What our clients are saying.

  • Jane Hellings – Director of Development and Communications, Jesuits in Britain

    Reed have worked closely with us to develop a new brand for the Jesuits in Britain and for three of our projects.  They quickly came to a good understanding of our values and worked sensitively with a committee to produce a fairly complex brand system which has been very positively welcomed by our large organisation.  The brand guidelines are always very clear and thorough.  We particularly value their technical skill and attention to detail.


    - Jane Hellings – Director of Development and Communications, Jesuits in Britain
  • Fr Adrian Porter – The Jesuit Institute

    Working with Reed Brand has brought a focus and clarity to our design projects.  They are genuinely interested in the identity and work which they are branding, and designing for, and ask good questions which have helped better articulate our own vision and expression of what we are trying to achieve.  The engagement in thoroughly professional but always friendly.  As much time is taken as is needed to achieve a result that both client and designers are happy with.

    The finished results look excellent and have provided a library of logo and design elements which have worked well in a variety of formats and for different audiences.

    With Reed Brand there is no problem going back and asking for further tweaks and variations which allows us to have confidence that the design needs of our work is robustly supported.

    - Fr Adrian Porter – The Jesuit Institute
  • You’ve done a brilliant job and we are very happy with the findings that you have presented to us.  We have much to consider and work on!  We will of course keep in touch but I wanted to drop you a note today just to say how pleased we are and appreciative of your professional and sensitive approach.


    - Kerry Bertram – Marketing Manager, The Marist School
  • It is…crucial to ensure that you as a school community have a very clear idea of where you are, where you want to be and what your vision is.

    - Felicity Blake – King’s Ely
  • … our time together was extremely well spent, largely because you are very good indeed at eliciting reactions from us that go to build up a picture of where we are and where we wish to go…
