Stella and Victoria quickly came up with a concept for the Folkestone Book Festival decorations and worked to a very tight deadline. Their initial ideas encompassed the brief and at all stages there was excellent communication and we worked together to problem solve within the limitations of the space and budget. The finished outcome transformed the space beautifully and was well received by our audiences. It was a complete pleasure to work with Salt.

Most designers are so preoccupied with what it looks like, they tend to ignore what it is actually communicating. Salt think as well as design, which helps immensely when you are working with a brand concept instead of a logo and trying to develop it visually.
Salt Design has worked with my agency for a number of years and were instrumental in helping create our corporate visual identity and applying that to all our communication vehicles, from our website to our headed stationery. They are great at coming up with ideas, and then going on to execute them effectively and professionally. In addition the whole process ran smoothly, and from our (the client) perspective, effortlessly.
I would recommend Salt Design to anyone wanting a distinctive and elegant branding look for their company or product.
As a newly emerging artist I recognised the importance of getting the branding right for my website and promotional material. Salt design were able to provide the expertise to create exactly what I had hoped for in terms of identity styling and professional service.

I am a driving instructor and wanted to reach a further audience so decided that I would like to have my own website. I was introduced to Salt by a friend. So I got in touch with them via e-mail contact.
Obviously I had concerns but these were laid to rest once I had made contact with Stella of Salt. On first contact I was given a costing for the website and a time scale of when the website would be up and running. I found the costing very reasonable and decided to go ahead with the work.
From the outset I was guided through each stage; drafts were sent for my approval; I found the research that was done by Salt was very thorough and I was kept in touch at every step of the process. I was guided by them as to what photographs/images would look best and even had a photoshoot.
I must admit I did not realise how much work was involved in setting up the website and have to say that I would never have been able to have had such a professional finish had I done it myself. I obviously looked at other websites and can now understand why you instruct a professional. The finish is of such a high quality which represents my driving school.
Even once the website was up and running the after care I have received from Salt is excellent. I have had occasion to contact them for help and guidance and have found them only too willing to help.
I would thoroughly recommend Salt and would like to thank them for all the help and assistance I have received and would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending their services to other people who are contemplating having their own website.

I approached Salt to assist in developing a typography style to compliment our illustrated paper cut wedding invitation range. My design experience is within surface pattern and product development so when I decided to launch a range of wedding stationery I knew I would need guidance with the text elements of the range. I have known Stella for a long time and felt comfortable that she would understand my style.
My brief was quite loose, to produce two styles, one simple and clean using a San serif font, and one with a vintage feel with a modern twist. Salt shared lots of inspiration with me which we discussed before pinning down the brief.
For me it was very much a team experience, working together and sharing ideas. Salt have also acted very much as a mentor, more recently encouraging and guiding me in developing a typographic style myself.
Their experience and understanding of branding and design is excellent. They work with you, and take the time to understand your brand needs, whilst at the same time being proactive in suggesting innovative new ideas.

Thank you very much to Salt for their brilliant work. They have done a fantastic job combining me and my photography under one distinct brand. If you are thinking of taking your brand to the next level, try them!
