Mendip District Council had Tourism & Heritage maps for Shepton Mallet designed by The Design Hive. The tender was won by The Design Hive due to their clarity of designs and appeal of earlier interpretive map panels created for other Council’s. The colours and design had an instant attraction with the committee that commissioned the work. Their work was of an excellent standard as was their patience during the numerous drafts – the final result has been greatly appreciated by the town and tourists with numerous favourable comments.

Eat Festivals re-brand: Mel worked quickly on a wide-ranging brief to produce two logos that nailed our expectations. We need an over-arching brand and a logo that could be adapted for each event. She incorporated our wish list, dream list and “shoot for the moon list.” We have received consistently positive feedback on our new identity and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to others.

We have been working with The Design Hive since 2000, and have always found them reliable, on budget, honest and on time. They have never missed a deadline in five years. The Design Hive have been with us from the start, looking after all our graphic design work and our website. We now own 10 holiday parks throughout Somerset, and require a huge range of design work, on a weekly basis. The Design Hive are very passionate and share our excitement when a new project comes along. We usually provide some key points, but allow The Design Hive to use their imagination.
We have always been impressed with the level of design work produced. They always come up with a very high end product, which is appealing to our target market. They have established a strong brand throughout all our parks and that brand is recognised throughout Somerset and across the UK.
The Design Hive are great at listening and working closely with us to achieve the right outcome. They don’t just have a set style like many designers, they adapt the design and style to the needs of the customer.
We’ve worked on many projects with The Design Hive. Brochures, leaflets, flyers, map illustrations, signage, website work, business stationery, welcome packs, posters, and much more.
We would highly recommend their services. We have a fantastic working relationship with The Design Hive and they have always gone above and beyond what is required to complete a job.

New You Laser Lipo – You saved my business!! I came to the design hive after a well known company in Taunton took over a month just to look at my spec for a logo and flyers.

I phoned Mel and after a detailed consultation (with questions I hadn’t even considered yet!) she came back to me within 2 days with the perfect logo, another 2 days and she had drawn up flyers and posters ready for print, they captured all aspects of my business and I couldn’t have asked for a more professional or competitive package.

Melanie at The Design Hive completely redesigned the company website in 2001, and has been adding to it and updating it on a regular basis since. They have also created and printed promotional materials in the way of brochures, leaflets, folders and signage.

Their interpretation of our company and its ethos is completely projected through the different aspects of our website, promotional material and signage. All work carried out has been done to agreed time scales and budgets. I would not hesitate to recommend The Design Hive to carry out any type of media or promotional work and can confirm that their ideas and designs are modern with a fresh approach.

The Design Hive have worked with us on several projects over recent months including logo design, corporate branded stationery & our new website. For each of our projects, The Design Hive have listened to our requests and injected their own creative touch with the final results far exceeding our expectations. They have always been helpful and willing to go the extra mile to satisfy our needs. The Design Hive look after the search engine optimisation for our new website and we are already reaping the rewards from increased enquires.

I have been working with The Design Hive for over 10 years now. During this time they have designed a wide selection of work for me including price lists, appointment cards, vouchers and our shop sign. I have always been delighted with the work and no end of ideas for the job in hand and have found their enthusiasm and dedication refreshing. I will definitely continue to use The Design Hive and will also recommend them as they are so competively priced. No matter what the job they always put their heart and soul in to it.

The Design Hive have been designing signage and interpretation panels with us for over four years and we find their approach fresh, contemporary and dare I say it very competitively priced! The Design Hive can adapt with ease to a wide variety of challenges we throw at them from conceptual design and ideology, project management right through to end product installations. They come highly recommended and we hope to keep working with them in the future.

We have been working with Melanie at The Design Hive for many years now. From highly professional looking brochures and stationery to signage and regular client newsletters, we have found the quality of design and print excellent. We would have no hesitation in recommending The Design Hive to other organisations.
