Delivery of finished product is equally quick and the final bill is always within our pre-agreed budget. I don’t hesitate to recommend Darren and DL Design to anyone who asks for my thoughts on the subject.”

"DL Design and Darren Guiheen has completed various assignments for us, the latest being a supply of business cards. Polite and efficient, Darren provided details of layout and content ready for agreement and delivered the cards with five days which included a weekend. I would really recommend talking to him about what you need. His input is invaluable."

Adrian Stohr
Black Tie and Posh Frocks Charity Ball - September 2017
"Well what can I say about a company of true spirited professionalism of quality at their finest? It’s with great honour I write this testimonial for DL Design who last year we commissioned as a sponsor to create the branding for our annual Charity Ball. 

As a result of their branding the Ball, we sold nearly all our tickets faster than any other year with an outstanding £7000 raised on the night for our charity. When I approached DL Design again this year they were more than happy to step in.

Darren’s idea about keeping the branding similar but creating a logo style for the next event was a winner - just what I was hoping he would come up with and that’s what Darren is all about, his creativity just flows to perfection with the need of making our next Ball an even bigger success, thank you Darren for everything."

Edmund Magdziarek

Zach Isom
Isom Brothers - July 2017
"My Brother and I used this company to design us some Band Business Cards, not only did we find them extremely cost effective, but we were kept in constant contact as to the current status of the cards and when they would be ready for collection. The cards themselves were both made and delivered to us in a very professional manner. We both would highly recommend this company. Many Thanks. Isom Brothers."
