As a Yorkshire lass, I like value for money and in all honesty, we pushed the boat out with Rushfirth Creative. Branding and image is something that we have never paid for before.

I can honestly that it has been worth every penny. Their creativity, ideas, attention detail, management of the entire process and of the supply chain involved in our signage, stationery and website have been second to none.

Not to mention, how fun, exciting and motivating it has been for myself and the entire Footprints Accountancy Team.

Is not all live yet, we are about a month away but when it is finalised, I welcome anyone to come and visit our offices to see how good we are and how good we look. Thank you so much, Howard and Kathryn.

Well, what an amazing service from start to finish! I am absolutely over the moon with our rebrand! Both Howard and Kathryn's passion really shows in both their enthusiasm, and the designs created. I got a sense that they really care!

I contacted Howard after having a brief chat at an EBA Live event. Like many other companies, I had created my business logo myself early on and new a change was drastically needed! I decided to proceed with a full rebrand and was guided through the process with ease. I could not be happier with the final result!

I have since booked onto their personal branding photoshoot and look forward to completing many other projects with them.

Thank you once again for all of your help. My new go to for everything design!

Chris Reece - 06/06/2022

Rushfirth Creative are a breath of fresh air.
I have started on a branding journey which I’m sure will continue for a very long time.
Both Howard and Kathryn are easy to talk to, can quite literally see what you want doing and will present you with some breath taking works.

I can’t wait to get my new personal and company branding out there.

The attention to detail is exemplary, the creation of assets and their usage is spot on, the advice given to me all the way through has been on point and no hard sales their work speaks for it’s self.

I’d give more stars if I could.

If you’re serious about your branding then look no further.

Thank you both !

Crisyn Braines - 30/05/2022

We started working with Howard and Kathryn of Rushfirth Creative in December last year. Every minute has been fun!
I love the way they "just get" what we are about and the type of clients we want to attract, every image they produce is perfect for what we want.
So far we have had them redesign our logo, produce our case studies and leaflets for the business, design a coaster, design a set of social media templates, sort all the images for our new website - the list goes on!
An absolute pleasure to work with, totally professional, non-complicated and we will definitely be sticking with them and giving them a shout out whenever we can.
Highly recommended

Michele Ibbs - 30/05/2022

Working with Howard and Kathryn has been a pleasure. They really want you to succeed and get the best brand possible. They have produced some great branding for us and we will continue to use them for their ongoing support.
If you think your current brand is ok… THINK AGAIN. These guys work will blow your mind

Adam Dilger - 27/05/2022

Rushfirth Creative have done it again!

I used Howard and Kathryn for the re-brand of Dive Sight Ltd and the results were fantastic......

So there was no doubt in my mind where I'd be going when we needed to refresh the look and feel of my other business - and I wasn't disappointed.

The skills and knowledge of this team are second to none, and they managed to bring my business back to life and into the 21st century!

The feedback we've had on our new name and logo have once again surpassed my expectations and the marketing material they continue to work on for us has been a game changer.

Rushfirth Creative is a powerhouse, and a business I'm glad to have as an extension of my businesses!

If you need world class branding and marketing material, look no further.

Liam Ward - 28/04/2022

Huge thank you to Howard and Kathryn for the amazing work they've produced for my Personal Branding.
They made the process so simple and stress free.

I'd 100% recommend anyone who is thinking of any rebrand or personal branding to contact them.

I'll definitely be using them again in the near future.

Andrew Bell - 16/04/2022

Howard and Kathryn created our new personal and business branding, and I am really happy with it.

I had a great day out in Yorkshire for the photos! We would highly recommend anyone who is serious about making their business look "Next Level" to get in touch with them.

The pizza is also a must!!!

Thanks so much both of you.

Martyn Lacey - 15/04/2022

I’ve used Howard and Kathryn for my personal branding and my re-brand of my plumbing and heating business. It’s unbelievable how they’ve transformed how we look. Professionalism is the statement, we now know what it takes to get to the top, it all starts with your brand! Get your brand right and everything else in line with your brand and you’ll fly!
I can’t thank Rushfirth Creative enough for their expertise and ongoing support. They are now our brand guardians and will help us along the way to smash our goals!!

Scott Duncan - 13/04/2022

Howard and Kathy put together our rebrand and I am absolutely delighted with it.

Super professional service and great care and attention into what we wanted from our logo. All help with print media since has been excellent.

Thank you both so much.

Highly recommended

Tom Wilkinson - 09/04/2022

Wow what can I say about Howard and Kathy apart from absolute class.

