Martin was an absolute pleasure to work with. He nailed the brief instantly and worked very quickly and efficiently to produce exactly what we wanted. I would highly recommend his services without hesitation and I look forward to working with him again in the future.

As someone who both understands brand and how to implement it successfully in an organisation, I have come across no one better than Martin. His process is unique and demonstrates a deep understanding of business, brand strategy and architecture. I have used him to create my brand and also act as its brand guardian, as I grow. I have also recommended Martin to several of my clients, every time they come back with a raving endorsement. I have no hesitation in recommending Martin.
Stuart Ross - High Growth
I have had the pleasure of working with the team at Design and I for over four years now. The work produced always exceeds expectations and is always unique. Great team to work with.
Reena Valand - NHS, HIEC and Clinical Scholar
Martin Hyde of Design & I absolutely nailed our album and EP artwork. These releases were pretty crucial for us to break through on another level; the visuals absolutely had to have as much impact as the music, or we wouldn’t get a foot in the door with everyone from radio to promoters.
Martin’s skills seem to lie in really listening and understanding intuitively what’s needed for a given client - even pretty left-field stuff like ours.
He’s also a pleasure to work with, and is very focussed on delivering something you LOVE, as well as delivering on time. The options he offered us were startling, beautiful and affecting - and absolutely opened doors for us.
Our fans and new audiences totally love it, and the artwork for both our album ‘Atomise’ and EP ‘Music/Nature’ help us be perceived in a way we need to be.
Man’s a legend. Get involved, you won’t regret it!
Tim Heymerdinger - The Little Unsaid
Martin Hyde did a fantastic job on our full rebranding project. Martin worked very closely with us to rebrand Sharmans Pharmacy, a business established in 1899. He really took the time to understand what we desired and not only met but exceeded our expectations. Our customers love the new branding and so do we! I cannot recommend Martin enough.
Rikin Patel - Sharman’s Pharmacy
First rate service I would highly recommend
Sarah Stevenson - Astute Recruitment
Martin has been fantastic to work with - great fun as well as detailed and focused. He has really helped me to understand branding. He has a very good process that takes you through the stages of branding which is way more involved than I imagined it would be when we first began working together. He has helped me to position my business in a much better way and I am looking forward to implementing the ideas and continuing to work with him.
Beshlie Donaldson - Donaldson Recruitment
Martin is a talented, hard working and creative professional. We enjoyed working with him and his insights were valuable. Thanks Martin!
Ella Taran - Krav and Cub
Martin is an expert on brand and what it means to your business. With the launch of two new businesses it was essential to get the brand concept correct from the start to gain traction as quickly as possible. He took the time to talk me through brand strategy and the brand development process and with his guidance I quickly realised that brand is much more than a logo. Martin came up with the goods and also built two beautiful websites around the brand concepts he developed. I would highly recommend him, and have already done so, to anyone looking to develop or refresh their existing brand - he is a true professional.
Simon Gray - Career Codex
Martin delivered intensive 3-day Illustrator and Web design courses to industry-based creatives at the University of Derby. All the feedback for Martin's teaching was positive. All his work with my department and our clients was dealt with professionally and I would not hesitate to employ his services again.
Scott Knight - Derby University
Martin is wonderful!! He comes up with some awesome ideas that nobody else would ever have thought of. I cannot recommend him enough. Great bloke, great mind!
Neil King - Cedar and Co
Martin has provided some excellent support for the East Midlands HIEC and his expertise has added considerably to establishing our web presence and brand identify. His levels of creativity and design have created for us a modern contemporary web site that has seen well received by our project teams. I am really pleased to be given this opportunity to endorse and promote Design and I and I would recommend Martin to all potential clients.
