I've known Daniel for around 20 years and during that time it has been a joy watching his talent grow into his profession. I recently commissioned Daniel to design a logo for my company and was pleased with the design and quality of the logo and constant updates and requests for feedback throughout his creative process. I will definitely look to Daniel for my future design requirements.

I commissioned Daniel to design my business logo and truly have to say it was a great experience! Daniel was really attentive and came up with numerous designs and amendments until I was happy and I love my logo! I had previously paid for the services of a different web designer in Coventry and was so disappointed with the service, attitude and designs that I walked away! Following my logo I chose Creative Script to design my website. Yet again, Daniel did not disappoint me. We were in regular contact throughout the construction of Valmya and I was able to express my own ideas and any adaptations I wanted to my site. I now have a sophisticated, easy to use branded website. I feel confident in knowing that if I need follow on assistance regardless of my website being complete, I can still email Creative Script and I will get a response quickly! Thank you Daniel!
