We used to run all of our design work through a large design and print company. It was fine, however depending on what other work they had on at the time the turnarounds were very inconsistent. Their design team also had strict 9 – 5 hours, so if you needed something done urgently overnight it wasn’t going to happen. Bridget seems to run flexible work hours, often working at night which suits us working in a fast-paced retail environment with ad-hoc urgent jobs popping up.If something was urgent, I would let Bridget know and it would be in my inbox in the morning.
However, the best thing about working with Bridget is using her experience and creative input.
Quite often I would roughly brief a job that I would have a visual of in my head, but is hard to communicate via email. Bridget generally understands what I am asking for first time, supplies the job with quick turnaround and additional concepts based on her suggestions, which most of the time are better than what we had originally had in mind. With this, my briefs to Bridget have become more vague overtime, as I know she understands our brand and it’s in our best interests to use her creative experience and flair whenever we can. This is something that I didn’t rely on with the previous design and print company, there were often frustrations and multiple back and forth communication until we would have to settle on a design as we would run out of time.
Bridget has consistently produced great bespoke creative for our national and local campaigns, keeping things fresh and exciting for our customer while still staying true to our brand.
Bridget is also very transparent with the time that she works as well. If something only took her 20 minutes she would only charge for 20 minutes. Where as other designers that I have worked with have a minimum fee regardless of the job.
I really enjoy working with Bridget and feel she is a real asset to the marketing side of our business.
Bridget was recommended to us through a friend who had used her branding package for her own business. Bridget 100% captured the essence of our company with the branding. She listened and took note of our vision, and developed aesthetically beautiful and conceptually thoughtful designs which exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend her branding package which is highly encompassing and provides a variety of designs across a wide range of media. We were so impressed with Bridget and her work, that we asked for her help with other projects. This has been an excellent experience and we will continue to work with Bridget in the future.
We engage Bridget at Creative Bridge on a regular basis to create branding assets for our clients at Ziba Creative. The creative that Bridget produces never fails to exceed client expectations and it's always evident that she has put a huge amount of thought into creating bespoke design that she tailored to each client and their business. Bridget never misses a deadline and is an absolute breeze to work with.
Bridget captured the very essence of my business so beautifully in my branding and has been an ongoing source of guidance and support as I've embarked on growing my business. She is incredibly talented, and paired with her intuitive creativity, she really is the best creative side-kick.
Am absolutely thrilled Jasmine suggested you as what you have achieved is perfect. You really captured the essence of this new baby of mine. Thank you thank you thank you. It was love at first sight / just so easy and here I was stressing out about the project ❤️

"Thanks for looking out for me. You really are a great operator Bridget."
Professionalism, quality, responsiveness & value.
We approached Bridget to design our in store nationwide Christmas campaign creative.
The brief was to create a family of illustrations to be used in both 2D and 3D applications in our showroom environment. She delivered us several beautifully presented concepts to choose from - sophisticated, unique, easy to implement at store level creating maximum impact for very little cost. In short - Bridget nailed the brief, exceeding our expectations with her speed, creativity and professionalism. We would not hesitate to recommend Bridget for any commercial project.

Bridget oversees all marketing graphics for our brand and she does an absolutely brilliant job every time.
She is very talented but also extremely professional.
I have worked with Bridget for just under four years, she is an exceptional creative and her understanding of brand design and conceptual design is second to none. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a dedicated, passionate and organised Creative Director.

I had the pleasure of working with Bridget at ASG (as her client) when she was a Senior Designer at the Group's creative division Spark! Bridget is incredibly innovative designer who has a unique ability to take the vaguest brief and deliver creativity that doesn't just meet but totally exceeds the expectations. Bridget has great attention to detail and she never seems to be fazed by the task at hand - no matter how tight a deadline. To sum it up: a designer many clients can only dream of!

Bridget did my wedding invitations and there were beautiful. It is a pleasure to deal with her and i am very impatient to see the design my new order :)
I was working with Bridget in connection with brand and design work for a fast casual concept. She picked up the baton from the agency that had created the brand identity and core assets – and was very quick to understand the essence of the brand and capable of offering sound advise on direction and creative style that was in line with brand ID. Given her extensive experience Bridget has an excellent intuitive understanding and ability to bring brands to life and maximize public appeal. It is without hesitation that I highly recommend her.
Amazingly creative. She really understands a brief well and brings the most wonderful ideas to you as a client. Her creativity and work ethic makes hiring her a dream!

We originally got in touch with Bridget to design our wedding invitations some time ago and had planned not to hire anyone for the other bits and pieces such as menus, place holders etc and just do DIY for the remainder. However, when we saw Bridget's work on the invites and had received numerous compliments on them we decided to go the whole hog. Bridget's ideas are beautifully simple and fresh but very original and she is lovely to work with; she was always so responsive and seemed to appreciate the ideas I had in mind even when I knew I wasn't articulating them at all well. Her pricing is also very competitive and we really appreciated her flexibility in allowing for various inevitable changes to be made to table plans etc in the weeks before the wedding. Bridget also went the extra mile in liaising with our local printer (being abroad meant we didn't have the time for certain things to be printed by Bridget's printer and shipped) to ensure they understood the best paper textures and sizes to suit the designs. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Bridget's work.
I can highly recommend Bridget and Bridge Creative. She completely understood what I was hoping to achieve with the branding of my new company and delivered a fantastic logo which has subsequently received a number of compliments. I would absolutely use Bridge Creative again!!

Bridget is always a joy to work with - she's very creative, has a great eye, is always responsive and full of ideas. She also has a lot of contacts in the printing world, and for me was able to source great quality final printed work at very reasonable prices. In my experience, everything with Bridget is handled in as professional a manner as you could hope for - her pricing is transparent, she always makes clear what the next steps will be and is always a pleasure to talk to. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
