stuart at Audacious Creative for any further design work needed to enhance my business or with recommending anyone for their own design needs. I would like to thank Stuart for his professionalism and enthusiasm to ensure the cards were designed to such a high standard in a short space of time.
Michael Allsopp. Best Choice Travel
At Clarkewood Consulting, our business model is geared to quality rather than quantity; we will listen to your needs, understand what you are looking for and deliver the right solution.
It is so refreshing to find another business that has those same beliefs and values. When I engaged Stuart recently, it was to create some bespoke Christening invites for my little daughter. Stuart was so thorough in qualifying what we wanted, taking a very detailed specification and was in constant touch updating, checking and advising on best design, layout etc and worked directly with my wife – who, believe me, is very demanding! Stuart came through with flying colours!
Stuart was not only knowledgeable about which design, layout, colours and typography would best suit our needs; he delivered exactly what we agreed upon and on time with no hassle and at a great price.
The experience of speaking with Stuart through to completion is by far and above any other company we have spoken with and I would not hesitate to recommend Stuart Avis at Audacious Creative to any other business or families.
Lee Clarke. Managing Director, Clarkewood Consulting
We do want to thank you for all the work you have done over the last year or so for Rope. You have helped us to revolutionise our public image and this will give us a very clear foundation for all the work we want to do to expand support for the organisation in the next year.
Your contribution has been very much appreciated. We thought you would want to know that the Lifeline leaflet worked well and the total income generated by it reached the second highest level for Christmas appeals since our records began. Given the current economic climate, we feel this is an exceptional result. We trust that all continues to go well and that we are able to maintain an ongoing relationship.
With enormous thank for all you have helped us to do, and very best wishes,
Graham Fairbairn. Chief Executive, Rope
Beth Jong. Administration and Supporter Relations Manager, Rope