It's rare to meet people in business with such integrity and quality. Not only do they go out of their way to make sure you're happy but the standard of the work is absolutely outstanding.

I asked Howard to completely rebrand my company and wow what a job he's done, I literally couldn't be happier with what he's created but that's just the start, anything else i've asked him to do it's the best i've ever seen.

Thank you for everything, I have a business brand i'm super proud so show off to people.

Grant Chaney - 17/02/2022

Howard & Kathy are truly professional individuals who make it their mission to rocket your brand awareness. the finished product is absolutely top notch and really does make you stand out from the crowd!

Highly recommend

Tom Spikings - 31/01/2022

I first approached Howard and Kathy several years ago when I was at a crossroads in my business. We needed a serious rebrand in my coaching / networking organisation to enable it to grow and reach a significantly larger and wider audience.

I'd seen the work he'd done with other business groups and with other public figures, so I knew it would be a good fit for my vision for the Elite Business Academy, both initially, and on an ongoing basis.

Howard and Kathy care deeply about their work and their clients. They have a wealth of experience and it shows. Their work is clever, original, creative, and just WORKS.

Craig Wilkinson - 21/01/2022

Amazing service from Howard & Kathryn. Went from being a stranger lost in competition with everyone else to someone that stands out instantly overnight. Howard and Kathryn helped me learn about branding with absolutely no pressure. The service I got was amazing but the lightbulb moment I got from a chat with Howard is something money can't buy.

I went for the personal branding to stand out, then wanted to take it further getting new creatives for my website and then ultimately redo my company logo because the images that was created were far superior than my Paint 3D logo.

As someone who is not camera friendly and reserved, the photoshoot was the most daunting aspect but this was done in the most relaxed way possible and a lot of the shots came across so natural.

It was a long drive from Brighton to Yorkshire but definitely worth it.,

Matthew Reynolds - 08/11/2021

Howard and Katherine Have always been fantastic to deal with I would have no hesitation in recommending either of them to work on any projects you may have currently or in the future

Many thanks Tom

Tom Pickering - 05/10/2021

Howard and Kathryn have always been fantastic on any projects they have worked on for clearance and cleanup I would have no hesitation in recommending them if you have current projects or projects in the future.

Many thanks Tom

Tom Pickering - 05/10/2021

I met Howard through the EBA and after getting to know him and his work decided he was the right choice when i wanted to start working on my personal branding.
Howard and Kathryn took time to talk to me to get to know me, my business and what my vision for my future was. From there we arranged my branding photo shoot which I was very unsure about.
At the shoot they were amazing at not only helping me relax into it but getting the right poses and images to get the best from the shoot.
I definately made the right choice and if any one is considering anything about branding id highly recommend a chat with Rushforth Creative.
I will be using their services again for a company branding refresh.

Matthew Richardson - 17/09/2021

What can I say, they are legends.

Their talent matches their ethics - both are top class.

Along with Kathryn, they form an amazing duo. I have been lucky enough to know Team Rushfirth for around 10 years.

Within that time they have worked on numerous projects with me and always delivered work that makes you wonder how they have done it.

Great people to know. Make everything simple and always have time for you.

Danny Matharu - 07/09/2021

Cannot recommend Rushfirth Creative highly enough, they captured my vision and created it in my logo, all my branding and social media. They really listened to what I wanted when and what they came up with is outstanding. They are so professional and they really care and look after their customers. I’ve loved and continue to love working with them, thank you so much."

Rachel Gilbert - 30/07/2021

Howard and Kathy recently helped us complete our rebrand, they were helpful and very responsive throughout the process. They understood what we wanted to achieve with our new brand from the off and they did that with a 5 star service. We could not recommend them highly enough. Thank you

Ben Townsend - 26/07/2021

Big thanks to Howard for all the work he has done for me. The redesign of the company logo is fantastic along with my new business cards and even a zoom back drop, but the photo soot and the personal branding pictures for social media are net level! I could not be happier. and a lovely bloke to boot!!

simon keenlyside - 22/07/2021

We have had several designs created now over 3 different businesses by Howard & Kathryn, and these are the words we describe their business to others.

"If you want the WOW factor with expert design for your personal or company brand, then look no further than Howard and Kathryn of Rushfirth Creative. Clean, quality designs that are outstanding and they know how to get the message across."

Jason McGlone - 22/07/2021

Fantastic service and we are so pleased with our new branding and logo, it looks fantastic. The whole process was made very easy for me and completed in the desired timeframe which I appreciate as I am always so busy! Would definitely recommend Rushfirth Creative and will be using them again in the future.

Nikki Lewis - 19/07/2021

Knowledgable, professional and full of fantastic ideas.

