Client Compliments

We’re always delighted when our clients take the time to say nice things about us, but what makes it even better is when those compliments are not just about what we do, but how we do it.

  • “As ever, your attention to detail and vision leave me speechless. A feat in itself. I know how hard you worked on this project for us, and it showed. The stand, the social media, the messaging and everything was brilliantly coordinated. Please pass on my thanks to the team and everyone else who has had the misfortune to work with us! We got some very nice opportunities from the show, and our positioning as the ONLY Global eCommerce solution provider was certainly cemented.”

    Dave Emerson - Group Sales and Marketing Director, SEKO Logistics

  • “Shine always come up with the answer, regardless of how lacking in detail or bizarre our brief is! They have the ability to take my scribbles and turn them into something that looks great, and they never miss a deadline. I don’t know how I’d manage without them.”

    Susie Ward - Director, Spitfire Technology Group

  • “I realise that we must have been more challenging than ever before, due to the number of changes and delays on the various items, which has meant you have had to seek alternative production methods. Despite all of this you have kept calm, been a delight to deal with and have actively sought to keep our costs down.”

    Andrew Skinner - Group New Business Development Manager, Toolbank

  • “Thank you to you and the ‘Shiny Team’ for the superb artwork for the Tower Project at St Winfrids Church. The range of posters and A6 postcard flyers has really given us a great opportunity to alert the young people of Totton, and the surrounding area, to the facility we have here at the Tower. Getting a grant to cover this work, especially when demands are high on limited available funds, is always a struggle – but the effort and success of the artwork commissioned and printed through you has made it worthwhile.”

    Howard Marsh - Chair, Tower Project

  • “Shine have been a joy to work with. They took our amateur brief and turned it into a beautifully designed, professional and dynamic site which has attracted positive feedback all round and fully reflects the values of our business. They are inventive, efficient and not afraid to give an honest opinion when required! Lovely people, creative minds and their great ethos resulted in an enjoyable process and a wonderful result.”

    Jo Henry - P.A to Managing Director, Yattendon Estates

  • “The Shine team recently redesigned the website for the Elvetham Estate. They brought endless creativity, diligence and enthusiasm to the project and did an excellent job in capturing our diverse commercial, community and environmental characteristics. We are delighted with the final result and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”

    John Featherby - (Shoremount) Strategic Consultant, Elvetham Estate

  • “Working with Shine has been an absolute inspiration. We’re so pleased with the interpretation and expansion of our ideas, the resulting designs and fabulous support we receive from the incredibly talented and friendly team. A huge thank you!”

    Helen Molyneux - Founder, colourful dove

  • “I have known Sam and Shine Creative for almost a decade now and we’ve had an incredible relationship with her and her team. They are enormously creative and turn things around in a flash. The team frequently come up with brilliant ideas – you can be assured that your company and its brand identity are in very capable hands.”

    Paul Gardiner - Group Marketing Director, Mantis Collection

  • “Following a competitive bid process, we selected Shine to help us with a considerable rebranding project. This included our logo, sub-brands, website, exhibition stands, business cards, promotional items and presentation templates. The outputs have been beyond our expectations, and Sam and her team have made a significant contribution to the on-going success of our company. It is a pleasure working with Shine, and we view them as an on-going, trusted partner.”

    Stuart Hearn - Business Development Manager, Total Logistics

  • “Under Sam’s expert guidance, Shine has successfully managed an array of marketing and communication campaigns for us – including our rebranding, advertising, direct mail, exhibitions, brochures, website and e-marketing activities. Shine has also developed creative solutions for our clients’ branding and communications campaigns in the education sector, from concepts and copywriting to creative design and execution across a range of traditional and digital media.”

    Simon Rule - CEO, Place Group

  • “Shine’s solutions are intelligent, articulate and inspiring – and have helped Place Group to promote itself as a market leader. Sam and her team are extremely responsive and have never let us down. We work in partnership to get it absolutely right, and they seamlessly combine creativity with tight project management. They have finessed the art of delivering beautiful and compelling work. And they are fast and cost-effective to boot! Above all, they are fun and a pleasure to work with!”

    Simon Rule - CEO, Place Group

  • “I’d just like to take a moment in our hectic schedules to say a very big thank you for all your time, support and dedication. You are true professionals, your attention to detail is impeccable, the quality of your design work outstanding and you deal with everything thrown your way with such finesse.”

    Graham Vass - General Manager, Ellenborough Park

  • “I have been thoroughly impressed with Shine’s professional and expert service. Nothing was too much for the team. They were always on hand to help with any last minute changes and responded quickly with lots of great solutions! Everything was delivered in good time, with a central contact keeping me informed at every stage. I have been really pleased with the results of the website, prospectus and other services and cannot recommend Shine enough – they are a pleasure to work with.”

    Zoe Dunn - Headteacher, Rimon Jewish Primary School

  • “Congratulations on a fantastic job on the new website. It’s one of the best sites we’ve seen, period – incredibly slick and easy to navigate, and I think it blows our competitors out of the water! The work you’ve done went down amazingly well at our sales meeting, and has been met with great excitement. It’s bold, logical and exciting, and I think it is an excellent representation of our culture. GREAT job!”

