What people say

Marit Mohn Lena has been a pleasure to work with on the design and upkeep of our Foundation’s website.

From the start it has been a collaborative process and we were impressed with how quickly Lena understood our brief and turned it into a website that is both engaging in its design and user-friendly. 

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her – nothing is too much trouble for her and she is quick and attentive to our needs.

Sabine Schmidt Lena Whitaker is an extremely capable graphic designer. Whether she is designing flyers, business cards, letterheads, invitations, certificates or annual report booklets, her projects never fail to impress.

Most recently she designed and built the Friends of SAYes website, going above and beyond what was expected.

Always professional, Lena is very client-orientated, able to design to precise specifications or create a project without detailed input from her clients. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Tony Thorpe I worked with Lena for more than fifteen years, during which time she designed and illustrated a wide range of publications and products: textbooks, guides, flyers and panels.

Lena brings fresh ideas to a project, enhancing the materials and making them so much more interesting, effective, and accessible. She seems to have the knack of getting it right.

Lena is a great colleague to work with – she listens hard, understands what we are trying to do, and always comes up with new ideas for development.

Claire Pedrick Lena has travelled with us over a number of years and when we needed a new logo for part of the business she unleashed her wisdom in full flow. Not only did she recommend that we took this as an opportunity to rebrand, but she managed to keep the theme from our old branding. A cleaner font, cleaner look and so very us!

I love how she recognises what kind of a business we are and offers what we need in a medium we can use easily. We love Lena and recommend her as a great designer!

Jessica Towle From our first conversation Lena was warm, friendly, professional and, most importantly, patient.

I am absolutely delighted with the end product – a beautiful, unique logo design that conveys warmth, openness, growth, movement and change.

It has been a real pleasure to work with someone so professional and so patient. I prevaricated quite a bit but Lena ensured that this daunting task became a fascinating and enjoyable process. Thank you, Lena!

Karl Linstead Lena has worked with us for over eight years, becoming a valued and trusted member of the BDM team. Her help with achieving great design solutions is invaluable and a positive influence on us as we move our company forward. Her conscientious approach to work, creative energy and in-depth knowledge of print and design means we can entrust her with complex projects and focus our efforts on other priorities. And it goes without saying that she is extremely reliable in delivering on time!

I know Lena would be an exciting addition to any future client's team.

Christina Anderson Lena takes time to understand each of our projects, blowing us away with her interpretations with each new design.

From documentation panels and catalogues to postcard books and posters, Lena's designs are exquisite.

Thanks to the skill, precision in detail and professional quality of Lena's work, our exhibitions would not look out of place at the Royal Academy.

Michelle Potter We love working with Lena!

Not only is she incredibly creatively talented and knowledgeable, she is also very well organised. And she has a lot of patience. We often change our minds at the last minute and nothing seems to be a problem for her. Lena keeps us on track with reminders when a job is running so we don’t miss our deadlines. I would not hesitate to recommend Lena for any size job from a small ad to a full booklet.

Thank you Lena for all your great work over the last few years.

Jane Cullen MCIM I've worked with Lena on a number of occasions, most recently in 2010/11 when she designed a portfolio of posters for the public arts programme, Peninsula Arts.

Lena is always extremely professional; always spot on in interpreting the brief, providing the creativity we look for and delivering to deadline, if not before.

Simply, she made life that much easier.

Michelle Dudderidge We have worked closely with Lena since our initial introduction when she rebranded our company identity.

Since then, we have continued to work with her across all our organisations, where she has produced designs to cover every aspect of our business.

We have found Lena to be an invaluable, dedicated professional, committed to her role and quick to respond to our needs. She has a wonderful imagination and pays attention to detail, ensuring she always gets the message across through her artwork and imagery.