Working with Howard and Kathryn has been great and I am over the moon with the work that they have done on our rebrand, our social media banners, our adverts and all of the visuals for our new website.
Really nice people and I would thoroughly recommend to everyone.

John Lawson - 19/07/2021

The breadth of work Howard has created for me has been enormous and it's an absolute joy to receive each new piece that I commission. His ability to translate what I have in my head, into what are often works of art, is incredible. He has an attention to detail to die for, and his reliability is second to none. I would highly recommend him without hesitation to anyone wanting graphics of any nature

Richard McCann - 19/07/2021

Top class service from beginning to end, Howard and Kathryn did an amazing job with my company branding refresh and even a new launch sub-brand!
Nothing was too much trouble, listened to all my concerns and feedback and came up with amazing logos and branding!”

Paul McLaughlin - 19/07/2021

From start to finish these guys were amazing. I gave them the brief on what i wanted and with their expert knowledge they came up with exactly what i was looking for. I would highly recommend Rushfirth Creative for any business or personal branding project without a doubt!

adam setterington - 20/07/2021

I’ve long admired Howard and Kathryn’s work. The personal and business branding they produce is always exceptional.
I decided to have a full rebrand which included a new business name and logo.
From my first enquiry through to the completion of this project I’ve been wowed by the process and the end result is phenomenal.
The whole process was seamless. The only thing I found hard was choosing between the amazing options I was presented with.
I can’t recommend Rushfirth creative enough. The feedback I’ve had from both old and new customers has just confirmed how good the work is.

Howard and Kathryn I look forward to working with you again very soon. Thank you so much for all your hard work.

Richard Copperwheat - 19/07/2021

"I went to Kathy and Howard with absolutely nothing. No ideas, concepts or plan of what I wanted my new company to be called, never mind what I wanted my brand to look like. From the first meeting I had with them, they were brilliant … and I came away with an identity for my business. They are now my go to company for everything from my personal branding to marketing material."

James Broomfield - 19/07/2021

Excellent service from start to finish, both Howard and Kathryn couldn't do enough for us. We would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting design and branding work doing. thank you again for everything...

James Binks - 19/07/2021

They were great! I'm an electrician and don't have a clue about branding. These guys pointed me in the right direction and showed me what would be best for my business. I had a photo shoot with them and produced some awesome social media banners and profile pictures.

James Finney Finney Electrical - 21/07/2021

"The quality of Rushfirth Creative’s service and attention to detail is second to none. Because of the service levels, I can assure Howard and his team they will be our go to branding company for all our needs going forward."

Gary Ainley - 21/07/2021

If you are looking to develop and improve your brand, or even have a new start up then look no further than here. Im not the most confident person, however Rushfirth Creative helped me through everything and provided me with the confidence i needed to expand our brand and message. I didnt even approach Rushfirth Creative with a clear brief, but they knew exactly how to get the best out of me and my company. Im so pleased I made the leap to improve our brand, and i know i chose the best possible company to help me achieve this in Rushfirth Creative. Im a big fan!

Lisa Leach - 22/07/2021

After having a logo for nearly two years and not knowing what I actually wanted from a new logo Howard went above and beyond to create the corporate logo I wanted and the feedback has been incredible so thank you so much, defo recommend you anyone looking for a graphic designer.

Duane Gilbert - 19/07/2021

I would 100% recommend Howard and Kathryn and trust them whole heartedly with your brand because they will not disappoint, especially if you let them do what they need to do and work with them. I had to change my company name and everything, but it was so worth it for the end result. I now feel professional and able to compete with the big videographers of the wedding and commercial industries.

Adam Farrell - 19/07/2021

Howard & Kathryn are a great team of creators and have such an eye for detail. We recently attended a course at their offices on creating and editing on Mac’s and the training and advice was invaluable. They have created facebook and LinkedIn banners for us to to give our company the professional look.

blinds expert - 19/07/2021

Big thanks to Howard for all the work he has done for me. The redesign of the company logo is fantastic along with my new business cards and even a zoom back drop, but the photo soot and the personal branding pictures for social media are net level!

simon keenlyside - 19/07/2021

Absolutely fantastic to have worked with you on our rebrand. From start to finish your approach was knowledgeable and professional and overdelivered on my expectations of what we would receive.

Neil Tappin - 19/07/2021

I knew what I wanted to achieve with my new branding in order to scale up to franchise! Working with Howard and Kathy helped bring my vision to life! Their expertise and knowledge was second to none and I was highly delighted with the whole experience of working with them both. Friendly yet professional and I am blown away with the results. I love my branding! Strong relationship formed and with the click of a mouse they are on hand to help again as and when I need it! Thank you.

