I have sent Rita a variety of design jobs over a number of months and she has been wonderful. Rita consistently goes above and beyond what is expected, she is creative, pays attention to detail and is great at managing pressing deadlines. Lovely attentive manner, highly recommend. More...

Thank you so much Ashleigh for finding the time to review my design work, as I know your job as Marketing Manager is extremely demanding. It is a pleasure to work as part of your team when needed. The variety of project briefs are always clear and concise. Most importantly if I need clarification on anything you or Lucy are on hand to answer any questions which makes my job so much easier. Many thanks. Rita

William Defoe Designs worked on two NHS reports for me this year. The first was from concept with basic guidelines to follow. As well as needing a printed version, we also required an online version which needed to be interactive. Rita did such a great job on this report she was commissioned to producing the next report which turned out to be 174 pages. This second report was very testing as so many people within the Trust needed to add their input so many author's corrections were done but Rita took on this challenge with speed, clarity, professionalism and throughout was so cheerful it made working with her an absolute dream. I would have no hesitation is recommending William Defoe Designs and I will certainly be using this agency again next year for our reports. More...

Rita @ William Defoe is an outstanding graphic designer, from the moment I was in touch through to the final document being approved Rita was professional, friendly, consistent, extremely organised and most of all produced graphics of high quality with a wonderful creative flair. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Rita and I am delighted to have found such a great person to work with. I highly recommend William Defoe Designs to anyone looking for a graphic designer. Thank you Rita you are amazing! Gwyn McCormack, Positive Eye Ltd More...

I wasn't the easiest bride to work with. I had a very specific vision for my wedding stationery and was aiming for perfection. Rita was incredibly accommodating and amenable to any tweaks and reworks that i requested. The finished result (save the dates, invites, posters, ceremony readings, guest quiz, table names) wowed not only me and husband to be but all of my guests, who could not speak any more highly about how amazing and beautifully crafted they looked. Her creative flair unified all the different products through reuse of unique design elements and colour themes in each, and my expectations were greatly exceeded. Rita always kept me informed regarding her availibility and deadlines, which was extremely comforting during a highly stressful time, and even helped me source printing options to ensure that the designs came out looking their best. I hope one day to be able to work with her again. More...

Thank you for your amazing recommendation Laura. It was a pleasure working with you and being able to provide a Design Service to help you realise your special day. It is always a bonus to hear such positive feedback. Many thanks. Rita

Brilliant service. Rita was very knowledgable and the design was perfect for our client.

Would highly recommend.

Thank you for your recommendation Gina from GMR. As my first client from Bark, you gave a clear and concise brief and made my job stress free. It is great working with you. Thank you. Rita

Rita is a great designer. Her work is innovative, fresh and effective commercially. The other thing I particularly like is that it does not date – clients of mine are still using her work which is several years old. She understands well how a corporate image has to work across all media, web, press, leaflets etc. Highly recommended. More...

Having worked with Guy at Nacelle for many years, we have built up a great working relationship and have an excellent understanding of the Client's requirements. It is always a pleasure working on Projects with Guy. Many thanks for your recommendation Guy. Rita

Q&A

I am a traditional creative and always start the creative process firstly by researching and processing the brief. Concepts are drawn in my sketch pad. All chosen designs are then taken to the visualisation stage using one or more of the Adobe Creative Suite. All the designs are incorporated in a PDF Presentation to the Client to be discussed and further developed or artworked. The Final Design will be supplied to the Client in their chosen formats within the desired timeframe.

A concise and detailed brief containing any existing guidelines to be adhered to, any restrictions, images to be used, colour palette, fonts. Also the timescale of the project and budget.

I love that every Day, every Client and every Project is different. My job is never mundane but a welcome challenge.

I have worked in the industry for over 20 years and wanted to have the freedom to choose the Clients and the Projects that were right for me.

I have a passion for design and always find the right creative solution for the Client. I will always work to the highest professional standard and have never missed a deadline.
