From the very beginning, Chris was in tune with how we wanted to create our business image. We knew what we wanted but didn't have the expertise or knowledge for how to create it. Well, Chris did! He listened to our thoughts and brought our business to life. From designing our logo, packaging, and website, Chris has seamlessly brought them all together, with results that have blown us away. We have had many compliments at recent Fayres that our presentation stands out from the crowd. We know this is just the beginning for us working with Chris, he is a top man to work with; genuine, fun and extremely knowledgeable and helpful. His attention to detail is spot on. Thank you, Chris, it is a pleasure working with you.

I believed I had a reasonable profile for my business, but thought it would benefit from a few tweaks.  I approached Dartworks Design for some help and soon realized I was very wrong.  Working with Chris was a revelation and a delight. He was patient, inciteful, intuitive and great to work with.  The presentation of my small business has vastly improved.  I will definitely consult with Dartworks for any future projects.  Thank you Chris.

I approached Chris at Dartworks while pondering a loose idea for a small business. Chris was great. He 'got' the concept right from the off and walked me through, step by step, the whole web build process offering support and solutions as things evolved. I'm super happy with the results. Chris couldn't have been more flexible or more generous with his time. An all round good guy.

I commissioned Chris at Dartworks design to create a book cover portrait for the bicentenary edition of my bestselling biography Mother of the Brontës. He used the only two images that exist of Maria to imagine her at 38, the age she died. He worked closely with me throughout the project and his beautiful image surpassed anything I had hoped for. It is a profoundly moving image that showcases the depth of his illustration expertise and design insight that Chris brings to every project. Working with him is a delight.

The thing I love about Chris is his instinctive eye for the smallest detail. Having agonised for months over the layout of photographs for an exhibition he effortlessly reorganised them into the perfect configuration to show them in their best light. Then, when it came to producing a book of the exhibition, he came up with a beautiful layout and turned around print-ready artwork in double-quick time. Honestly, every creative needs a Chris.

Without doubt, the best thing you can do is to commission Chris to help you with all your design needs. I loved working with Chris and will only work with him from now on. Chris helped me to navigate through all my needs in a professional, creative and supportive manner. He found the right balance, from respecting my website, to offering advice based on his years of experience in design and marketing. Chris always does what he says he will do and in the agreed timescale, a rarity in my past experience. His skills as an Artistic Director transformed my website into something magical. I recommend him to everyone.

Chris at Dartworks design understood exactly what was needed for an artist’s website, and was able to give me guidance on that, which was really helpful. What he has created for me in re-designing my site is so beautiful and professional, so stylish and elegant - I’m actually in love with it! I found Chris to be fantastic to work with, communicative and clear about the process, and efficient at getting it done. Now I can feel extremely proud when directing people to my site, safe in the knowledge that not only will they see my paintings displayed to their best advantage, but also, and very importantly, that they will be able to easily navigate their way around the site to find what they are looking for. So, it’s just what I wanted. I wouldn’t hesitate to thoroughly recommend him.

Chris at Dartworks design took our cobbled together, rather a dismal website and transformed it into something contemporary, eye-catching and accessible. He understood our product, our target audience and importantly our budget and worked with us to produce exactly what we wanted. We couldn’t recommend Chris more highly and we will definitely require his expertise again as our business grows and develops.

I highly recommend Dartworks design to design your brand and build your website. I had a very tired and dated website and had been struggling with knowing what to do with it for a number of years. Chris was recommended to me by one of his clients and I am absolutely delighted with the work he has done. I am now proud of our website; it is fresh, exciting and a pleasure to look at. I will certainly go back to Chris with all of my design needs in the future.

It was brilliant working with Dartworks design because Chris ensured the process of designing my brochure was particularly straightforward. I had a challenging brief because I needed to promote Inspire South West with young people, families, commissioners and partner agencies. The layout and design needed to appeal to such a wide audience and Chris took the time to fully understand my remit and captured this perfectly.

When I first saw the cover of Playinground I was amazed. Chris had captured the very heart of the story. I will definitely commission him to design the cover of the book I am now writing, and those following.
