Geoff Shepherd

Chairman, The Yorkshire Mafia

“Howard has produced some stunning work for us. More than that he made it look easy and he made it easy for us as clients. That requires deep expertise, a warm and empathetic personality and the ability to really get under the skin of the brief. Throw in some knock-out design work and you'll understand why we keep going back. Really really good.”

“For expertise, understanding and pure talent – it just doesn’t get any better.”
"Howard is an amazing individual. The breadth of work he has created for me has been enormous and its an absolute joy in receiving 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 wanting graphics of any nature. He will never let you down and will in fact go far more than the extra mile."

“In a nutshell Howard is a creative genius.
His expertise shone through from start to finish when I approached him to be the creative force behind a project. His approach to work and to me as a client was exceptional & I have been happy to recommend him to others on many occasions.
A well as his professional expertise Howard is quite simply a great bloke. Respectful & considerate of his clients and friends, modest and endearing. I am sure we will work together many times.”

“For a business that is evolving, having a company who respond as quickly and effectively as Rushfirth Creative is very important, allowing us to make changes as the market requires so we can keep ahead of the competition.”

Rashmi Dubé

The moment I met Rushfirth Creative I knew it was a fit for the project. The brief was design my book cover and provide illustrations. Howard’s vision of the cover had me sold. He listened carefully to my brief and my views took them all on board and created something I could not have imagined. Howards visionary approach and design together with Kathryn’s management for this particular project proved a winning team.

Andy Brown

Director at BrightWorks

“Howard created a great character for YorBuy and hit the nail right on the head early on in the process. He's imaginative and was able to interpret what me and my business partner, Geoff wanted with ease. I'm looking forward to working more closely with Rushfirth Creative in the future.”

“Rushfirth Creative have played an integral part in the success of my business over the last year; we employed them to create a fresh new brand for us and they certainly did that. Both Howard and Kathy were enthusiastic with plenty of ideas, taking the business ethos and creating sharp visuals for our social media as well as a stand out logo and website.
They have been invaluable with marketing ideas that have helped our business grow significantly in 2015.”

"You are a legend Howard Rushfirth.”

There are three words to describe Howard and Kathy and the work they produce; outstanding, outstanding and outstanding !!

Outstanding creativity, outstanding value and outstanding people. 

What more can I say?
I still struggle to understand why even MORE people don't use his excellent services. Oh that's a second word to describe his work; excellent.”

“Thank you Howard Rushfirth for your support, brilliance and patience."

"I've had the privilege of working with Rushfirth Creative for 6 years and will continue to do so. A truly exceptional talent" Be a 'stand out' exhibitor.”

Phil Pond

Managing Director, Scarlet Opus

“A client of mine wanted to have a short animation to demonstrate to potential customers how simple and yet brilliant their building product innovation was to fit. I approached Kathryn & Howard to ask if it was something they could do? Now I’m not a technical person and find it hard to paint a fence, but did my best to describe what ‘Aludrain’ was, why it was innovative and how it was installed.
Treacle, mud, fog all spring to mind when I think of how I did.
However, this was the result  Aludrain Animation
A fantastic new logo and a simple yet brilliant animation, if you had been subjected to my briefing you would truly understand how fantastic both are. I was happy, my client was knocked out by it and it’s generated twice their previous sales level in the past year.
Be kind to yourself; speak with Kathryn and Howard before choosing anyone else.”
“As our business developed it became important to build a strong brand identity for Agenci and tied together what is set to be the biggest Cyber Security Conference outside London, Cyber Security Europe.
We chose Rushfirth Creative to be our creative partner.  Both Howard and Kathy worked closely with us to understand who we are and what we are about. It was invaluable to have people that really understand you and become a part of your business. To have someone that you can build a relationship with, who are not just selling you a deliverable. Rushfirth Creative really get it.
They met with us. The most important step. Meeting us and getting to know us. They understood who we were. By meeting with us and spending time with us Rushfirth Creative were able to understand who we were, what we do and what our aspirations were.
They performed a brand review, only by reviewing the brand Rushfirth Creative were able to make improvements to the existing Agenci brand and develop Cyber Security Europe brand identities.
The first real deliverable was the mood board that allowed a collaborative approach to brand development. By asking yourself the questions such as, If we were a car what car would we be, what drink would we be, what movie would we be allows the development of the brand values. This was an impressive deliverable with a flow through into multiple logo and colour way options focussed on the discovery phase. It is so good we framed the mood board and have it on our wall.
When the logo and colour way was agreed the next real world deliverable was the brand guidelines. A fundamental document that informs all marketing and presentation materials. The brand guidelines set out the colours, fonts and imagery for the brand. To reflect the brand we needed photographs that reflected who we are. The use of stock images would not fit the bill. They worked with us and we hand a photography session. They then professionally rendered the images into what is now the impressive brand photographs used on the site and in our materials.
The documents, letter heads and power point presentations all need to have a consistent and cohesive feel. They created these with an eye on design.
We continue to work with them on unique and exciting print and design solutions for our 3 brands and offerings.”

Mandy Taylor

“I first approached Howard and Kathy of Rushfirth Creative in January of this year when I needed a brand identity for a project that I had in mind, that ultimately became Charity Angels. I knew through word of mouth that their level of expertise and quality of their work was second to none, I was not prepared for the level of commitment and dedication to a project that wouldn't earn them a penny, but that they undertook as part of their own charitable aims.
Their professionalism and sheer hard work elevated my original concept to one that is worthy of a national brand with superb quality of illustration and a uniqueness that only they can bring. It has been a pleasure working with Howard and Kathy and I have found true loyal friends in them both. I could not recommend them more highly.”

