What our clients say…


‘I’ve used Grieves Design on a regular basis since Gavin set up on his own. His knowledge of how to link what the consumer wants with the business objectives was paramount to our success. He was given fairly strict deadlines and delivered on them. He also went above and beyond our remit to integrate other B2B transactions to ensure a smoother and efficient process which gave us a greater clarity on where we were up to on each project. I’d recommend Grieves Design to anybody who is looking for an entrepreneurial approach to design and can react to fluctuating demands.”

Stuart Middlemiss, Director of Retail, Sunderland AFC, Sunderland. May 2016.

‘We were recently recommended to Gav at Grieves Design by JAM Marketing, our marketing agency, as we were looking for a new designer having been disappointed with our current one.

We sent our brief for some new brochures and packaging to Gav, who turned them round in less than 48 hours, with a cracking design, all matching our brand guidelines perfectly.

The design was fresh and unique, something we had needed for a while, and something that a string of designers hadn’t been able to provide to us.

Since then, all of our design work has been passed to Gav, and we have been extremely pleased with all of it.

We have more work ongoing and are sure we will continue to work together for many years.

We would not hesitate to recommend Gav and Grieves Design to anyone, and thank JAM for introducing him to us.’

Hayley & Simon, Foxy Hair Extensions, Newcastle. May 2016.

Creative, passionate and efficient is what comes to mind when I think of Gav at Grieves design. It was a real pleasure to hire Gav to design a flyer for a recent business campaign. Above all, I was impressed with his creative ability which really made our flyer stand out and has helped secure a number of prospect appointments for my business. Everyone wants to hire someone who not only gets the job done, but who is professional and goes that extra mile and that is exactly what Gav did – Thank You! Gav earns my highest recommendation.’

Michael Dodd, Towergate Insurance, Newcastle. November 2015. 

We had been in quest of a graphic designer for several months, but the few ones I got in touch with never seemed able to meet our taste – or were far too expensive. Finally, when I discovered Gavin Grieves through a Facebook message, it appeared likely that such a passionate designer would be the partner we had been looking for — which became obvious as soon as we started working together. After reviewing our requirements, Gavin sent us a few proposals and, taking great care, created numerous modifications. We were plainly satisfied. Most importantly, each modification introduced that special detail that makes all the difference. Needless to say we are extremely satisfied with the results. Thanks Gavin.

Mike Searle, MJS Computers Services, Ponteland, Newcastle. November 2014.

Grieves Design have done an absolutely superb job of designing a cricket brochure for Castle View Enterprise Academy.  Gavin’s work was of an extremely high standard and he provided us with the professional service and product which we’re after. The completed brochure has been used as a great marketing tool for promoting our sports provision within the primary school sector. Gavin, himself was extremely pleasant, polite and helpful, from our first meeting throughout the completion of the project. He was more than happy to make several amendments to the product, all of which were within the quoted price. Overall, it has been a pleasure to work with Grieves Design.’

Mark Appleton, Castle View Enterprise Academy, Sunderland. October 2013.
