I specialise in the design of all print and digital marketing collateral and promotional material, logo design, bespoke book, magazine and e-book layout and design.

With each and every project, no matter the scale, I pride myself on extremely personalised service, immersing myself into the nuances of the brief and working with you every step of the way. This is your pride and joy, and to me, there is no greater pleasure than delivering out-of-the-box, creative solutions that make both of us excited for the possibilities.

Whats in a name?

The word 'Piggle' was invented when I was a very little girl, one evening at bed time, my Dad kissing me goodnight said 'Goodnight big girl' and I heard 'Goodnight Piggle'. That name has stuck forever more and it became my nickname my Dad and Mum used for me ever since. My parents belief in me sculpted who I am today and the word Piggle fills me with warmth, love and confidence in myself and my choices.  Piggle Design was an obvious choice of name for my creative outlet and I hope to instil these feelings in my work and in my relationship with my clients.

TESTIMONIALS

I contacted Cath at Piggle Design as I wanted to design a new logo for my Hair and Beauty business and was also interested in Loyalty cards, Business cards and price list.

I have always had separate cards for each but Cath suggested a new style of card that incorporated all three things into one card.

Cath really followed the brief of how I wanted the logo to look and I was really pleased with the finished design.

My cards were amazing and the whole process was great from start to finish.

I would highly recommend Piggle Design and will be using them in the future.

I have worked with Catherine on the covers for five published novels. Catherine is a joy to work with and can be relied on to deliver. She is keen to understand fully her clients' brief and needs, both from a technical and creative perspective and is proactive in providing solutions and suggestions. She is approachable, friendly and encouraging, bringing her own enthusiasm and skills to whatever challenge is presented. Her creative suggestions are sensitive both to the brief's requirements and budget and she communicates well both before and during the job, fostering a collaborative approach. I have no hesitation in recommending Catherine and will be looking to work with her again on my next project.

Cath had clearly listened to the brief I gave her and therefore understood the nature of my business. I was blown away by her first draft, where she used all the key elements we had discussed, so getting to completion took very little time at all. Her use of colour and layout are superb, my flyers and postcards have real impact. I would not hesitate to call her in the future and I highly recommend Cath at Piggledesign to anyone who needs a graphic designer.

Cath did a fabulous job of typesetting one of our client’s novels. The design was clean and elegant, and her service was impeccable. We will definitely use her services again.

Catherine has a combination of the creative skills required to conceptualise a fresh, clean design, the efficiency to meet without fail demanding deadlines and the reliability that gives colleagues and clients complete peace of mind. In addition, Catherine's easy going nature and willingness to go the extra mile make her a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending her to any potential employer.

Dear Cath, I love the layout of my book – you did a really wonderful job, and I’m super-proud to show to people. Thanks for being so great to work with, I loved your attitude from start to finish and hope we get to do it all again one day. Big thanks Todd

Catherine is an amazing graphic designer. She worked with me for a period of 2 – 3 weeks to design issue 7 of Shine ALOUD Magazine. During this time, she used her creative skills and expertise to bring life to sensitive articles within the publication. She was able to make the content both engaging and appealing in order to attract our target audience of young people. Catherine was able to understand my needs as a client, and help me to depict this visually. She remained consistent throughout the job and worked tirelessly to ensure I was satisfied with all the work she produced. She has an exceptional creative flair and is an absolute pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with her again in the very near future.

Cath was a consummate professional and an absolute delight to work with. I couldn’t be prouder of the internal layout of my book and wouldn’t have anyone but Cath do the next one. She spent hours patiently working through every detail and continually made suggestions that enhanced the look of my manuscript. She always responded quickly to my queries and was great at following me up. As well as the layout of the physical book Cath created the e-book., Given that technology is continually changing she was happy to conduct research to ensure that we had the latest information to hand and that the layout of the ebook was the best that it could possibly be. Thanks Cath the money I spent with you was well worth it. My book wouldn’t be the same without your input
