What my clients say…

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Carl on Spare Parts Sandbach 2021, in which he illustrated and designed our children’s story book Chuck the Trucker.
Carl is super organised, extremely quick to respond and nothing is ever too much trouble. He is an absolutely brilliant illustrator, the level of detail & quality he put into the work was outstanding. He has been a huge part of this project & has had a real positive impact on everyone in the team, including our Young Producers.
Thank you so much for all your hard work Carl, and I hope to work with you again in future!
Emily Edwards, Minerva Arts


We were looking for some striking imagery for a show stand at an international show at London Excel. Carl was recommended to us and it was clear from the first meeting that he is very creative and took our initial thoughts for the stand and developed them into some great designs. His idea to create an engineering drawing for the London skyline, where our products are installed, was inspired and had a fantastic impact at the show……as commented on by many of our customers.

If we have any future such requirements, Carl will be our first port of call. Thanks Carl!

Folded Business Card

I was looking for a logo for the business and thought I had it nailed in my mind until I spoke to Carl. He took the time to listen to what I was trying to achieve with the business and the ‘match’ in branding across different platforms. He went the extra mile straightaway and provided me with additional options for me to consider, just as a comparison initially, to what I had described to him.  I now look back on that initial conversation and cringe at my  ‘amateur hour’ in the design world! But, this is quickly followed with genuine appreciation that Carl clearly cared as much as I did and wanted to do the best job possible. As soon as I saw Carl’s alternatives you could just tell straightaway that his intuitive ‘eye’ took it to that subtle level of presentation that showed it had actually been ‘designed’ with some thought.

I then knew I had to go back to Carl for the business cards. But, I have ended up with something a lot more than that.  With Carl’s involvement it has actually become one of my key sales and marketing ‘tools’.  It is unique, stylish and builds on the brand and business values. It’s a business that cares about every aspect of what it delivers, even down to the business card. I also think its pretty cool!

I highly recommend Carl to any other business owner.

Firefly Designs helped us create a poster for a local event we wanted to promote locally. With a very brief specification, they created a fantastic poster very quickly.
We were able to request changes and adjustments, which were made immediately. I’d have no hesitation recommending Firefly Design Services.

Neon Freight Postcard/Flyer 2018

I am more than happy to recommend Carl at Firefly Designs. The work for our new company logo was undertaken extremely quickly and thoroughly. You could tell that he has been a long time in the business as he gave me every single format back, many of which I had no idea of!
Ian Mallon – CEO, Neon Freight

Carl delivered some great character logos for me. He was very easy to work with and understood the brief really well turning the logos around quickly and to a very high quality. I would highly recommend him and his work.

I recently asked Carl from Firefly Design Services to design some flyers for me at very short notice! Not only did he meet the deadline, the flyers were designed professionally and looked amazing. Carl’s attention to detail is second to none. I would definitely use him again and would recommend him to anyone who wants a fast, efficient, quality service for any flyers, business cards etc.
The feedback on the flyers was also brilliant. Thank you again.

The Sugared Thistle Logo

Fantastic service! Couldn’t be happier with my new business logo, Carl got the brief spot on.
Would highly recommend!
Claire Corbett – The Sugared Thistle Cake Company

I recently used Firefly Design Services for a charity event that I was organizing, I approached Carl and asked if he could design me a pull-up banner with sponsorship logos on. To say we were happy with the outcome was an understatement. From start to finish the experience of working with Carl was a pleasure, in contact regularly, made sure the logos appeared very prominently on the banner and it was produced and designed to a very high standard and presented wonderfully.

I will for sure be using Firefly Design Services in the future for numerous design project requirements that I need and I would definitely recommend using Firefly Design Services to anyone who is looking for any form of design work that needs to be done. Great job Carl.

I am so pleased with Lilly’s picture [cat pet portrait]. You have really captured her. I was impressed with your manner when you came to the house to photograph Lilly and would recommend you to anyone thinking of going ahead with having a pet portrait.
