What gets me out of bed in the morning is my clients’ success.
I don‘t work for praise, but it’s nice when it comes.
Tim does “grown up” work. He takes a mature approach to a brief, teasing out the nuances of product, customer, market, desired response and then returns a measured, proportionate, holistic piece of work that is utterly focussed on the target results. He gets under your skin, lives and breathes your brand, and his work is therefore in harmony with the brand even if it’s new and exciting. His talent is in subtleties that deliver results. And his immense practical experience is a great bonus. When all is said though, investing in good design makes sense when it makes a difference. Tim’s work gets results and adds real value to a brand.
P. WHILE, MARKETING DIRECTOR
Working with Tim has been a very positive experience. This mild mannered man is clearly an expert in his field and we have benefited enormously from his creative skills. My projects feel safe in his hands. However what compels me to recommend Tim is his attitude. He listens well, offers up great and relevant ideas and then puts in the hours to meet the deadlines. A joy to work with.
R. LAWRENCE, HEAD OF MARKETING
Tim is an amazing coach for start-up businesses. He really listens and asks delving questions to be able to help a new business. This gives him the ability to come up with brand ideas that really fit the business and the people. His creative skills are epic and he has a way of bringing out others creativity.
C. WEBBER, BUSINESS START-UP / INCUBATOR MANAGER
I worked with Tim on the Dr Who project and he was the ultimate professional. There had to be a balance between our brand and that of the BBC’s and Tim achieved this brilliantly in the creative. He brought some great ideas to the table and was the constant source of finding ways to work around any challenges. Deadlines were tight on many occasions and Tim delivered to these without any problems. He provides a really high level of service, is reliable and trustworthy. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Tim.
S. MATTHEWS, PROJECT MANAGER
Tim is a real pleasure to work with. He consistently provides us with great marketing ideas and products of the highest quality and we wouldn’t have had such a successful year without his assistance.
S. MCKIE, MANAGER
Civic Trust Cymru’s commitment to design quality is reflected in the choice of Tim Masters to deliver a graphic design solution that would give the Trust a unique and recognisable identity to support its re-branding. The Trustees were impressed with Tim’s understanding of a detailed brief that was developed with him prior to the delivery of what they believe to be a highly successful visual image that reflects the personality of Civic Trust Cymru. In doing so, Tim dealt successfully with the challenge of ensuring parity for the Welsh and English languages and demonstrated an awareness of the need to ensure that technical requirements for reproduction of the image could be maintained possible without additional expense.
S. EVANS, VICE CHAIR
In a business sector that is cluttered up with images of plants, bees and rolling landscapes, I wanted something different, to help me stand out and reflect my way of doing things. As soon as I saw what Tim had in mind for me, I knew it was exactly right. It made me smile because it perfectly sums up that my service ‘does exactly what it says on the tin’.
J. MASTERS, LANDSCAPE GARDENER
I thought I should write and thank you for the high standard of care and design you have put in. At each stage you gave time to listen to and discuss with me the best way to format our corporate image and sell our products. Most importantly deadlines were met. It has been unanimously well received and our Dutch MD has been proudly singing its praises. I really enjoyed working with you and look forward to discussing ideas for the future.
J. CORNISH, DESIGN & MARKETING MANAGER
Tim Masters has done work for me, my colleagues and partners in the health field for at least seven years now. His work is of an exceptionally high standard. He always strives for perfection in quality of presentation and effectiveness of communication. His creative ability has turned many a boring health message into a product that the public has actually wanted to read!
J. OSMOND, PUBLIC HEALTH WALES
Tim provides a great service. His work is creative where required and to brief where relevant. Tim is also extremely responsive to demanding requests and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him.
L. HURST, ASSOCIATE BRAND DIRECTOR
Tim is a consummate professional and an absolute gentleman and I thoroughly enjoy working alongside him. He has fantastic ideas but also sees them through in a way that speaks quality throughout everything he produces.
C. BARNES, HEAD OF GLOBAL SALES & MARKETING
I have worked with Tim on a number of occasions, mostly during my time as Marketing Manager at the Leadership Trust. Tim developed many different marketing materials for me, including the organisation’s main annual sales brochure. He also worked with me to develop a new brand for the Trust and a set of style guidelines to ensure the successful implementation of the ‘new look’. Tim is a fantastic person to work with. He is creative and enthusiastic and totally reliable. He takes the time to find out about his clients’ business and to develop intelligent solutions.
J. BAILEY, MARCOMS & PR CONSULTANT
Following recommendation from a business associate I approached Tim Masters with a rebranding project for my couture millinery business. From the outset I was really impressed with how Tim listened and how quickly he grasped a clear understanding of my business with the high quality, elegant & stylish image I wanted to convey. The whole rebranding process has been illuminating and extremely enjoyable from the initial conversation right through to project finish. Tim is a passionate and open-minded designer. His instinctual creativity combined with his care, attention to detail and professionalism offer a truly outstanding service. I am delighted with the work that’s been done and am really proud of my new brand design.
E. MATTHEWS, COUTURE MILLINER
I have known Tim for a couple of years now and when I needed external design work he was the only person I considered. Tim is a thoughtful, innovative and vastly experienced designer with a fantastic eye for detail. The work he did for us was great but I have seen lots of his other work and have been impressed with everything. Seek Tim out, you won’t regret it and ask him to show you the Three Hoes!
