What Client’s Say

I have had the pleasure of working with Ian and HB Creativity for many years. Together we have collaborated on many projects, from enhancing Kingston Town Centre to developing many Business Improvement Districts around the country and our own British BIDs.

HB Creativity have consistently delivered on time and within budget. When setting up my business Partnership Solutions I would only work with HB creativity to build our design style for ourselves and our clients. Ian is an expert in Graphic and web design. He has evolved the design and style in line with modern technology and our growing business. He maintains excellent standards of customer service and often goes above and beyond to help us. I am constantly impressed by the service and design work they deliver. I would recommend HB Creativity to all business’s large or small.

I’ve worked with Ian on many different projects from websites, to electronic invites, to designed and printed brochures. The great thing about the way he works is that he really understands the type of ‘look’ and finished product required from the client and sets out his suggestions accordingly. He delivers on time and to budget and is a really friendly person to work with. I highly recommend him!

The inspiration behind HB

HB is headed up by myself, Ian Browne, a strategic, multi-disciplined graphic designer and art director, with more than 20 years’ experience. I was born in Cornwall, but spent my early years traveling the world experiencing different cultures. I’ve an honours degree in graphic design and have clocked up a wealth of skills and experience working in award-winning design studios and world-renowned agencies. This includes a key role at Hardwerken Design, an agency at the forefront of Dutch advertising and design, where I earned my stripes on clients such as Royal Dutch PTT Telecom, ABV, Rotterdam Theatre, and Dutch Breweries.

 

Solutions for all shapes and sizes

HB works with every size of business. Each project is treated individually and given the same care and attention, no matter how big or small your brand. In the past we’ve designed and developed graphics, advertising, and user-friendly web and mobile solutions for a wide variety of clients, such as blue chip companies, small businesses, not-for-profit organizations, Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), entrepreneurs and design agencies.

Some of our small clients only require a small amount of input from us. Whilst larger organisations come to us to solve more complex briefs, such as graphics databases, e-commerce, intranets or microsites. We value all of our clients in exactly the same way. Whatever your budget, HB will present you with the best quality solutions.

HB : Creativity across the board

 

Our work with you

When you work with HB, you can be sure your brief will be rewarded with innovative solutions, delivered on time and within budget. How we do this is simple: we work closely with you at every stage of your project.

• First, we’ll talk about creating a design concept, budget and deadlines, keeping everything transparent, so that there are no misunderstandings or conceptions.

• Next, we’ll craft a design idea that will become a talking point among your competitors and create a buzz among your customers. You can be sure, your ideas and thoughts will be heard throughout this process, so that you get the best solution possible.

• We’ll also project manage everything, giving you a crystal clear idea of what you’ll get, where, when and how. And of course, your input is more than welcome at every stage of the process.

For every individual project, I’ll personally pick the right creative specialists to see it through. We will then work together collaboratively; you become part of us, and we’ll mutually enhance the reputation and perception of your businesses.
