My experience of working with Ali has only ever been a positive one. She is friendly, patient and always listens to our needs. She provides her creative ideas and suggested approaches to meet the brief in a clear and straight forward manner, always producing high quality work and meeting requested deadlines. I would heartily recommend working with Ali.

Alisons interpretation of my artwork and branding requests and providing examples of how our customers should present themselves, has always been fantastic and the catalyst for many creative successes for adverts placed by our valued customers. The different examples she has produced, has brought the customers advertising to life and been pivotal in the recruitment successes our customers have enjoyed. Alison has always met and on many occasions, exceeded the tight timescales I have presented to her, which has been invaluable each and every time.

I worked with Alison Cooley for many years in publishing. During this time, I always found her extremely helpful, thoughtful and very dedicated. She would always be pushing herself and her colleagues to produce the best quality designs for her clients and would not settle for second best. This is an admirable quality that can be lacking in this era. Alison was at the forefront of many design initiatives introduced during my time and these were very well received by our clients. What they also liked was Alison’s personal touch and her concern that the client was happy with both the design and the service they got from her. I would thoroughly recommend Alison for both her quality of work and that she is a lovely person to work with. In my opinion these combinations will produce success.

Ali was a bastion of knowledagable, calm in my muddle of ideas. She helped me come up with a logo that said all the things I wanted to say.

After years of struggling to get designers to reach into my brain and understand what I wanted my logo to represent, I met Ali and within what felt like moments she had completely rebranded my business growth club for me. It is now totally ‘on brand’ and I am really happy – Ali now does all my branding work. Having a modern logo which reflects my brand has enabled me to reposition Babble – Business Growth Club in this competitive market space.

I was introduced to Alison through a colleague and Alison kindly offered her time free of charge to support the charity in designing a new logo. Our image needed a total overhaul, to be more representative of what we do. Alison, after a couple of conversations about the charity went away and came back with an idea that was completely different to what we already had. She had designed a logo that was clean, simple and extremely striking and summed up the work of FND Dimensions perfectly. The logo was a huge hit with everyone who saw it and we have not received one negative comment from over 1700 members and partner organisations, in fact the compliments have flowed.
Alison’s professional, dynamic and artistic flare would be a great addition to anyone looking to have something designed that represented them on a personal and business level. Alison manages to get under the skin of what her customers want/need and come up with designs that reflect the right image and message for the target audience. Being taught design skills is one thing, but to bring the talent Alison does, highlights her natural affinity for her subject and clients requirements.
I would not hesitate to work with Alison again, indeed, she is now rewriting and producing all or written documentation and has had significant design input to the structure and layout of our new website. I am also delighted that Alison, who has become such an integral part of the charity has also joined the board of trustees, adding a new level of commitment and expertise to our strengths, with a conscientious, dedicated and committed work ethic.
I wish her well with all her professional development and business growth, she will undoubtedly prove to be an asset with any client who engages with the services she offers.
Steve Webster – FND Dimensions, Founder/CEO
Over the years Alison has shown herself to be a very personable professional who wants as detailed a brief as possible in order to deliver the right product. Even in our peak season, she delivers on time and in budget, and also follows up on the response from the client and the success of the job adverts. She is also proactive in offering her services to my team and understands the needs of the clients given her extensive experience in recruitment marketing design in the education sector.

Ali provided support with a rebrand and logo update. She is so knowledgeable and passionate and has a creative edge which is unparalleled. She took the time to really get a feel for my business and my brand and I was thrilled with the result. I cannot recommend her enough.
