“I was looking for someone to design and produce a large poster/banner for Peel carnival and was fortunate enough to be introduced to Gary from GCDesigns. After the initial consultation with him where I gave him the design brief for what I was looking for he very quickly had the design ready for me. The friendly, professional and speedy service offered by Gary and GCDesigns is exactly what I was looking for. We went on to finish second in the carnival and I would not hesitate to recommend GCDesigns to anyone looking for an affordable, friendly, professional design service.”


“I started a small cupcake business a few months ago & was looking to increase my brand awareness & provide a visual platform for my products, in the form of a website. Having no technical knowledge myself I was fortunate to be introduced to GCDesigns.im. I was most impressed with their friendly & helpful approach as I was guided through every step of the process from registering a domain name to producing a clean, modern informative website to enable me to promote my company. GCDesigns even created an classic eye catching design which I now use as my logo.

I have been extremely impressed with GCDesigns & would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone who is considering a website or logo design.”

He is reliable and punctual for all appointments.
His ideas are innovative.
He listens to what’s required and can work to deadlines.
His costs are very reasonable compared to other companies.

“The Manx Operatic Society has worked along side Gary, now of GCDesigns, over the last 8 years. We have found to be extremely helpful and amenable in the service that he has given. He has designed the last 10 shows artwork and has been fantastic, with great attention to detail, patience and communication between us.

When we needed someone to help maintain our new website, it seemed fitting to use GCDesigns as this was also a service that he offered. A fantastic job and very open to quick changes that needed to be made at short notice.

An excellent, professional service and we would recommend GCDesigns to anyone.”

“I want to express my sincere gratitude for the exceptional work that GCDesigns have done in designing my business logos. Once I sent them a vague idea as to how I wish my logo to look like, GCDesigns provided me with many logo design concepts and artwork. Speedy turnaround, very friendly customer service and prompt response to my requests which has made me happy and satisfied beyond belief.

My logo is my company’s biggest asset. It is invaluable. It is the mark of my brand, the heart of my marketing, and the identity of my business. My logo is my company’s first and last impression to customers.
