Jason's previous job was as the creative director of a local business graphics organisation and decided to set up the Flint back in 1996.
I would like to put into writing my appreciation of the design work that you have undertaken on my behalf.
The Flint grasped my client's requirements straight away and produced several designs all of which surpassed expectations and were delivered with impeccable timing. The Flint have also been careful to understand the technical requirements and limitations of any web project and bear these in mind when producing their designs - which is not always the case with many creatives.
Since then I've had the pleasure of working alongside Jason on a number of projects and continue to be impressed with his creativity, dedication and enthusiasm.
If you're looking for a creative dynamo for your design or branding needs, I can wholeheartedly recommend The Flint and I look forward to working with Jason and Mandy on many future projects.
This is a testimonial I recently gave to Jason at a Bristol Business Meeting.
To whom it may concern,
My name is Phil Brumfitt, and I am the Managing Director of AdvoCater Ltd, a catering equipment company operating from the Southwest, but supplying equipment to businesses nationwide.
I have personally been in business for over 40 years and am very ‘choosy’ when deciding which suppliers to give my business to, but when it came to deciding who I would use for proposing the ‘branding’ of my new catering equipment company, I had no hesitation in choosing Jason Flinter. I had heard lots of great things about Jason prior to involving him with my new company, and I have to say that he never disappointed in his dealings with me.
Jason had extensive conversations with me to find out about me, my proposed company, and the philosophy and the future direction of the company, and although he gave me a choice of company names, the name AdvoCater stood out as it is absolutely perfect for me. Jason then gave me a ‘small though ideal’ number of company logos and strap lines to choose from, and then prepared layouts for the company business cards, compliment slips and letterheads.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jason and ‘The Flint’ to any companies that are looking at their own branding.
Jason, thank you for the work you did polishing my existing brand. The work you did took it from ok but clumsy (almost like someone who knew his way around photoshop attempted to do it himself) to well polished and classy. Your subtle touches created a remarkable impact and added a professionalism that was previously lacking.
Jason worked around my existing workflows and print services so everything slotted neatly in to place and worked well with the presentation tools I use. He is an excellent listener, always delivers and most importantly has an impeccable taste for great design.
Jason at the Flint designed a banner for me in autumn 2012. Despite this being a relatively small piece of work, he spent time finding out about my business values, benefits to my clients and key messages. He summarised his understanding back to me in writing and then came up with designs to choose from. Delivery was speedy and quality great. Thank you The Flint.
I have used Jason both for my own business and he has also provided branding and graphic design services for some of my clients. Jason's approach is unlike any other branding agency I know. He really gets to the heart of what the business is about and how to achieve a great brand a market position. It is not just about design, it is about the business promise and how to stand out from your competition. What makes him unique is that he applies big brand ideals to small and medium sized companies which helps them to punch above their weight and therefore become more profitable. If you are thinking about whether it is worth the investment, there is no doubt in my mind that using Jason's skills and expertise is definitely worth the investment. He is a highly likeable guy too, so it doesn't feel like work when you are working with him.
I am writing to you to thank you for the fantastic work you did for me recently designing my banner. The whole process was very quick and easy with an initial meeting with you to talk through my business and the message I wanted to get across and then some reviews electronically between us to finalise the design. What particularly impressed me was your patience and willingness to tweak things for me to look at further along the way and your openness to suggestions for alternatives. I am delighted with the look and feel of the banner and will be highly recommending your services to others and wish to thank you again for your care and assistance.
As a design and print company dealing with SME’s we often get asked to do produce a logo for companies when sometimes the company in questions need a much broader review of their branding . These are the situation when we feel that we need to refer the client to the Flint for help. In all cases the feed back from the client has been extremely positive and they really appreciate the time and care taken by Jason and professional approach applied in rebranding their business. Importantly, almost all clients expected that the re-branding of their business would lead to more business and they would recover the investment made several times over. We will continue to use Jason Flinter and the Flint in this capacity and would strongly recommend him to any organisation that is looking to rebrand their business.