Dawn Brown - 19/07/2021

Howard and Kathy always go the extra mile to ensure they know what is wanted, and the results they produce are always impressive.

I have loved the work they have done for me, and on top of that, they are a couple of the nicest people you will meet.

If you are looking for help with your company branding and marketing, I would highly recommend them.

Gareth Boot - 19/07/2021

Howard and Kathryn took my branding to the next level!
They have a knack for taking your ideas and really making something special.

From the initial photo shoot, to the branding guidelines, to the finished product, the process was simple and the quality second to none!

I wouldn't use anyone else, and these guys are not only the best at what they do, but have become good friends.

Liam Ward - 19/07/2021

"A great place if you want your branding done professionally. Howard and Kathryn are absolutely brilliant and I'm really looking forward to working with them going forward."
They really take what’s in your head however vague and bring it to life.

Darren Russell - 15/07/2021

I’ve got by far the best branding within my industry now, you just can’t even compare it with any others. I didn’t have much budget for the whole business anyway but I’m so glad I prioritised my branding because I understand how important that is. Very proud of my branding so thank you team Rushfirth you’re without a doubt the branding go to.

Harry Wilkinson - 16/07/2021

I’d like to thank Howard and Kathryn Rushfirth for the re-branding of our company. Artificial Super Grass asked Rushfirth Creative to help create an awesome company brand using their amazing skills. With thought provoking designs and always thinking outside the box, they both always ensure they hit our customers pain points! This husband and wife team are clearly a leading authority in brand awareness and will work with us for many years to come.

Neil Conway - 16/07/2021

Howard & Kathy really took the time to study our business & competitors. Their attention to detail is exceptional. They knew exactly how to captivate everything we are as business into our branding (both business & personal branding) & we are absolutely thrilled with the outcome.

Lilly Adkins - 16/07/2021

Both Howard and Katherine are extreme professionals they make your business look so much more professional and do it all at a fair price with a smile on their face I will not hesitate to recommend them to anybody for any of their services thank you to you both for the great help you have given me over the last couple of years many thanks tom

Tom Pickering - 15/07/2021

"Having Rushfirth Creative create new personal branding is without doubt the one single thing that has had the greatest positive impact. Customers have actually advised that it was the professionalism that they conveyed that brought them to me rather than the competition, and I wasn't by any means the cheapest option. Well worth spending the money to get this right."

Craig Wilkinson - 16/07/2021

I have used Kathryn and Howard from Rushfirth Creative a few times now for my branding and Howard's work always amazes me!

He is such a professional in his industry and I get constant 'wows' when I post on social media the work that Howard does for me.

I would highly recommend Rushfirth Creative.

Beverley Flanagan - 12/07/2021

If you are looking for a true expert in branding then look no further. You have found the best!

Howard and Kathryn were absolutely brilliant in the work they did for me.

Right from the start their communication was first class. They talked me through the new branding and had so many ideas. I now have branding that I am proud off.

The photo shoot I booked was such an enjoyable experience. I was very nervous but had no need to be. Professional, experts and friendly!

I also engaged with them to create me some social media adverts. Once again I was blown away by the creative ideas Howard had. My adverts are simply amazing!

I cannot wait to use them again for my website work and branding up new services.

If you want the best then you have found them!

Leigh Purdy - 28/06/2021

We are absolutely blown away with our new business and personal branding!

Howard and Kathryn have such a brilliant creative flair.

They really take the time to get to know more about you and your business, so they get the branding spot on.

They are also so friendly and really easy to work with. The whole experience was so enjoyable.

We now feel that our new branding helps us look more confident and professional.

We can't thank them enough.

Highly recommend to anyone who wants their branding to stand out from the crowd!

Clare Ward - 24/06/2021

Howard and his charismatic personality was tasked with a very difficult job, completing a photo shoot of me and my wife for our business. I am generally not the first to get on a photo...But!...he saw angles and images of us I has never seen before...and then told us these are great, though I thought at the time it\'s just a photo. At the time I felt nervous and out of my comfort zone, it was in the middle of Covid, so procedures and things needed to be adhered to, which did not help.
So, what was the result? ...simply, quite fabulous. I nearly asked who the model was that has stepped in my place. I think Howard was a bit alarmed though when we turned up with nearly a full wardrobe.
Howard and Kathryn showed there experience, getting us settled and comfortable, full of ideas and conversations to get the best out of us both... Thank you both, great value, outstanding photos, and a confidence boost.
