A word from our clients

We have been very fortunate over the years to work with some fantastic business people. Here are some of the testimonials that we have received …

Simon has been hands on with our titles for more than two years and is such a valuable member of our outsourced team. With an exceptional ability to work under his own steam and create designs that are clean, clear, eye-catching and unique, Simon’s attention to detail is exceptional and ability to keep everything on brand is on point.

Simon is able to liaise with our journalists and sales team alike to interpret what is required and create magazine layouts in a timely manner. He is liked by everyone and referred to as having a lovely calm manner – which is amazing given the work and deadlines we give him!

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Simon to help with any aspect of magazine production, advert design and layout. He is a total asset.

Whittlebury Park work with SG Creative Design to design and deliver different promotional activities, from wedding brochures to magazine adverts and Christmas party brochures to large format wall displays. Simon is extremely efficient and approachable, taking the time to understand the theme and image you want to create. His fresh ideas and ability to turn things around quickly, maintaining a high quality of work are by far the best around. We are delighted to recommend Simon’s creative work to anyone.

Carol & Jeff Sargeant, Whittlebury Park Hotel & Spa

I am a franchisee of the lawn care company, Lawnscience. I was introduced to Simon Goodger and that was one of the best referrals I have had in my marketing, design and printing career. Simon has produced brilliant designs and advised me of what may or may not work in reality. He clearly has a good relationship with printers as the prices are incredibly great value for money. I thoroughly recommend him.

Mark Batty, Lawnscience Stamford

With his creative flair and attention to detail, the bright attractive design and layout are the core reason that Focus Magazines stand out and are always identifiable in the geographical areas in which they serve. SG Creative Design’s approach is always professional in every aspect of his work and he provides many solutions to the challenges we encounter.

The Home Improvement Centre have used SG Creative Design to help with the design and marketing of their Snug Roofs, The Door Studio and Best Value Doors brands for some years now. He is always willing to listen to our ideas and translate them into effective and workable designs. This has included social media advertising, magazine advertising and brochures, order forms and price lists for our various businesses.

I can confidently recommend Simon for any of your design requirements. He has designed a number of marketing materials for me across a number of successful campaigns. He is great for new ideas, has good attention to detail and turns things around quickly. What more could you want?!

Nigel Bishop, Lawnscience North Hampshire

If we need an pair of hands, Simon is the guy we go to; in his work here he has shown himself to be conscientious, hard working, talented and adaptable. We are a publishing house, so the mainstay of our business is magazine layout and design, to which Simon shows an excellent aptitude. He’s able to take a brief, pick up the job in hand and get on with it with the minimum of fuss. I wouldn’t have any hesitation in recommending him to anyone who might require a freelancer to step in and fill the breach.

Gareth Davies studio manager, Yandell Media Group

I have worked with Simon for several years now and have always found his design skills to be dynamic, imaginative and in tune with the latest ideas and trends. He is very organised and thorough, making him very easy to work with. I have met all my deadlines to produce unique stamps and First Day Covers. My current project with Simon is for an International Conference programme. It’s exciting seeing it come together. Simon can also provide printing and delivery, offering a complete solution for every project, from conception to completion. #Soroptimists

We are delighted with the work SG Creative Design has produced for us. His attention to detail and ability to work within our brief means that we always receive our artwork on-time, within budget, and most importantly looking really professional.

Terry Nicholson director, Lawnscience UK

We have continuously used SG Creative Design for our marketing design since December 2008. Simon is a dependable creative who can be relied upon to produce effective adverts across the printed publishing sector.

Mark Fletcher, Custom Glaze Ltd

Simon has volunteered his design services on Advantage Africa’s newsletter and many posters, leaflets and handbooks since 2009. He’s a fantastic graphic designer who always delivers great artwork on time. He’s patient, makes an effort to understand the essence of an organisation in order to communicate their message effectively, and is a real pleasure to work with.

