A Good Word

I'm thankful to have worked with some wonderful people during my career and I pinch myself to think these people enjoyed working with me as much as I enjoyed working with them! Below you'll find their testimonials to my character and work.

 

Shaba Derazi

Founder of Derazi Homes

"Kirsty was very patient with us in the creation of our company website. We wanted a site that was on-trend, yet reflected the professionalism and attention to detail that we provide our clients. From the moment we hired Kirsty, we were impressed with her ability to listen to our company story and reflect those beliefs within the site, both visually and verbally. We will continue to work with Kirsty, and recommend her to anyone in need of a true professional.

CO-FOUNDER of ACTORS BRIDGE ENSEMBLE THEATRE

"Kirsty provided fresh insights, targeted creative and endless good humor to our website redesign. She was able to take a very complicated and outdated website and convert it to something streamlined, effective and beautiful. I hear from dozens of people a week about how much they love the new design. In the process, I felt like she cared about my company the way I do. She made my project her priority, and I could feel the passion and dedication she put into the work. The results reflect that passion and dedication. I will work with Kirsty again every chance I get!"

Mark Robertson, PCC

Executive Coach, Workshop Leader and Speaker

"I was hesitant to tackle a new website given my past frustrations with creating one. However, Kirsty made the process much easier to take on and I’m very pleased with the final product. I’ve received great feedback on my new website thus far as well, which is affirming. Kirsty’s style was very open, easy and flexible, which made it easy for me to collaborate with her, which was exactly what I needed. And, she knows when and where to push when it’s needed so things ultimately get completed. I chose to write my content, which was a very difficult process, but she was very patient and encouraging along the way which I needed. All in all I’m extremely pleased with the site, it’s just what I wanted – something clean, concise, easy to navigate and most of all reflective of me in a very personal way."

"We absolutely love working with Kirsty because she always makes us sound good! As a new company specializing in design, not words, putting our brand voice on paper for the first time was a daunting task.

We are always excited to collaborate with Kirsty. Her passion and excitement for what she does never ceases to inspire."

"Kirsty embodies an exceptional combination of clarity, creativity, focus, flexibility and infectious joy. She transformed what was becoming a daunting task—writing case studies for my portfolio—into a process that deepened my sense of purpose and confidence in my abilities. She exceeded my expectations tenfold. I cannot recommend her highly enough. I believe she would absolutely excel at whatever effort she put her mind to—and make it a delightful process for everyone involved."

Ian Craig

HEAD OF SCHOOL AT HARDING ACADEMY

"We came to Kirsty Hughan with a concept for our new admission's view book, which is an essential reference for prospective students and families, and she immediately took the time to understand our school culture, program and message to find out the ways we wanted to be represented. She was a thoughtful listener and a very creative manager of the project, and all on a very short timeline. Not to mention she and her team being really pleasant to work with! We could not be more pleased with the final result."
