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.

I asked Lou to design some new folder style brochures for us, and am very pleased with the outcome. Lou properly took on board our brand guidelines unlike some designers who don’t always bother to read the guidelines properly. Another way in which Lou differed was that when I gave him the wording I intended to feature in the folder, he asked me to cut it down substantially. It was a challenge to do this, but being succinct helped to create a more compelling brochure. And it was Lou’s idea to incorporate icons – something that has worked well. As a result of Lout’s direction and input, we’ve ended up with a far better folder than we would have had if a less effective designer had led the project.

I worked with Lou for over a year creating toolkits for a global brand in its infancy. Lou's support and advice was second to none. He could always be relied on to produce fantastic work that brought to life the brand and its strategy in a beautiful and logical way.

His project management skills were highly valuable, often working to tight deadlines and supporting our team throughout the year. Lou listens and takes the time to understand the problem in hand, always working towards finding the correct solution rather than the fastest one. He is calm, positive and hands-on - an absolute pleasure to work with.

(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.

Awesomely creative and efficient is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about (hug)! I had the pleasure of working with (hug) for one and a half years whilst at Giorgio Armani. It's refreshing to have partners you can rely upon to deliver creativity, with incredible attention to detail – within tight deadlines. I hope we get to work together in my next role!

Mia Zackrission, Global Head of Marketing, Farah Brands (Perry Ellis Europe)

Farah has a well established, renowned heritage but over time our brand identity had become disparate. We worked with (hug) to revitalise the Farah brand and establish a uniform/consistent guide that helped build strong brand awareness, enabling customers rediscover the distinct look for themselves. I’ve worked with Tom and team across several projects and can honestly say they are exceedingly nice people to work with!

After seeing several pitches from different companies we chose (hug) to do the branding for our new start-up company as they just seemed to get what we needed straight away. Their research into our market was thorough and relevant and design ideas were really inspiring. Every stage of the development process was well managed with just the right amount of choice and discussion and the excellent quality of the work and the service we received made the whole experience really good value for money. (hug) have been very easy to work with over the years – they have a relaxed yet totally professional approach and a great design aesthetic and I would highly recommend them..

Amanda Wakeley, Founder of Amanda Wakeley

Over the last ten years Tom and team have always demonstrated a complete understanding of the Amanda Wakeley brand, through development of our catwalk invitations for London Fashion Week to printed lookbooks. Tom has impressed us with his attention to detail and his understanding of our Lifestyle Luxury positioning.

His relaxed personality has meant he is a fun to work with and we have always been confident that he will deliver a job to the highest level on time.

Samantha Denny-Hodson, Founder of Homespun

Tom and team worked on the design of our multiple fashion brand store and was hands on with the build. The design is both innovative and practical. Thanks to (hug)'s fantastic hands on approach, all work was completed on time and on budget & we are delighted with the outcome. The guys were a pleasure to work with, able to accommodate our many & varied requirements for the store; nothing was too much trouble. The finished result is of the highest possible standard. We would be delighted to work with (hug) again and highly recommend them to anybody.
