Lou and the team at (hug) have been amazing, they understood the aims of our project and the social value we are trying to deliver. They shared our vision and made it a reality and gave 100% to help us achieve out deadlines whilst maximising the funding we had available. The feedback we have received from our customers and funders demonstrates how well the LinkMeUp site works both functionally and aesthetically. We have no hesitation in recommending (hug) to any potential new customers.
After 3 years of running our company, our branding felt tired and no longer reflective of the quality of our work. We needed a total reworking of our visual identity. We have a lot of high quality images and video from our production work. Lou took this and weaved it all together, designing a new logo, business cards, website +++
It's hard when you run a small business to hand over control and say goodbye to the way you have previously done things. At every stage Lou talked to us about our needs, how we worked and what we wanted our clients to experience, he then gave us a considered response with two or three different routes to explore.
We felt in control of the process at every stage, but overwhelming trusted Lou's judgement.
He goes beyond designing something that looks nice, instead (hug)'s work is a blend of functionality and aesthetics that reflects our work creating beautiful things, matched with technical knowhow.
I have already recommended Lou to other people and I will continue to do so. He can take a project and work on both the small scale and bigger picture simultaneously. He's also a great guy. Look no further!
In setting up Copper Tree Consulting Ltd I wanted our brand to reflect a new kind of HR to our clients. Lou immediately understood what I wanted to achieve as an initial logo and website outline. I am totally wowed by the final results (which were achieved for a very reasonable price and on a super-quick timeline). I have no doubt that the business cards, logo, watermark and website that reflect us so well, will set us up for success going forward and I look forward to continuing to work with the team to evolve and grow the ideas that have been sparked so far! I can't recommend (hug)london highly enough.
Having been recommended by a good friend to Lou, I have asked Hug London to design my practice identity and all touch points I required to get started in my new business. Lou is attentive and understands what inspires customers to a starter business like mine. His professional/helpful suggestions and ideas have opened up my own thoughts in terms of how I would like to reach out to further customer range over a period of time.
Lou is just a joy to work with and I have no hesitation to recommend him to my network.
When I asked Lou if he could help me, as I was starting my own Structural Engineering Practice. I envisaged that he would design me a logo and perhaps a letterhead. Instead, Lou produced my logo, my business card, my letterhead, my report template, my invoice template, my email signature and my website, ensuring a consistency of style and feel across all platforms. Lou doesn't sweat the small stuff, he sweats the minutiae.
From our first meeting, he listened to what I wanted to say to my existing and potential clients and established what It is that is important to them. He has worked weekends and evenings to get designs to me and in fact, it Is him that chases me for information - never the other way around. I am delighted with the work that Lou has done for me and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone thinking about refreshing or replacing their current graphics or branding. Thank you so much Lou for all your hard work.
(hug)london have done an outstanding job reworking Coformance's Onesight branding. I was amazed at how quickly they understood the essence of the product and its unique features and translated that into very strong creative output. The results way exceeded my expectations. In addition, they are great to work with: they are firm without being pushy, flexible around our constraints and very helpful with their suggestions. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
Lou has been great to work with over the last four years. Whilst re-branding and developing Amberth he intuitively understood and embraced our concerns as a growing business and created a brand we are proud of. A brand that enables us to approach new sectors with confidence and professionalism. We would recommend Lou without hesitation.
