Clare was able to understand my requirements for a fresh rebrand of my OHS consulting and auditing business from a sole trader to a company and expand on streams for quality and environmental consulting. Clare has a friendly and bubbly personality which makes the process seamless, and her ability to interpret my thoughts into concepts for logos, colours and styles was excellent. Highly recommended if you are growing or rebranding your business, or if you are starting from scratch!

Clare has been extremely wonderful to work with. She was very thorough with her customer brief and produced branding as if she was creating directly from my thoughts. I was happy with all options that were presented and a choice was made without any revisions needed. I have also worked with Clare updating an already existing brand to tie in with some new products about to be launched. She had no trouble seamlessly bringing my visions and instructions to life. I would highly recommend Clares' work and feel that her price is very reasonable for a highly skilled graphic designer.

It was great to work with Clare who has such expertise in her field. Clare has impeccable design taste and was also extremely thorough and detailed in her work. Her approach was fresh and dynamic and I am delighted with the final outcome. I feel privileged to have had Clare be the creative mind behind conceptualising the Cool Kidz' Mealz brand and will recommend Clare to anyone I know looking for a graphic designer. A massive thank you Clare.

Developing our branding identity with Blade Creative has been a pleasurable and rewarding experience. The quality and detail of the work delivered was above and beyond our expectations. Clare has provided a professional service, from the initial design brief, through brand identity design and to the final comprehensive logo specification. At the beginning of the process, Clare took the time to clearly identify our brand personality and future goals so that her design work was a reflection of our company’s personality. We’re exceptionally happy with our bold and creative design. We highly recommend Blade Creative.

Thanks Clare, I've really valued how you've approached the brand refresh with me. Your honesty and tenacity is exactly what I needed to help make this happen! I can not wait to roll the rest of the branding out over the coming weeks.

Clare it has been a pleasure to deal with you and helping me bring Athletic HQ to life. Your attention to detail and willingness to collaborate is really refreshing. I found there to be a healthy blend between delivering exactly what I was asking for whilst also mentoring me to make sensible and effective branding choices. Thanks for doing what you do best! Will be back again!
Andrew Kormas, Athletic HQ
Thank you Clare, It was fun to be taken through your process of coming up with a new logo. I was so relieved when I realized the key was to be colourful and Mobilo inspired. Having this symbol reminds me of what I want to achieve.

We had the pleasure of working with Webby Web Design and Blade Creative for our business re-brand.
From the initial meeting with Clare and Meirav, to the attentive service we received, to the finished product, we always knew we had made the right choice. Clare and Meirav worked together seamlessly and it was like dealing with one company. As a team, they discussed ideas with us to develop an overall branding strategy that could flow from print to our online presence that helps to build on and enhance our brand.
I would highly recommend Clare and Meirav to anyone looking for the full suite of design work.
You guys are the best!

Faced with the difficult task of rebranding my landscape design business, I turned to Clare Blackstock at Blade Creative. Before starting work on my rebranding, Clare made sure she had a detailed understanding of my clients, their expections and the direction I was taking my business. I couldn’t be happier with the results. My branding hit the mark, and Clare continues to help me grow and hone my brand through print material as well as connecting me with a web designer and printing company. I can honestly say that the success I now have in my business started with the rebranding Blade Creative completed five years ago.

My personal site is the second project in which I have enlisted the services of Webby Web Design and Blade Creative. Initially, together they created my online business, The Slipper Hub. This was an enormous job as we were branding and building a business from scratch. It has been an enormous success. For the Melanie Sheppard site, I needed an online presence for my published writing and whilst I was very clear about what I didn’t want, I really had no idea of where to start. Clare listened to my ideas and key words, then pulled together something that very much represented how I wanted my brand to look and feel. Meirav then unpacked the mechanics ensuring that the sight was slick, but user friendly for both myself and my readers. These girls work beautifully together fulfilling the brief and beyond. Timelines are met and their service is of a high standard. Apart from this, they are just both lovely people to work with and I look forward to our next project.

It is pretty apparent what Clare’s defining factor is - intuition. She extracts every part of your heart and brand personality, injects it into your design, and then smashes it to the next level by adding a crazy, yet unassuming vibrancy.
The only word that comes close to encapsulating one tenth of what I felt when opening the initial branding concepts is ‘enthrallment’. Clare’s work has this ability to instantly capture every part of your attention, shoot your mood through the roof and leave you slightly breathless.
Having worked within the industry for some time, I can say that it is rare to come across someone with such a genuine, professional and experienced approach to design. I am sincerely blown away!

Clare has been an absolute dream to work with and I cannot thank her enough for both the quality of work and her professionalism. After two short meetings Clare was able to capture the ideas in my head and produce a draft for review. With a few minor edits thereafter, Clare presented me with the final artwork which I can only describe as “very classy” and exceeding my expectations. Thanks again Clare, stirling job!

Clare at Blade is amazing - she did the branding for my company (and everyone always comments on my brilliant logo), and in the process helped me to better understand my own business. Her insight and acumen enable her to get to the heart of what your business is about, what it needs to say, and how best to reach out to the right customers. Even though she's on the other side of the world to me (I'm in the UK), the distance was no obstacle to her delivering a supportive service and quick results.

Clare you ARE amazing. Since the day we sat down and discussed the Baybridge Consultants branding brief, you made me feel at ease, your expertise was immediately obvious, leaving me having complete trust and confidence. The initial concept designs, left me teary eyed – you had nailed the brief. Thanks to you, Baybridge Consultants has been given a visual identity that reflects our culture.
There is so much to thank you for, I know you have invested so much of yourself in the process, mostly I thank you for making this experience exciting, fun and truly stress free. I have no hesitation in recommending Blade Creative to other business owners about to embark on the business branding process.
Bridgette Triandafilidis, awcaccountants.com.au
Note: the Baybridge Consultants brand was designed in 2013. In 2016 they needed to change their name to AWC Accountants, the associated brand design refresh was carried out by Blade Creative too.
Clare had some great ideas right away and I loved the concepts she delivered. She's very responsive and intuitive and I'm very happy to recommend Blade Creative.

Clare Blackstock from Blade Creative has been providing Graphic Design work for our start-up company for approximately the last 6 months. We have required graphic design work in a number of different areas including company logo, email signatures, website, brochures, large banners for expos and packaging design for our food products. Every time Clare has produced new work for us, we have been highly impressed with the exceptional standard. Her design work is dynamic, fresh, eye catching and stays true to our branding.
Clare is reliable, communicative, flexible and fantastic to deal with. We are looking forward to our continued relationship with Blade Creative as we grow our company.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Blade Creative to any company who is looking for outstanding graphic design.

I really enjoyed working with Clare to re-brand our business, it was a true collaboration that resulted in a brilliant solution. I had lots of ideas but didn’t know how to bring them together. Clare had great vision and demonstrated a real talent for creating a concept that truly represented our business. She was adaptable, responsive and innovative. The result is fantastic face for our business that will grow and evolve with us for many years to come.

The thought of designing a brand which captured the essence of my business seemed daunting from the outset. However, Clare’s careful questioning, insightful probing, inherent intuition and raw creativity made the whole process so simple and straightforward. The end product exceeded my expectations and I’m so proud of my brand and what Clare created based on a few ideas and simple concepts.
