    A local consortium, based around the Kendal based company Designworks, successfully tendered for the delivery of the Lakes and Dales Cycleway Marketing plan in the spring of 2015.

    The team delivered the commission to a very high standard, impressing with the way they took ownership of the project and delivered pragmatic solutions to the challenges faced along the way. Two examples of this were:

    · The commission required establishment of the brand for the new Cycleway project. I was particularly impressed with the evidence based approach they team took in achieving this. It has often been the case that branding of a new tourism product reflects the concerns of the funders, by completing extensive research and stakeholder engagement the final brand was firmly focused on the end user greatly contributing to the success of the project.

    · The quality of the marketing material produced has been consistently high, meeting the expectations of the commission. The website in particular can stand comparison with those of with other new recreational cycle products in Europe and achieved the objective of appealing to a distinctive market segment.

    I am very happy with the service provided by the consortium and would invite them to tender for similar projects in the future.

    Working with Designworks is always a joy. They are efficient, professional, friendly and incredibly creative. Our publicity always looks beautiful with minimal direction or input from us. We are constantly being complimented on the design of our magazines and leaflets and this is entirely down to excellent work of Designworks.

    Designworks take the pressure off which is ironic when you’re up against it with design projects! Their team combines calm management with creative flair and their product combines quality with affordability – gold dust.

    Designworks designed and produced a stunning banner, eyecatching, informative bookmarks and a ‘short-listed for’ sticker for The Carbon Cycle book. They were fast, supremely professional and the end results are just great. I’d always go to them first now, and would recommend them to anyone looking for quality, affordable, effective design. THANK YOU!!

    Designworks produced the goods to develop a variety of beautifully crafted fliers for our current and future clients. It has improved the conversion rates of some of our enquiries and provided a better response to our marketing campaign.

    Designworks provide me with affordable, great looking websites and, more importantly, they use a user-friendly Content Management System. I have been working with websites for 13 years now, and over that time have used a number of CMSs including Drupal, Joomla, WordPress and Contribute. Of these I find WordPress the simplest and most intuitive to use by a country mile. The flexibilty of the system, the customisation options through third party widgets etc and the opportunity to edit ‘on the fly’ from my Android devices means it wins hands down in any head to head challenge with other systems I’ve used.

    Designworks made me a beautiful, simple website. Most importantly for me, it is very simple to update, as the WordPress system is easy to use for a non-techy like me. Great team, great product.

    It is always a pleasure to deal with the Designworks team. They are always easy to contact and have been a great help to my wife and I as we have sought to establish a new estate agency. We have always found them to exceed expectations without exceeding our limited budget for branding. Many have commented on their design work!!

    Designworks are always our first choice when it comes to designing and printing new publicity materials. They are always very welcoming, creative and efficient, even if we go to them with a last-minute request! We’ve worked together to create some great documents over the years and would recommend them to anyone. Thanks very much to Rory and the team

    Designworks has produced leaflets, posters and other materials to help promote the Electric Bicycle Network. I have found them a pleasure to work with – patient, creative and dependable. They have also overhauled our website – we were really impressed with the effort and skill they put in to devising solutions to some really demanding functionality, as well as giving it a wonderfully fresh look and feel.

    I have really enjoyed working with Designworks to come up with a new concept and a new approach for my website which had become outdated. They are a very patient as well as extremely creative team, very responsive and they make sure their clients are aware of the possibilities, which gave me the confidence to try something a bit different!

    I have worked with Designworks for many years and have no hesitation in recommending them. It is important to me to work with designers who are able to develop my ideas (or explain to me why something won’t actually work) and turn them into a workable end product. Designworks have never let me down – and I actually enjoy the process of working with them.

    I have used Designworks to design and print a leaflet as well as design a company logo for us and I can honestly say their ideas, attention to detail and end product were first class.
    Rory and the team are as helpful and professional as we and any client could wish for.
    I very much look forward to using Designworks in the future.
    Thanks to all at Designworks for all your help.

    Designworks were the third company we’d used over the years for our web site design. We found them fantastically easy to deal with from start to finish and the whole process of building a complete new web site worked seamlessly from start to finish. It was as though the guys at Designworks were plugged into my thoughts as well as my website and business.

    We can also thoroughly recommend having WordPress designed into the web site. The instructions provided to use this invaluable tool are incredibly easy and straight forward.

    We look forward to working with Designworks on future projects, expansion and advertising campaigns. Thanks again gentlemen!

    We had a fantastic response to the newsletter that Designworks created. The brief was to produce something a little different from the norm. The finished design increased sales significantly over the same time the previous year.

    We needed a new look for our brochure so we asked Designworks to assist us in producing it. The project was a combined effort and it was beneficial to have a patient designer, like Richard, who allowed us to continuously change our mind and look at differing layouts. We are very happy with the end result and consider it an essential part of the hotel’s developing marketing strategy. Thanks for a great working partnership.
