Paul Aboud – Managing Director

“Friendly, and yet spot on. Katie has a refreshing eye for detail and hitting the nail on the head. Having run around the houses and consulted numerous groups only to be flooded with an array of ideas that blended into each other, it was a real relief when Kate’s ideas cut through the crowd. Being able to say “yes” with complete confidence was so important and such a weight off my mind.
I would recommend Katie to anyone looking for refreshing and innovative ideas. Katie has really considered our business and its’ aims.
I recommend Katie with total confidence.”

Victoria Aboud – V&H Homes

“Katie is excellent. I’ve gone from seeing Gladstone Design as a help to our business to relying on them completely for all our marketing projects and brand management. Always appreciating who we are and what we are trying to achieve, Katie has been the fresh air blowing through our business for the last 3 years. I could not recommend Gladstone Design highly enough.”


Cassandra Crawford – Director

“Katie makes the design process easy, she listens carefully to the brief, and has the skill and experience to turn the conceptual into the tangible. Her designs are relevant, elegant, and eye-catching and are easily translated into other media. On a personal level she communicates well, takes pride in her work and is determined to achieve customer satisfaction. Thank you Gladstone Design.”

Garry Milner – Director

“We have used Katie for various design jobs within our company Milners.
Our recent rebranding exercise was born from Katie’s superb vision and natural ability to create. She came up with brilliant design ideas, to our deadlines and always went the extra mile, keeping us in the loop.
Katie has designed a complete rebrand for Milners; creating our new logo, re-designing our two Ashtead showroom exteriors, sales literature, stationary and continues to produce our ongoing advertising campaigns. She is currently working on the interior of both Milners branches.
We were particularly impressed with her ability to manage our project from start through to production, making the process incredibly easy for us.
Katie is a very creative individual who is full of initiative; all her ideas were spot on and we highly recommend her work for a flexible and personal touch.
You will be very impressed.”

Gladstone design recently rebranded my business, giving me a simple, effective & fresh new look. Katie is friendly, professional & creative. I didn’t give her much to go on and she knew exactly what my business and I needed. Katie was always prompt to tweak ideas & managed the printing & delivery of my finished product. An all round great local service. I will be recommending to everyone!

Heather Angell – Managing Director – Your Planning Angel

“I cannot recommend the team at Gladstone Design more highly. Their enthusiasm and attention to detail is incredible. I hired them for brand design and the customer service was exceptional from start to finish.”

Leroy Chandler – Manager Trethias Farm

“Gladstone Design were elemental in the creation of our brand identity & online presence . Trethias Farm had a fragmented identity, through many different companies involved with printing, signage & stationary. Gladstone Design created & utilised an easily recognisible logo, which allowed for further development, including web access, new website & staff uniform. Now all our signage is being replaced or refreshed, and all areas of the business are tied together with the new logo. Understanding our market, and the area within which we operate came easily to them, and Gladstone Design were able to develop the first real branding for the business, within its 60+ years running. Friendly, passionate & easy to contact – even with the distance involved, meant we felt comfortable with the process, and we were exceptionally pleased with the finished product. Gladstone Design understood our brief, and the difficult needs involved with ourselves at every step. Thank you so much for making our business feel complete and professional as we progress.”

Sara Rositter – Director – William Dyer

I could not wish for a more helpful, enthusiastic, creative design company. Katie has been designing flyers, adverts and more for the last couple of years, and ongoing packaging, and website. We feel totally confident and look forward to more projects in her capable hands.
