We are proud of the high level of service we provide – we have long-term relationships with many of our clients because they know they can trust us to consistently deliver effective results on time and on budget.


We were absolutely delighted with the illustration and design work done for us by Anna at Making Sense. She took time to understand what we needed and provided some excellent, creative outputs that could be used in leaflets, animations and presentations which have helped make the dissemination of our research more interesting and engaging.

The team are very responsive to the needs of their clients and can deliver to tight deadlines without compromising on the quality of the work. We have worked with them on a number of projects now, and each time the final product has been outstanding. We would recommend Making Sense very highly indeed!

Adwoa Hughes-Morley, Institute of Population Health, The University of Manchester January 26, 2015

Working with Making Sense has been a pleasure. Our requests for complex image designs were met with enthusiasm and creativity. Additionally, they were able to ‘make sense’ of our basic ideas, and transform them into a well-designed, professional portfolio of work. We highly recommend Making Sense’s services.

Jack Adams, NIHR CLAHRC for Greater Manchester January 23, 2015

We’ve worked with Making Sense for a few years now and have found them to be the consummate professionals when it comes to design and building client relationships. Beyond their ideas and creativity, they’ve proved to be exceptionally efficient in turning projects around for us – especially those at short notice! Their personable approach is refreshing, and they are always on hand with ideas and suggestions to maximise the impact of what we do.

Communications Team, NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group January 23, 2015

Brian and his team respond swiftly to briefs, deliver results which are spot on (it's their detailed knowledge of the NHS, empathy with the project and understanding of the limited NHS comms budgets that enables this) and do it so you think you're their only client. Highly recommended company.

Helen Stevens, Head of Engagement, NHS Leadership Academy January 20, 2015

Making Sense are a delight to work with. They can almost instantly transform your brief into a creative and purposeful piece of work.

Julie Phelan, Communications Director, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals January 20, 2015

Brian and his team always provide excellent design solutions and can take the sketchiest brief or idea I have and make it a reality. Excellent NHS experience as well.

Chris Horner, Associate Director Communications, Warrington and Halton Hospitals January 20, 2015

I’ve been working with Making Sense Design for ten years and have always found them to be extremely helpful. On many occasions they have been able to produce high quality, fit for purpose documents within very short timescales and with minimal input from me as the client. The team has an excellent knowledge of branding and corporate style alongside valuable experience of working in healthcare and the NHS. The designs are always well received by colleagues and patients alike and have enabled the delivery of a number of successful corporate and marketing campaigns.
