As a director I realise the value of quality branding, being able to stand out and be seen. Bare Face help me overcome the challenge of changing the image of my company, an inherited logo that said everything about the past, nothing about the future and kept us pigeon-holed in a place we didn't want to be. With new branding, Bare Face resolved that problem and reflected our core values of quality and service. Jump forward 7 years and they've done it again, a brand new image that engages our customers and stands out in a crowd. CHRIS LODGE, MANOR LODGE FOOD

“Emma and her team have been instrumental in creating Callaghan's with an eye-catching brand and social media presence. Emma was very persuasive in her wishes to brand the business and in 2011 she got her wish and we have never looked back. We now have a range of creative and eye-catching literature for our BBQ's and Hog Roasts. Despite the fact Emma is my sister I think she does a great job for us!” HOWARD CALLAGHAN, G CALLAGHAN & SON

I knew our business needed a good website but getting started was a really daunting task.  I really didn’t know where to start, then I met with Emma.  Over a series of meetings Emma guided my thoughts on how the website should look based on the clients I was trying to attract, and the messages I was trying to share about our services.  Emma helped to break building the website into bite sized pieces.  Thanks to Emma’s expertise and efforts I feel confident we have a fresh, user friendly website which positively portrays who we are and secures business for us. LUCY GOUGH, REDHOUND SURVEYORS

As a new small business with no marketing background I was delighted to find Bare Face Marketing. Emma made me and my little salon feel just as important as a big company.  She was there every step of the way during a full rebrand, new shop front, business cards, vouchers and merchandise. A professional service and a pleasure to work with. Can't wait to use Bare Face Marketing for a new website in the future. Is there anything Emma can't do!? JODIE PEARCE - JODIE'S NAILS & BEAUTY

Emma played an instrumental role in the set up of Inclusive Practice.  Without her experience, guidance and tenacity our company may have remained an idea in our heads. She skilfully led us through our branding and website design, giving us the confidence we needed to understand and communicate who we are as a company.  We knew that every decision made was an informed one, and that we were in safe hands. LOUISE ENDERSBY AND ELLEN GRADY - INCLUSIVE PRACTICE

"Emma has worked with us from the very beginning and has worked tirelessly to create a strong brand identity for Kinetek. We are proud of our on-line presence including our current digital marketing programme. We have regular meetings to ensure that our online marketing strategy is kept on track, and to make sure that we are aware of progress of our digital marketing plans. Emma is passionate about marketing and that shows in her work and that of her close-knit marketing team.” ROB CHESWORTH, KINETEK

Emma from Bare Face works collaboratively with us in order to meet all of our marketing requirements. She’s developed a brand with us that fulfils our criteria and is relevant to our marketplace. She also designs, develops and arranges production of all of our marketing products; whether for specific events or to meet our ongoing needs. BETH HILL - INTOUCH

My brief to Emma was to design and build a website that would clearly explain the services I provide , create an easy to use E-commerce section and have a luxurious feel, I am delighted with the results.  Emma communicates very well and working with her was easy and speedy. I’m delighted with the results and so are my customers. MATTHEW JOHNSON - DAVID GAVIN DESIGN
