Vicky designed the visual branding which included advertising, leaflets and bus livery. She then carefully planned two launch events within record time in both Worthing and Brighton, carefully selecting the guest list, venue and itinerary for maximum positive impact. We’re delighted with the quality and organisation of both launches, the visual branding, the pre and post launch marketing.

I am happy to recommend The Brand Surgery for their brand development and launch event services.”
