“Sarah has done nearly all our graphic design work since early 2006. She is patience by name and patient by nature! Totally committed and goes the extra mile all the time. I cant recommend her highly enough. Anne Wilkinson Managing Director Executive Playground”

Anne Wilkinson, Executive Playground

“I LOVE working with Sarah. She always “gets” me and represents that in her creative work. She is efficient, fast and detail orientated, 100% reliable. Sarah is one of my elite team of trusted outsourcers.”

Judith Morgan, Business Coach

“I recommend Sarah to folk whenever I get the chance – her work is great, she’s quick, understands the brief immediately, gets it back to you when she says she will, doesn’t complain when you hassle her with alterations, and charges far less than she should. Just great really.”

Bryan Beattie, Creative Services

“Sarah somehow took my garbled brief and made it into exactly what I wanted but didn’t know I did! I found her to be extremely quick, helpful, intuitive and resourceful. Sarah is a delight to work with and on top of her excellent knowlege and ability, knows how to pull out from the client what they are looking for.”

Jackie Walker, Walker Practitioners

“I have found Sarah to be very sharp, translating my rantings and scribbles into a wonderful design, normally at first draft. She is almost telepathic and very, very, quick to turn round a range of design options. I have no problem recommending her to others and consider her a valuable part of my team.”

Jason Hulott, Internet Marketing Coach, Speedie Consultants

“I approached Sarah to redesign the layout of my website and come up with some more professional looking images. I didn’t know what to expect and I was delighted with the end result. So pleased that I have recommended her services to my own clients and have been back for more design work since. In fact, I also asked Sarah to produce a design for something non work related and she excelled there too. If you want quality design work that is delivered on time, targeted to your requirements and produced by an easy going, personable designer who LISTENS to what you want, you won’t go wrong with Sarah Patience and Saronyx Design.”

Craig Wright, Straygoat Copywriting

“Sarah has a wonderful knack for really listening to a brief and transforming initial ideas into brilliant designs. As an artist myself, it’s vital that I work with a designer who truly understands the importance of a website’s visual impact and I have not been disappointed. Sarah has a good eye and is great at listening to what is required and getting the final design ‘just so’. The website has had a very positive effect on my business and clients have been most impressed by the look of it. I wholeheartedly recommend Sarah as a designer.”

David Lewis, Cartoonist and Caricaturist

“I have been truly delighted with Sarah’s designs and by her calm, efficient and prompt attention to detail. The finished website is stunning and just as I imagined it. At every stage of the process, Sarah was encouraging and responsive. Her ideas were always spot-on and she seemed to instinctively understand what I needed from every step of the process. Thanks Sarah for a brilliant job!”

Jacqui Lofthouse, Author and Writing Coach

“You have been properly patient and remained bright and positive and held my hand through all my techy growing pains. Your “I’m not happy till you’re happy ” policy has been so reassuring. I’ve worked with designers before who charge many times more and will grudgingly make an amendment or two at a push.

Your technical handholding went above and beyond the call of duty and without it my blog simply would not exist.
I’m absolutely delighted with how it all looks and am looking forward to more to come.”

Pauline Esson, The Practical Soul

“Sarah is great to work with – patient, insightful and an extremely talented designer. She provided me with superb customer service, often at short notice, and has a knack of knowing what I want from a design perspective even if I don’t! I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

Jeremy Lazarus, Executive & Performance Coach, Certified NLP Trainer

“I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done and are doing. You have been THE most enjoyable and gracious person I have ever worked with”

Karen Knowler, The Raw Food Coach

“Sarah, I can’t thank you enough! The website you designed has surpassed anything I’d imagined and the professionalism in which you go about your business is extremely impressive. I’ll definitely contact you for future projects. First class!”

Ian McArthur, The Other Foot Soccer School

Dear Sarah, We are really pleased with everything you have done and will definitely be recommending Sarah Patience Design in the future. Once again, thank you so much!”

Louise Cox, Raspberry Bloom

“Having been unable to get hold of my usual graphic designer for a fairly urgent piece of work, I was put onto Sarah by several glowing recommendations from one of my business networks. To say I have been delighted with Sarah’s speed, interpretation of my garbled ideas, eye for design and colour, and patient accommodation of my multiple changes of mind is an understatement. I would recommend to her to absolutely anyone, and will be using her again and again! Also, my experience of working with Sarah is that she understood my thinking (or is in line with it) far more and faster than any other graphic designer I’ve worked with – 4 so far. I love curves vs straight lines, contrasting/bright colours vs boring/corporate colours, funky cartoon-like concepts vs ‘realistic’ graphics, bold simple lines vs sketchy/pencil drawings … Sarah did all that without my even mentioning it. I’ve always had to radically change first concepts or even send them back up til now”

Nikki Highmore Sims, Metaphizz Creative Consultants

“Dear Sarah, I would like to say what a tremendous job you have done in giving the F-Keys website a complete overhaul and facelift on which we can now start to build our business web marketing. Having undertaken the work and then being asked to complete the assignment in record time, due to an unscheduled editorial in our regional newspaper which you accomplished without hesitation. I would like to wish you and your organisation a very prosperous and fortunate future ahead and will endeavour to recommend your services without hesitation or trepidation to anyone seeking your type of services.”

Alex Waterton, F-Keys Ltd

“I loved the logos Sarah did for me – she gave me loads of options and help every step of the way. A great service!”

Janice Elizabeth Small, Simply Cyan Ltd (My first ever paying freelance client, thanks Janice!)
