Thank you very much Mel. I came to you with very little idea of what I wanted or needed and your ideas and designs are excellent and competitively priced. I couldn't feel happier with the end products that I've had so far. The process was made stress free and you make it seem effortless! Have a wonderful Christmas and I'm looking forward to discussing the new website in 2016.

At Introtweet, we absolutely love working with The Design Hive. We completely trust Mel to come up with the perfect ideas to suit our brand & as a result have used The Design Hive to design us a new logo, both for our overarching businesses & our services within. The Design Hive have most recently used the new logo they designed to create & print new Business Cards for us, and as always, we loved the design from the first draft. Thanks so much, it's great to have found a local company we can trust & work so well with. Here's to much more design work in the future - we can't wait.

Eat Festivals re-brand: Mel worked quickly on a wide-ranging brief to produce two logos that nailed our expectations. We need an over-arching brand and a logo that could be adapted for each event. She incorporated our wish list, dream list and "shoot for the moon list." We have received consistently positive feedback on our new identity and wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to others.

Review of The Design Hive by Tom Travis

Melanie at The Design Hive completely redesigned the company website five years ago, and has been adding to it and updating it on a regular basis since. Her interpretation of our company and its ethos is completely projected through the different aspects of our website. All work carried out has been done to agreed timescales and budget. The Design Hive have also created and printed promotional materials in the way of brochures, leaflets, folders and signage. I would not hesitate to recommend The Design Hive to carry out any type of media or promotional work and can confirm that their ideas and designs are modern with a fresh approach.

Review of The Design Hive by Laura Fowler
5 Laura Fowler

We approached the Design Hive with a brief for a new project 'Under Construction' that required branding. From start to finish Mel ensured she fully understood the project aims and importantly our approach. The timescale was quick, we were provided with 3 deisgn options one of which was just right! Mel also organised signage as we liked her own office sign. We are very happy customers, nothing was too much, even help with understanding how to use the graphic files. Because of our initial experience we commissioned Mel to design our mission statement, the results were simple, very clever but very effective. No need to look elsewhere, The Design Hive provides the whole package! Thank you.

The Design Hive Q&A

The Design Hive Q&A

What makes a great website?

Websites that pay for themselves! A blend of clean coding, easy navigation, great call to actions and a professional design.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

1) What type of design work do you require?
2) Describe your brief
3) What is your deadline?
4) Do you have brand guidelines that need to be followed?
5) What is your target audience?
6) Do you have an idea a style you prefer?

Describe your creative process.

Our creative process consists of 5 key stages:
1. Listen to the client and understand the brief and clients needs and goals
2. Research the company, the industry and the competition
3. Sketching
4. Draw up design concept on screen
5. Proof to client

What information do you need from a client before you can start work?

1) Logo files
2) Any images
3) Brand guidelines (if the client has them)
4) Text/copy
5) Pantone or colour references
6) Fonts
7) Examples of existing artwork/marketing materials

What do you love most about your job?

Seeing the excitement on a clients face when you present them with their design. Everyday and every project is unique. You never know what you maybe working on next. I couldn't imagine doing any other job, although it never feels like work.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Opportunities, the passion I have for the design industry and drive.

Why should our clients choose you?

We prefer the personal touch and take time to listen to every client. We understand your needs and goals and get to know you and your business before we start the design process.