Jason Costello

Head of Community Fundraising at Forget Me Not Children's Hospice

“I wanted to say that the Rushfirths are fantastic people, they were recommended to me by Paula the Marketing Manager at The Mill Batley as she's had been blown away by the work they carried out for her. It's always good to hear such praise so I checked them out for ourselves. I wasn't disappointed their work fantastic, funky, fresh, full of creativity and passion.
I can honestly say that Kathryn and Howard have help the Children's Hospice increase our brand awareness. Use them you will not be disappointed.”

Danny Matharu

MD at Hillrich

"Howard I 'discussed' the brief for a clothing brand Rushfirth Creative agreed to develop for us via Twitter in what I thought was just the first exploratory session (I was busy at the time so sent it on the fly). 

This can in no way be classed as a tight brief! 

Howard went away and came back with an amazing brand/story/concept simply from getting to know us and 140 characters on Twitter! 

For me, the key aspect of Howard and his company is that he REALLY knows his clients and can hence produce work that is technically and emotively bang on.

Top man, top company, amazing work."

“Rushfirth very kindly and generously created the brand, look and logo for Skill Will. At every step, even though the work was being done pro bono, we felt we were shown the same attention to detail as any client would expect or want. In addition, since thee original work was done Rushfirth has been attentive to help us maintain the look and feel of the brand through leaflet design, business cards, website and more.

We were very fortunate to have Rushfirth working with us on this project.”

Debbie Burke

Director Children's Place Day Nurseries

"The quality of work produced by Rushfirth Creative is indeed exceptional. In these time pressured times they do everything possible to work to our somewhat erratic schedules and still deliver quality products in a timely fashion. We love the new branding and we are thoroughly enjoying rolling it out through all mediums - website next!"

Philip Morris

Director of Bondmor Ltd

“The trip could not have gone better. The new DVD and sales literature were absolutely invaluable. Rushfirth Creative worked tirelessly into the early hours over several days to ensure that we had what we needed for the trip. We could not have asked for more and we can’t thank them enough."

“I have been really impressed with the results that Howard produced on the design projects that I have been lucky enough to work on him with. His concepts were spot on and he turned them around really quickly. On top of that, he's a great bloke and fun to work with. I look forward to working together again soon!”

"When I first started to throw the idea around of my charity event named the "Great Yorkshire Stairclimb", I knew that strong branding would be the backbone to it's success. I first saw Howard's work through the Yorkshire Mafia group for their conference, followed shortly by Geoff Major's North Pole Trek which I sponsored. 

I have to say, I was instantly impressed! 

For our charity event branding, I knew that I needed Howard involved from the start. His enthusiasm, creativity and all round brilliance was something that I needed to pull in. 

From an informal meeting at the start of planning the think tank overspilled with ideas, and consistently delivered extraordinary results. The overall feel to the branding was beyond expectations, something that I have grown accustomed to with the work at Rushfirth Creative, and they have continued to support the event at every opportunity. 

I would have zero hesitation in recommending them to others, and to this day I have done just that on many occasions.
You need the Rushfirth team in your businesses!"

Allison Whitmarsh

Founder and Managing Director of Propermaid

“Rushfirth Creative truly understand packaging design and can save you time, reduce stress and ultimately save money. I look forward to working with them on our next project.”

John Steel

Owner at John Steel Photography

“I hired Howard to design me some flyers. I have used lots of graphic designers in the past who have provided poor results. It was so easy dealing with Rushfirth Creative. They understood the brief straight away. Nailed the design straight away and made sure all the I's were dotted and the t's were crossed.
Most importantly I required my design to be printed perfectly. Howard and Rushfirth Creative ensured this happened by asking the printers to do some test prints which enabled me to get the perfect colour match.
It was a pleasure working with Howard and Rushfirth Creative and I certainly would recommend him and he will be doing all my design and print from now on. Cracking results.”

Andrew Sloman

Batley & Dewsbury Towns' Manager

"We recently sent out a brief for materials to promote our popular annual Dewsbury on Sea event to local graphic design companies. Rushfirth Creative really came up with the goods with a series of beautifully eye catching, colourful and inventive designs harking back to the golden age of the British seaside resort. The leaflets, posters and banners have been warmly received throughout the town and have drawn much praise. We can't fault Rushfirth Creative for their customer service. They have remained attentive and have worked with us closely throughout the design and print phases to make sure the final result is of the highest quality."

Andy Brogden

Physiotherapist at Modern Physio

"Following a LinkedIn search for the the best design team to work with I chose to work with Rushfirth Creative, giving them an unusual design brief, ‘to combine Mods with Physiotherapy’. Howard and Kathy got to the root of my inspiration and came up with an amazing mood board to focus my thoughts.
Together they created an amazing geometric design which covered all forms of advertising including my Facebook and Twitter logo, business card, flyer and press advert.
I would like to thank the LinkedIn people who recommended Rushfirth Creative - they are indeed great designers, but also great people who go beyond their necessary role to ensure a complete and hassle-free service."

Rita Farrar

"Just to let you know that the banner looks fabulous. We have had some really great feedback from it. Thanks again for your patience and support in it's production. Your advice was invaluable and we will not hesitate in using your company for all of our future promotions. Thanks again."

Linda Crayton

"Marketing to the local school community is difficult and needs to be friendly and informative. Rushfirth Creative has enabled me to produce publicity material that really encourages individuals to contact me, and this is evidenced by the massive increase in numbers of learners and volunteers now using ETC.
A big thank you to the friendly and efficient staff at Rushfirth Creative."

Rebecca Dent

"Rushfirth Creative have been instrumental in the publicity of Dewsbury Canal Festival by kindly providing all the pre-event publicity and branding. Not only did they give excellent customer service, their input into the publicity for the event helped make the event the success it was. The Rushfirth team were an absolute pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with them on future projects."
