"From start to finish, Buzzword were integral in helping us create a dynamic brand reflecting the vibrant community-feel of our new dual-campus college. They understood not only the brief but interpreted our vision and nuances of a newly merged college to deliver a clear narrative. Nothing was lost in translation.

Their skilled team worked with our own marketing team over a six-month process, working on a new Havant & South Downs College identity which we wanted to be forward-thinking, confident and unique. Buzzword delivered that for us and helped us to shape a brand which tells our students that Havant & South Downs College is the first choice for further education in the area."

Mike Gaston, Principal & CEO, Havant & South Downs College

Buzzword has provided creative and graphic design support to the Royal Naval Benevolent Trust for many years. Their customer inter-face is second to none, they take nothing for granted, are very competitive and are continually innovating to provide the best possible service. We have both market tested and competitively tendered for service support in this area and Buzzword has come out on top each time. Provincially based but with an eye on a nationwide market, they provide a top quality service in all respects; in short, we are very satisfied and are very happy to endorse and recommend Buzzword.

Stephen Farrington, Chief Executive, Royal Naval Benevolent Trust

I have worked with Buzzword for over ten years, not only because they are professional, innovative and creative, but also because they immerse themselves in your brand to truly understand your business and target audiences.

Sarah Bradbury, Marketing Manager, Dentists' Provident

BBC Motion Gallery works with Buzzword because they deliver creative ideas and executions to budget and on time. It would be very easy for us to work with a big London-based agency but we'd rather get top-notch personal service from a team who understands our business.

Paul Maidment, Business Development Director, BBC Motion Gallery

I have worked with Buzzword for nearly 3 years now and cannot recommend them more highly. They always make me feel that I’m their most important client and what’s even better is that they are absolutely lovely people to do business with!

Karie Wright, HR & Admissions Officer, Chichester Free School

I’ve now worked with Buzzword on two rebranding projects, the British Dental Industry Association and the BDIA Dental Showcase. Buzzword has delivered on both campaigns. Added to that, their service has been excellent.

Dianne Gettinby, Marketing Manager, BDIA

I have worked with Buzzword for a number of years and find them very reliable, flexible and always ensure that our deadlines are met. Their work is at the highest standard and the team is dynamic, energetic and very creative - making it a pleasure to work with them.
