King Edward’s School needed a visually exciting design for our annual magazine to reflect the diversity of activities that our former pupils are involved in. Caroline created a stunning design, combining creative flair with an excellent interpretation of the brief. Her designs for our alumni events publicity have been equally innovative and I highly recommend her work.

Caroline has been working with Genesis Trust since 2014 and it’s been a very fruitful collaborative relationship. She has designed a variety of publicity materials for us (campaign logos, leaflets, posters, advertising flyers) and devised new fund raising campaign materials often from just a kernel of an idea. She is a delight to work with and quickly gets to grips with our requirements.
She also understands our mission and brand and very patiently deals with our demands for revisions. As well as being a talented and creative designer she is approachable and easy to get on with and has worked with several members of our team on different projects. Caroline always makes time for us and impressively hits deadlines, no matter how quick the turnaround.
We’re delighted with the work she has done for us and it’s very reassuring to know that she’s also there for advice when we’re just at the ideas stage of new initiatives.

It is fantastic working with Caroline – she brings excellence and innovation to her design work, which is always underpinned by her highly professional and organised approach to deadlines and superb attention to detail. During the pandemic, she has been extremely supportive and flexible in her approach as we moved from a printed to an online product, proactively coming up with creative and cost -effective solutions, without compromising on quality and service.
Development Officer, King Edwards School
Caroline and I connected at the first virtual Bath Business Festival and I was really impressed by her positive, helpful and can-do approach. We quickly began working together to design and visually enhance my bids for network TV pitches and competitive funding applications. She intuitively picked up my values and branding and combined it with visual story telling for the content I was writing. Her responsive and collaborative approach was vital to meet the tight deadlines and criteria for the bids which was always delivered on time and often at short notice. The added level of attention to detail she gave was a bonus to speed up amendments and accuracy. After an intensive run of projects we were successful in our bid to Innovate UK for substantial grant to build our inclusive talent app. It was a successful, creative and enjoyable partnership on all fronts.
Founder & Creative Director, Gritty Talent Group Ltd.
Caroline has had a long affiliation with King Edward’s School, working on numerous in-house design projects from flyers to school brochures. One of Caroline’s most notable design projects for us is our annual magazine, KESlife.
Caroline’s design skills, meticulous attention to detail and her personal commitment to the client is simply admirable. No matter what the text change, quality of the image or the variety of file formats, Caroline, without question, works tirelessly to ensure she produces the very best product for the client. She is always on the end of the phone and is always happy to meet face-to-face to discuss any new or ongoing projects. Caroline understands fully our school brand and confidently and consistently works to ensure that this is conveyed through any of the in-house publications she is working on. Her dedication to the school is truly humbling, and from my personal experience, is a delight to work with.
I highly recommend Caroline Curran Design.

You are the most versatile and reliable designer we have on our freelance books (I mean that!)

Appledore Research is defined by the quality of our research. However, this quality was often hidden by document branding that was “amateur” and a website that was difficult to navigate and use. Caroline was able to assemble a local team of marcom experts and website designers to fulfil the brief to change our branding and our website. Caroline has produced a brand design which is eye catching and distinctive. Our customers have commented on the attractiveness and quality of the website design. They also appreciate the design quality of our documents both online and printed. There is also a notable increase in use of the website both by new users and our subscription clients.
Partner & Principal Analyst, Appledore Research
Caroline is incredibly supportive to The Genesis Trust. Her response to a brief is always well thought out, creative and rigorous with some great ideas.

We worked with Caroline on the design for our logo and promotional material for our customers to provide to their users. Our logo has provided us with the scope we needed, being flexible enough for print, digital and mobile promotion.
The clean and clear logo design has helped us to stand out from the crowd and making us eye-catching in crowded areas, such as shop windows and on the app store.
Since working with Caroline we have successfully launched our loyalty app, with more than 2,500 users, a rapidly growing customer base and a new office in Newport, Wales. We are a proud finalist of Bath Life Awards 2017 and have been hailed by several of our customers as a “monumental success” for their business.
