I can highly recommend Limelite Creative and will definitely work with Alison again in the future.

Alison designed a logo for our business to help us illustrate a particular concept. It was bright, lively and we continue to use it in our marketing. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Alison is a pleasure to work with and extremely professional. The briefing process ensured my requirements and preferences were clear, and she provided an abundance of super-creative options for my logo and business cards. The result was just what I hoped for. She created something I would never have been able to produce myself and allowed me to spend my time sticking to what I do best: translating. Great communication and support, I would recommend her services to anyone!

I highly recommend Alison at Limelite Creative. I recently launched a new brand and the whole experience has been fantastic from beginning to end. Alison took time to understand me and my business in depth, and has captured my personality and values beautifully (have a look at Anna Bell Coaching FB page). The engagement with my new brand has been excellent from old and new contacts. If you are thinking about investing in your brand, speak to Alison first!

Alison created a number of large graphics for my Property business, for use on social media and also for templates to use. I asked Alison to create some items with little information and the quality of the designs and graphics I received were exceptional. Great communication and time scales, I high recommend Alison and Limelite Creative for any works.

We were absolutely delighted and excited to launch the new Ashlee’s Neuroblastoma Appeal logo created by the lovely Alison at Limelite Creative. Alison knew exactly what we were trying to achieve and brought our logo to life, we feel this portrays Ashlee’s courage and her fight with cancer…(as well as her love for animals). She was a pleasure to work with, had excellent ideas and achieved something perfect to us. Thank you so much Alison.

I recently had Limelite Creative Create my new branding for my business Soulfully Aligned, including my stunning logo, business cards and leaflets. I am extremely happy with the results, Alison has a skill for being able to take on board all the vague ideas I give her and turn them into exactly what I want. My logo and branding are absolutely beautiful and people comment on how lovely they are often! Alison keeps in touch constantly to ensure everything is under control and you are happy with the product. I personally will continue to return to Alison should I need any graphic design work done. Thank you so much Alison! I highly recommend Limelite Creative. 5 stars!

Have been working with Alison for a couple of months now. Alison was responsible for our new menu design. She has given it a real contemporary, edgy feel completely in harmony with our new branding. I have found her, both professional and very easy to work with. Alison has advised and guided the design process but also been very attentive to my thoughts and ideas. Since our menu was completed, Alison has worked on other projects for me on an ongoing basis. I feel her pricing represents value for money and I have had no reason to look elsewhere. I am sure we will do business for many years to come!

I am a running fitness coach and was looking for a logo for my business to make it clear what I do. I don’t have a creative bone in my body, but even I didn’t like the logos that are free and that you can develop yourself online. I wanted something that was bespoke and stuck out, so I contacted Alison. On meeting with Alison, she noted everything that my business did and returned with a few initial ideas. It was obvious that she had put a great deal of thought into them. Alison then showed patience and talent in continuously tweaking and amending the idea until she got the final logo design. I absolutely love the logo and it ticked all the boxes for what I wanted. Alison is a very creative and talented lady and is obviously someone who is at the top of her game. Alison is also a very easy going and personable person. I immediately struck up a good rapport with Alison from the outset and immediately felt confident in her abilities. I would definitely recommend Alison to anyone.

I have been using Alison’s services for over two years now. During this time, she has completed the artwork for flyers and various trade publications that we advertise in. Alison has also done digital imaging for our website and for adverts we have used to advertise online. Alison is very professional in her approach and always gets the work completed on time. Alison definitely has an eye for detail, has a very quirky side to her and may surprise you on her selection of images. Alison never forgets you are the client and will always do what you ask of her. As a person; Alison is cheery, friendly and outgoing. I would definitely recommend Alison.

I contacted Alison about two years ago, as I was looking for graphics to tie in with my colours and give my business a more professional look. I found Alison to be good and went ahead with what she suggested. Since that initial meeting, I have used Alison’s services for various items; from leaflets to web and social media graphics, online ad campaigns, mascot illustration and point of sale. Alison is versatile and gives you varied ideas. She will sit down and work with you for as long as it takes until you get what you like. Alison is also very creative, which is the main reason we went with her. Alison is a lovely person and we get on well. Alison always meets deadlines and we have had no issues with her at all. I would and already have recommended Alison.

One of the most important aspects of starting a business is the creating the image which you want to resonate with your clients and customers. For us at Businessmentals, that means transcending borders, age groups, languages and so on as a global e-commerce business. Alison’s quirky Scottish humour blended perfectly with ours and she has created the best theme we could have hoped for. Her colour palette, logo design and fabulous icon appear in EVERYTHING we produce. And because it’s upbeat and uplifting, it’s a joy to use. Would that every Solopreneur was as responsive, imaginative and pleasant to work with! And NO! You cannot give her lots much work! Otherwise she won’t be able to get ours done…..
