cladfix logo


Cladfix are a Northwest cladding company offering a specialist fix only service for Blue Chip building contracts.

They were looking for a logo design that wasn’t over complicated and could incorporate some images of corrugated sheeting and fixing screws.

I designed a set of 4 logo proofs taking on board the customers’ requests, therefore most of the proofs contained the images requested. 

After receiving their first set of logo proofs, our client decided they liked a combination of 2 designs. This included the cladding as shown in the final design and fixing screws, which were later excluded from the final design.

I continued working on the design until the client was happy and after some minor tweaking they were completely satisfied with their final logo choice.

Once I had their logo design finalised, I went on to design their stationery package incorporating their new logo.

Written Proof

Why anyone would want to go anywhere else for a logo is a mystery to me. If you are a start up company, don’t waste your time looking anywhere else, shopping for a logo and stationery design has never been easier and such good value!

My company Written Proof is based in Christchurch in Dorset and provides Proofreading, Editing and Writing Services to businesses and individuals. I came upon Gerald’s site through recommendation from someone who had previously worked with Gez on their own logo. A quick glance through their website portfolio convinced me that this was a company that I wanted to do business with and their prices looked like great value as well.

From the very start, as I filled in the requirements form, I was able to picture in my mind the kind of logo that I wanted, but couldn’t formulate a particular design. Gez was able to translate my thoughts into a design that featured exactly what I was looking for – something that encompassed all of the aspects of my business without having to put an explanation in words, alongside the logo.

When the first drafts came through after a couple of days, I immediately chose the distinctive owl design. I also wanted something that included a sense of humour and Gerald captured this perfectly. I suggested a couple of small changes and the design was complete. It really was that simple.

I was so impressed with the quality of service that I immediately signed up for the next step – stationery design. I didn’t expect to get a new ‘corporate’ image but was so taken by the stationery design that I intend to use it as a base for a distinctive ‘revamped’ website, so I am absolutely thrilled with the service that Gerald provided.

We’d tried without success to save money and design our own logo, but even using clipart, we never managed to get the right combination of graphic, colour and text. Also the time wasted trying to produce a design wasn’t making the best use of our resources, so we decided that we needed some professional help.

Looking through the internet, there were literally hundreds of logo design companies, but we settled on the one whose portfolio we most liked and we felt offered the best value.

The design brief was relatively simple. As a start up company, we wanted a strong image with impact to grab our prospective customers’ attention, and it was crucial to the success of our business to present an established image and feel. However, it was also important to portray a ‘natural’ identity which necessitated a softer tone to the logo. Also the design had to be unique.

Gez at managed to capture this at the first attempt and there were literally only changes to the fonts and their colour to complete the design. The requests for changes were received with good humour and the communication was excellent. The whole process was completed in less than a week from enquiry to receipt of the finished designs by e-mail and completely painless.

We are absolutely delighted with the logo design and it will form the basis of our new ‘company image’, to be carried through our catalogue, website, stationery and clothing.

I would heartily recommend Gerald to anyone who needs an efficient and excellent value professional logo design service.

Plaintalk consulting logo


Plaintalk Consulting selected Business Logo Design package. (Logo & Stationery design). I offered them 4 different proofs to choose from. Once they received the initial proofs from me, they immediately decided that they liked one of the designs and with just a small colour change they were happy to finalise their logo design choice.

I made the colour change and I also decided, without any prompting, that I could improve on their chosen design by making a slight alteration.  They were delighted with the new version and then made this their final choice.

As Plaintalk were so delighted with the service I provided, they kindly recommended me to their contacts. Within a few days I received 3 new logo design orders, as a direct result from their recommendation.

Gerald surpassed my expectations in every regard; I had the first three quality proofs within 2 days of submitting my online order and was very impressed at how well he met my brief first time round. I chose one of the three and suggested some options and enhancements… and within 24 hours had another set of three variants (exactly in line with my requests/comments), one of which I chose as my final logo. The final set of logo files was emailed within a few hours of my email and included several sizes of gif as well as a number of other file formats. 

I found Gerald simply from a Google search and decided to take a chance on him; I am truly amazed at the level of friendly service I received for such a modest cost and I would recommend Gez to anyone, without reservation. He does exactly what it says on the tin.
