“We have used Hanna’s design services at the ISM for a number of years from large projects such as our annual Handbook to smaller projects such as leaflets, adverts and banners. Hanna is a joy to work with; she is able to interpret our project briefs to bring to life the designs that we envisaged and her work is of a high standard. She is very accommodating, able to work to our changing schedule, and has always delivered the final print or web ready files on time; which is why we repeatedly use her services!”