P. TERRETT, CHIEF OPERATIONS OFFICER
My relationship with Tim Masters has been totally professional at all times, despite sharing a positive work ethic of putting in the hours to get the job done. Tim has remained totally unflappable and knowledgeable throughout the time that I have worked with him. Tim continues to surprise me in the outputs that he produces, and I bow to his branding experience, knowing that everything he creates has come from the inside out. Tim and Masters Design & Branding are producing designs that have clearly been thought through in extreme detail and are astounding every time. In addition, what I like about Tim is that we’re on the same wave-length, and both being creatives, its easy to talk to him. I’d recommend Tim and Masters Design & Branding to any business that needs rejuvenation or re-awakening of their brand, or just wants to start again. Tim will deliver what you need in the timescale you want to show off your business to be the best it can.
L. WALDER, SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGIST
Tim Masters was recommended to me by an architect friend. Tim began by asking me in-depth questions and studying other professionals and consultancies in my field. He then patiently took me through the whole process of differentiation. In doing so, he created a new identity which is unique, distinctive and professional. Tim has undoubtedly helped to establish Holland Heritage.
E. HOLLAND, MANAGING DIRECTOR
Tim has undertaken a range of design projects for me, all of which he has carried out with the utmost care and attention to detail. Tim invests time in thinking a brief through thoroughly, so when the work is received, it is very close to the completed piece. Tim is good to work with collaboratively as well as a supplier and I would not hesitate to recommend him for a wide range of work from concepts through to design and production
J. BUTTERY, BUSINESS CONSULTANT & COACH
I just had to let you know how pleased we are with the work you’ve done for us. Throughout the whole process I can find nothing to fault, and can honestly say that no designer I have worked with previously has ever made such a creative contribution to our business.
A. DONOVAN, MARKETING MANAGER
This looks superb. I hope that you are as pleased as I am that the result is as professional and sharp as we anticipated.
A. SACHS, MANAGING DIRECTOR
Working with Tim is a very positive experience. It is excellent to work with someone who we feel understands us more deeply; beyond just the brief and more like a partner. Good work – much appreciated.
R. NOBLE, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Tim undertakes a detailed analysis of the business on which a design brief has been given and really understands what is required. His work is highly creative and innovative. The total exceeds the sum of the parts!
G. TUDHOPE, MANAGING DIRECTOR
As architects image is all important and we wanted to work with someone who was equally passionate about getting the look of things right. Masters Design have an eye for detail second to none and it has been a real pleasure to work with them repeatedly over many years as our website has evolved and our business grown under their guidance.
D. BENBOW, DIRECTOR
I worked with Tim and his team on the Green Sea project – a joint venture between the Welsh Tourist Board, Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water and 41 other organisations and councils in Wales. Tim developed the unique brand identity which perfectly captured the essence of the project. I found Tim highly innovative in his thinking and very good to work with too.
M. WADLEY, PROJECT MANAGER
Tim has done a fantastic job – he and his team captured the style and essence of the project perfectly. The aim was to create a “Masterpiece” as a medal to showcase the craftsmanship, history and artistry of the Royal Mint, and the accompanying booklet had to fit into this to enhance the medal. Tim brought a new dimension to the topic of George and the Dragon and captured the tradition and craftsmanship of the medal perfectly. It has been a pleasure working with him on this, and other projects, especially as this one has been topped by a sell-out performance.
S. STOLL, PROJECT MANAGER
I recently had a very urgent job for a charity I am a trustee of that needed some good design work. Enter Tim. Everything completed on time, with inventive and eye-catching design, good humour whilst doing it and an overall cracking result. What more could you ask?
P. MAYNARD, TRUSTEE
Earlier this year I was seeking help re-branding my company. Tim took considerable time to get into my head and find out exactly what I did, seeking to express this in terms of beneficial outcomes for the client. The light bulb moment was Tim’s observation that my company name ‘Open Ground’ could have a powerful meaning in its own right and be far more than just a vaguely intriguing label. The idea that my management and leadership development could help clients see the wood for the trees, where the way ahead was clear and the obstacles removed, was sheer genius on Tim’s part.
A. SCOWCROFT, MANAGING DIRECTOR
Tim is knowledgeable and thoughtful about his branding and marketing skills. This approach gives him serious weight in his industry and sets him above the casual marketing people we all meet. He has case histories demonstrating real success in lifting the fortunes of businesses and in my view any business can have confidence in his ability.
B. SHEPHERD, BUSINESS GROWTH CONSULTANT
Thank you for doing the design and identity work for our association. We are all very excited about the project and look forward to it being a great success . . . if it is, then that will be due in no small part to the design.
REV. A. SLADE, DIOCESE OF GLOUCESTER
Tim Masters designed our logo twenty five years ago and it is still a masterpiece. He also designed an office brochure which looks as good today as it did all those years ago. More recently Tim has designed a manifesto for us. The result is of a quality that makes it really stand out. His artistic skills and professional attitude makes it a pleasure to work with him.
J. FRECKNALL, DIRECTOR
Our marketing materials are now ready . . . they really do look splendid. All the compliments to you for the quality of design.
