What Do You Get?
Creative Direction
As a project leader, I take responsibility for the project and timelines and ensure everything for the project runs smoothly from start to finish.
Proven Design Process
Over 13 years in the making, my specially developed design process ensures I bring innovative, original and exciting ideas and solutions to every project.
Collaboration
I believe that collaboration and communication are key to the success of a project. I’m keen to learn all I can about a project and often take an intimate approach when designing brands, involving the client as much as they are happy with.
Full Attention
To ensure I can provide each client with my best services, I typically only work on one project at a time. This allows me to give each client my full attention and maintain work to high standards.
Bespoke Solutions
I work hard to understand each client's individual needs and subject matter to ensure I deliver deliberate, meaningful and crafted creative solutions that satisfy these needs.
High Standard
My aim for each project is to do my best work, and I do so by not only bringing my expertise from my many years of experience, but also continually learning and improving on my technique and design process.

Testimonials
"We’ve had Gareth into work with us at ITV Creative a few times over the years. Gareth is an effective member of any creative team and collaborates well with other members to generate fresh design solutions and see them through to completion.

In 2018 between June to August, we bought Gareth back to work on a channel brand. We were very happy with the contribution Gareth brought to the project and the quality of his work.We would be happy to work with Gareth again in the future."
“Gareth came to Hiveworks in March/April of 2019 to help us specifically with creating the branding for a completely new application we were designing for a fintech client.

The brief was completely open, which meant that Gareth had to do a bit of work to create his own brief to inform his work. He did a great job of assembling all of the information he needed and then proceeded on a very systematic process to examine potential names and eventually brand directions for the application.

I was very impressed by the quality of his work and our client was very pleased with the overall brand direction.”
"Gareth created Lena Maye’s product labels, then our branding and lastly the Lena Maye website, all of which I am very happy with. In addition, I constantly receive compliments from customers about how stunning and amazing the packaging, branding and website is.

Communication is excellent with Gareth and he does take the time to understand and listen to your views whilst incorporating your ideas into the project, he also brings his expertise to improve matters, whilst helping you understand the reasons behind his ideas as an expert in his field."