Andrew Betts, charity director, Advantage Africa

I was first introduced to Simon by a mutual friend in 2018. A friend and I were organising a charity Burns Night for 2019 and Simon very graciously agreed to prepare all the advertising artwork and menu cards free of charge. The evening was a huge success and raised over £7,000. In 2020 we were asked to organise another Burns Night and Simon once again helped us out. This year, 2022, we organised a gala dinner dance with a ‘James Bond’ theme and Simon organised and designed all the advertising, again free of charge. Undoubtedly, without Simon’s design expertise, skill and most generous donation, my friend and I would not have been able to put on our charity events and make them the success that they were, and we cannot thank him enough.

Nothing is a problem for Simon, he always produces great quality work with an impressively quick turnaround. 

David Stewart, Lawnscience North Surrey

SG Creative Design created a new Parker Kitchens logo which we now use throughout our business. This includes our stationery, office exterior signage,  and our fleet of vans. We are very pleased at the results we see from Simon’s adverts for various local magazines, and also the speed and professionalism of Simon’s creative work. We have no hesitation in recommending SG Creative Design to any prospective customers.

Darren Parker, Parker Kitchens Ltd

We have been working alongside SG Creative Design since November 2008 during which time Simon has consistently come up with creative ideas to help promote our show and events. He listens to our requirements, and works closely with us to make sure our finished artwork always looks excellent.

Jackie Galo, Central Exhibitions Ltd (organisers of the MK Wedding Show)

We have always found Simon to be extremely helpful and professional. The quality of design is always “spot on” and original, he also has an extensive knowledge of advertising. Reliability and promptness of his service is always excellent, we can always contact him either by phone or email.  We actually leave it to him to liaise with local papers on our behalf so deadlines are never missed and it then frees up our time to concentrate on other things. I would happily recommend his services.

Three Locks Golf Club, Little Brickhill, near Milton Keynes

Whilst volunteering at Bletchley Park from 1992 to the current day, I came across a young designer, just after the new Millennium. Simon Goodger was designing from scratch, monthly advertising magazines, as well as many other diverse activities and challenges. I needed someone to take up the challenge we had at the Bppo (Bletchley Park Post Office). We needed a designer that could place a new emphasis on First Day Covers. With his first brief to design a cover to meet the history linked to the Stamps, Simon achieved this 110%.

Not only did his early covers achieve the goal but they went further and encouraged non collectors to take up their wallets and contribute not just because Bletchley Park is a worthwhile cause but because it concentrated peoples minds on the subject matter and the great causes this represents. These included First Day Covers for the 50th Anniversary of the town of Milton keynes (now a new Jubilee City) to the 300th Anniversary of The Masonic Fraternity. With a host of others in between and since, raising thousands of Pounds for charity and good causes.  

Following the closure 21 years of the BPPO after first opening In 1994 , Simon has gone on to produce many other fund raising Designs for charitable and business institutions alike. His extra activities in the area of expertise from designing through to production and printing is formidable in an industry defined and restricted by its lack of diversity.

As a marketing communications consultant specialising in start-ups and small businesses, I couldn’t do without SG Creative Design. For example,  getting going on a brand identity for a new business can be tricky, but I can always count on him to help me in the thought processes so that the end result is spot on! Simon’s creative skills encompass all areas of marketing communications, from advertising in print, logo design and sign writing artwork right through to digital media. He’s a very talented creative, no doubt about that, but what stands out for me is that he is always enthusiastic about the task in hand, be it a small advert or a major revamp of a website. I know I can count on Simon to produce exactly what I and my clients are looking for, in time and within budget. I have no hesitation in highly recommending him.

Sue Gagg, Marketing Communications Consultant

I contacted SG Creative Design when I was looking for some help in developing an image for my business in Spanish Language Training. Simon understood my business and how I want to develop it. After just a couple of days, Simon created a fantastic logo and adverts that are not only colourful, contemporary, and original but… (most important!)…effective!

Lina Valencia-Lopez director, MK Spanish UK and MK Spanisch (DE)

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for your efforts last week. Adam said that you got on really well – we’ve always found it difficult in the past with freelancers when they have had no experience of designing for a newspaper so I will definitely be in touch when we need any further cover.

WS Advertising, Milton Keynes

I have found Simon to be very conscientious, reliable, timely and with evidence of clear attention to detail.  I would have no hesitation in recommending his work.

ACP Marketing
