Catherine is an amazing graphic designer. She worked with me for a period of 2 – 3 weeks to design issue of 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 visually depict every article. 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 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 is a skilled publication designer who has excellent project and team management skills to complement her technical and creative design abilities. Her knowledge of print production is particularly good and she is always a pleasure to work with.

I’ve worked with Cath in various capacities for more than five years, both at the AA and as a freelancer and have always found her helpful, calm and hardworking. She has a great eye for detail and is an ideal choice for design work whether you have a tight and particular brief or want more input from her. Highly recommended.

Having worked with Catherine for a number of years I have always found her work to be of the highest quality and creativity.  Catherine is extremely professional and never missed a deadline.

It is always a pleasure to work with a professional and Catherine is just that. We’ve worked together on a number of books and she has been consistently creative, efficient and a real asset to the overall project.

I am writing you to say thank you for the excellent interior design that you created for my book “Accountable The Joseph Usher Story.”  Catherine, your interior design made the last step in publishing my book go smoothly and as I found my errors, that my eye’s had over looked, you corrected them every time with kindness and a positive attitude. I will look forward to working with you on my next murder mystery.

-- Nancy Panoch, Author (USA)


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

I worked with Catherine at Strobe Communications (previously Struik Media) and subsequently at the Faversham House Group. 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 easygoing 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.
