I am very grateful to Sanphire Design for creating the brilliant logo image for Celebrating the Irish School of Ecumenics at 50. Lisa is not only a great designer but also a very thoughtful person. During a couple of the Zoom sessions, and through several strings of emails, she gave great attention to what we were describing, and helped us to visualise what we want to express, with great insight. I was also impressed by her efficiency and care. Lisa was always very responsive, and delivered outstanding work, which satisfied everyone working with me on the project.

Lisa and Caroline are the creative and articulate faces of Sanphire Design. They spent a great deal of time getting to know Blue Moon Event Design; what we do and our core values before transforming our old website and significantly boosting our Google presence online. We are very pleased with the result and look forward to working together to develop the site further. Our business is all about imagery, trend driven and constantly moving so it was important to us to find a web designer who would be open to change, experimenting and working with us for the long haul. Thank goodness we found Lisa and her team!

The Sanphire Design team – and in particular Lisa Catherwood – helped us to develop our web page starting with not much more than a logo. Lisa was very thorough in asking all the right questions to develop what we think is a dynamic site with a nice blend of images and text. Their ongoing aftercare is amazing with nothing being too big or to small to give their almost immediate attention. I would highly recommend them.

It is with very great pleasure that I email to record how thoroughly satisfactory it was working with you to create a Logo to mark the celebrations of the Irish School of Ecumenics at 50. It was an experience that demonstrated superbly your design skills, your capacity and willingness to think outside the box and your patience with a small group that took some time to come to a common mind. What you have produced is being greeted with a WOW by those who are now seeing it. Thank you so much for all your help

From the first 5 minutes of chatting with Lisa Catherwood about what we at POWER BOOKER wanted from our website, I knew that it would be delivered and enhanced. We are delighted with the professional approach they have taken and the guidance provided. I would highly recommend Sanphire Design.

Sanphire is a company to do business with in confidence of success, excellent value – and exemplary values
Working with Sanphire and specifically with Lisa Catherwood was a fruitful experience of collaboration with professionals in a spirit of professionalism, efficiency and courtesy.
The purpose – of redesigning the logo of the Irish School of Ecumenics to mark its 50th anniversary – was fulfilled in every aspect, by Sanphire, with attention attuned to vision and to every detail of the project. Lisa Catherwood grasped the concept of ISE’s logo and motto, devised and revised design alternatives in double-quick fashion. Throughout, Lisa displayed patience and skill in ensuring that the diverse views could contribute to a fuller harmony, in resonance with idea of ‘ISE at 50’, integrating its perennial values and openness to new challenges in the field of learning , dialogue and peacebuilding. She was imaginative in listening, testing alternative possibilities, prepared to go the extra mile without being asked, and with a calm facility for harmonisation and consensus. She kept faith with the agreed timeline and end-date, ensuring that the ultimate colourful design would impress – with its gracious intimation of memory and hope, and with word and symbol in balance and concert. The design is already fulfilling its purpose of en-joining others, inviting them into the celebratory journey through this Jubilee Year of celebration of the Irish School of Ecumenics and its ongoing journey. Sanphire is a company to do business with in confidence of success, excellent value – and exemplary values.

I have worked with Sanphire Design for 3 years and during this time I have been consistently impressed with the versatility and creativity of the design as well as the extensive knowledge shown and generously shared. Lisa takes time to listen to your ideas and asks questions to draw out your unique story and demonstrates it clearly and intuitively in your web design. She has also provided a responsive and professional hosting service. Highly recommended. I love my website and it gets a brilliant response from my increasing numbers of clients.

Lisa is a customer of Sprint Auto (Caroline is now also) and in casual conversation I happened to ask what she did….it all began there. So glad because now we have an amazing, professional website.
Both Lisa and Caroline are a joy to work with. The design of our website was developed to fit in with the garage’s requirements and there were also links added to social media platforms like Facebook and Google.. Definitely, with their up to date knowledge and advice we couldn’t be happier with the end result. Many thanks to the Sanphire Team.

Salto Gym have been a client of Sanphire Design now for approximately three years and during this time we have been extremely satisfied by the excellent and efficient services provided. Lisa and her team are very dedicated and passionate about what they do which is exemplified by their unrivalled customer support. Having a thorough understanding of our specific business needs has been the key to our great working relationship so long may this continue!

From start to finish, my experience with Sanphire was exceptional. Lisa and her team guided me through every step with patience, professionalism, meticulous attention to detail and a knack for getting precisely the feel I wanted for my website.
Anything I didn’t understand was explained clearly and the post-launch support has been very useful. The result is I’ve had comments like: “It looks really good. Very impressed”, “Classy!”, “Wow, the website is amazing. It looks so magical!” and “Absolutely super website”.
For the quality of service and design/artistic expertise provided, Sanphire is excellent value.
But, the MOST important thing is that I am over the moon with it all (website, business cards and correspondence cards). Thank you Sanphire for working your magic.
When I was looking for a company to build my website and create a logo for my marine education initiative, Saltwater Life, a personal ethical approach was key. I wanted to be able to discuss my ideas and my work and have a say in the development of the site and logos. Sanphire Design ticks all of these boxes. They are fantastic to work with, always attentive, going above and beyond what I expected, delivering on what I wanted but also offering a great insight into additional features that I was unaware of, which ultimately optimized what I was trying to achieve.

It has been a joy to work with Sanphire Design developing the image for my Ballet School since its early days to now. Lisa has the skills to take care of the technical side of my website and the artistic talent to create the art work in logos, information folders, posters, banners, cards and certificates. I think the most exciting aspect of Sanphire Design is its amazing ability to reach the essence of my ballet school and bring it to a fully functioning visual masterpiece.

I have used the team at Sanphire Design for both of my businesses. The service and attention to detail is excellent. Their design ideas are innovative and eye-catching. I receive compliments all the time about my website and logo. I would recommend Sanphire Design most highly.
