What my clients say

Working with JM Creates has been an absolute pleasure from start to finish! Jackie and I recently collaborated on updating my branding, the redesign of my website and creating a suite of sewing workbooks for the courses I teach. The whole process has been exceptionally smooth. Jackie totally understood my vision and I went away so confident after our initial meeting. The designs came through so quickly and I was hugely impressed when I opened the preview emails. Her attention to detail is exceptional, the whole process has been so professional and I am very proud of the outcome!

Jackie expertly put together my EP artwork and created a stunning cover for digital and print! She listened to my initial ideas and seemed to know exactly what I was after, creating a series of design routes inspired by some of my favourite CD covers over time. The first time I saw the completed designs and showed them to my family and friends, we were speechless, they are really beautiful. She put the existing photo centre stage and really brought it out with fonts and colours that matched it. She was so patient and inspiring to work with, which I really valued, as I was releasing music for the first time and managing it myself which can be challenging. I really loved working with you Jackie – thank you so much.

Jackie recently did a rebranding exercise for me, ahead of the launch of my new website. I’m delighted with the results and thoroughly enjoyed the process. I was pretty vague about what I wanted and Jackie was able to translate my muddled thoughts into a really exciting logo package, and help me think about how I wanted to use it. She worked in tandem with my website builder and made the whole thing very easy for me. A really great experience, I would thoroughly recommend!
