What our clients say about us
“Our group has been in existence for sixty years and it needed a facelift, a new name, a new logo and a new banner design. Many of the older members did not see the need for change. Dotty Hippo Design understood their design brief and dealt with it sensitively. We caused a few problems in the process but Louise showed great patience. The finished product was met with unanimous enthusiasm.”
Vic Gray, Chairman – Arts Thurrock (formerly Thurrock Arts Council)
“I would not hesitate to recommend Louise to anyone looking for a logo or leaflet design. She was incredibly patient with me whilst we made changes and I was being very indecisive! The ideas she produced were creative and unique, and the final product was incredibly professional and even better than I had imagined. ”
Lara Baker – Maple Osteopathy Clinic
“After being recommended to another designer for a logo for my new business, I spent weeks back and forth changing/redesigning my logo and I still wasn’t happy. They just didn’t get my business need.
Having seen Louise’s work for a number of years I then contacted her for a consultation. I wish I had contacted her in the first place. From start to finish Louise and her team were professional and prompt. I gave her a fairly vague design idea, just knew that I wanted a specific colour and said ‘when I see it, I’ll know’ Louise came back to me with the logo design within a couple of days, and it was spot on, no tweaks needed. I absolutely love seeing my logo. I really cannot recommend Louise enough.
Thanks again for all your hard work”
Daniel May – Hitch & Tow Ltd

Samantha Lynch – Hattens Solicitors
“I would like to express our appreciation of the services that dotty hippo design recently provided to our company. In the past, we have sent Christmas cards to customers and suppliers but not as many as we would have liked. So we attempted to design our version of an email card but it failed to give the right impression.
This year, I asked Louise to design our card. In no time at all, we received the proof which presented a great theme for our business message and a professional design to boot. We emailed out hundreds of cards and in return received many thank you comments.
I recommend dotty hippo design to any company looking for professional design services at a price that is affordable.”
Martin Hodson – Peak Security Systems Limited