    Mark White - President & COO, SEKO Logistics

  • “Thanks for all your hard work! We’re thrilled with how it all looks – exactly what we wanted. I’ve had great feedback from parents about the site. They love the logo; the professional, ‘fabulous and classy’ look and feel which ‘inspires great confidence’; as well as the easy to find information.


    Sue Dudley - Founder Member, Holyport College

  • “Shine have worked with us for some time now and their attention to detail and creative input has been invaluable. It has certainly made a difference to all of our marketing collateral and we will continue to use them for all of our branded goods in the future.”

    Susan Thompson - The Elvetham Hotel

  • “Shine have become an invaluable extension of our company in the production of brochures of the highest quality, and in the delivery of superbly managed and creative projects which allow us to focus on our core activities. Their team of designers are always friendly, energetic, proactive and solution-orientated. They provide a real value for money service and we would not hesitate to recommend them to any business (big or small) who wants to project professional and powerful marketing solutions.”

    Lyndon Worrall - Managing Director, Legacy Ventures

  • “Shine always come up with the answer, regardless of how lacking in detail or bizarre our brief is! They have the ability to take my scribbles and turn them into something that looks great, and they never miss a deadline. I don’t know how I’d manage without them.”

    Susie Ward - Director, Spitfire Technology Group

  • “Sam and her team at Shine are all complete stars. Their creativity, professionalism and attentiveness were evident across every project we worked with them on – from designing our software interface and developing our messaging to creating a number of exhibition stands for us. And many of these with short turnarounds – which were greatly appreciated! I look forward to working on the next campaigns with them all very soon – I know it will be another painless and stress-free experience.”

    Graham Barrow
 - Managing Director, Rhenus Lupprians

  • “Shine provides a friendly, professional, innovative and diligent service. They take pride in getting under the skin of the client’s business and capturing their identity – involving 20 constituent members in the case of the ETF. All this is accompanied by technological expertise and the highest standards and integrity. It is a pleasure to see this level of service that does not cost the earth – and one senses one has come to know colleagues, with a genuine interest in the separate identity of each company.”


    Henry Beltran - Chairman, Educational Trusts' Forum

  • “May I take this opportunity to thank all of the Shine team for helping us deliver another successful Real Deals for You campaign for Toolbank […] Having worked with Shine for many years on several different projects, we work with you as close collaborative colleagues, rather than as a supplier. We really do value your input and opinions when discussing how best to develop each initiative, even though we don’t always agree. But we think it’s extremely positive to air different viewpoints, and we undoubtedly benefit from Shine’s knowledge and expertise.”

    Simon Bicknell - Marketing Development Director, Toolbank

  • “BGSA have worked with Shine Creative since our launch in 2012. They have since become an integral part of our wider team, having guided and advised us through multiple brand developments – all of which have proved to be an entirely stress-free experience because we knew we were in great hands! They go out of their way to help in any way that they can but also invest a lot of their time and resources to not only producing the design/product you’ve requested, but taking the time to fully understand the audience and context of each piece. This not only produces a great product every time, but also makes the approval/sign off process a lot quicker! We recommend them without hesitation.”

    Kirsten Lovemore - Communications Manager, Bear Grylls Survival Academy

  • “In March, we were hit by Covid – and instead of shying away, Shine stepped up their game with outstanding design, editorial and website assistance. We do not see them as an agency, we see them as a partner who are always willing to help. 6 months on, we are still getting a 5 star service and nothing is ever a problem… well done Shine!”

    Bobby Vanderplank - Marketing Manager, Dales Cornwall

  • “Shine’s branding expertise was demonstrable from the very beginning of this project. There was a clear structure adhered to for the entirety of the rebranding process, which helped to effectively manage our broad set of stakeholders and develop our thoughts on what we wanted to achieve. Shine’s creativity and ability to work effectively to tight deadlines has been invaluable and resulted in a strong new brand identity which will play a key role in the next stage of our growth.”

    Catherine Coale - Head of Marketing, Company85

  • “I knew from the start of the project that I wanted Shine to design the book, as having worked with them for 17 years, I know what brilliant creatives they are. I was 100% confident they would come up with a design that not only made Unexpected:MK look totally professional, but also made people want to pick it up and read it – and of course they did. I love how it looks and feels, and the quality of the production is, as Charlie Waite put it, ‘ten out of ten’! Thank you so much to everyone on the team who helped to make it real.”

    Gill Prince - Creator of Unexpected:MK

  • “The preparatory work for the new website was a process of research, discussion and execution that has resulted in an exciting and serviceable modern website. This is a reflection of Shine Creative’s expertise in getting to know its client’s identity, and how it wishes to promote itself for the good of many young people, who are in need of a supportive education experience. Shine Creative is to be commended for its professionalism and creative imagination which has admirably served ETF’s needs.”

    Henry Beltran - Chairman, ETF

  • “The entire Shine Creative team were absolutely amazing when it came to re-designing our website. They completely understood our vision for the site and helped us achieve everything we set out to create. Shine is our long-standing creative partner, and we look forward to continuing to work together on future projects.”
