“Jo Oakes has been working with us here at Personality Ltd for the past 5 years as a freelance designer. Jo has always taken a great interest in the work that she has carried out and is very keen to interpret what we are looking for. Jo puts a great deal of time and effort into what she does and is interested to see the finished product and also to see how the market place accepts the designs. Jo is extremely professional in the approach to her designing and will always undertake to give a clear idea of the length of time it will take. I certainly have no hesitation in recommending Jo.”

“We started working with Sue in January of this year and were immediately struck by her enthusiasm. Sue set about our task quickly and professionally and produced designs that closely followed our brief but with the added flair expected of a trained designer. We quickly had our approved designs backed up by very detailed spec sheets for the factories - all on time and on budget - perfect”
