Howell Edwards Creative designed materials for EVIDENCE: MUSIC OF THELONIOUS MONK, a jazz album that I produced in 2017, including a gatefold triple album cover, a double CD, coasters, and a poster. Not only did they take my notes and really pay attention to them, they took everything to a new level. The result was as classical as I'd imagined but also stirringly modern, in ways that connected with the music, which they actually listened to and thought about. Their prices were quite reasonable, they were easy to work with, and they did all sorts of little things that were surprising in a good way. I'll be working with them again for sure.

Howell Edwards are great to work with! They are extremely talented illustrators and also very easy to work with. They have great ideas and bring solid input to every project.

I've worked with Charlotte from Howell Edwards as a subcontractor for one of my client's projects. Charlotte has the rare ability (within the web industry) of actually listening to a brief and doing exactly what needs to be done! Charlotte is quick, responsive, helpful and happy to go the extra mile, even when that slides outside the original brief - as happens sometimes. I would absolutely recommend Howell Edwards and I will be working with them again in future.

I can't recommend Howell Edwards highly enough. They are not only incredibly talented designers but they are also extremely professional and amazing throughout the whole creative and feedback process. We were blown away by them!

Fast and friendly service. They did a great evaluation of our existing website and delivered a massive improvement for a great price, which included a content management system and Google Analytics set-up. Very happy with their continuous support too!

Howell Edwards Creative have been great fun to work with and, importantly for us, flexible. They have supported our brand with good ideas and experience. The result has been hard won and the integration of overview ‘feel’ to detail which is important to us and our clients has been a great success. Technically, they have incorporated all the functionality we needed and more; and we have not suffered any uploading issues either. Thank you.

Phil is very professional, accommodating and (above all) very talented. Not only are his artistic skills perfect for my book, he is also very knowledgeable about what is and is not acceptable for book covers in the UK and USA markets.

Super friendly. Excellent at what they do. Work efficiently, listen to brief and have great creative solutions. Fair pricing and will use Howell Edwards again and again and again.

LJ LoweOwner of Boutique Productions

Howell Edwards Creative sets the standard for beautiful, unique, catchy & effective illustration design and concept development. I've worked with the company closely on six children's books, company branding for my publishing house and media company and several websites and other projects for over three years and find their service, ingenuity & speed to be unparalleled.
