CDUK Limited logo

Ian is a highly professional, creative designer who you can rely on to go the extra mile. The work completed on a collection of brochures for CDUK is a great example of this, Ian took time to understand CDUK, the product range and the brief in detail before quickly offering a fantastic choice of concepts at design stage to kick-off each project. His eye for detail throughout the projects ensured each brochure provided the product detail we needed, creating additional renders, technical drawings or retouching images where required within the project timelines. The brochures have proved successful sales aids throughout 2019 making me a very happy client!

Puppercuts high-class dog grooming logo

I used Ian at De FARIA DEAN design for my dog grooming business logo. From start to finish I was so impressed with the service and not just the quality of design, but the communication, and the way it was all explained to me was second to none. Ian was quick to work and got me some draft design ideas over within a few days. The logo is the first thing my clients see when looking at my business and I owe a chunk of the success to Ian for creating me a great head-turning brand design.

Big Tree Marketing logo

I have worked with Ian on a number of projects and his work is absolutely outstanding. Ian’s ability to grasp the creative brief and turn that into designs that really wow is phenomenal, even when the client is unclear on what they want. Along with his obvious high level of competency in design, Ian’s responsiveness, attention to detail, and general positive makes Ian my go-to designer for quality brand design work. I’d 100% recommend Ian to anyone looking for professional yet inspiring creative.

From start to finish the service I received from de Faria Dean Design was excellent. Ian took the time to understand what my business was about and then helped to develop my existing ideas from scratch to create the brand end product.

Ian kept me updated throughout the whole process and wrote in terms that were easily understandable (no techy words) this was conducted with such a quick turnaround and timescales were always  set out, this was all via email and there were no issues at all. Nothing was too much trouble and I would not hesitate in using de Faria Dean Design again in the future for all my business needs and would also to recommend to anyone.

I engaged Ian on the back of a solid recommendation and a 10 minute chat. I needed help with a brochure and branding generally. Ian took my woolly, inadequate instructions and in no time gave me more than I could have hoped for. How he could interpret what we talked about & then exceed expectations astonished me?!


I was so pleased with his work on my brochure that I soon asked Ian to help refresh my website, and again I’m chuffed to bits with the results. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ian as a graphic designer.
