Marc Burville-Riley has worked with us since Rising Stars first began publishing resources for schools. He created the Rising Stars logo, designed our first products and also created our first marketing materials that launched Rising Stars so successfully. He was very much responsible for the overall ‘look and feel’ of Rising Stars in the early days.
I would highly recommend Marc for concept development, branding and cover design, software design and design of online and print marketing materials. He combines a strong ‘marketing’ sense with the ability to produce great product design – unusual skills to find together. He is also efficient and works well as part of our team.
Marc Burville-Riley has worked on many books for us, creating both innovative cover designs and imaginative inside spreads. He’s the go-to guy when we’re commissioning a particularly challenging cover design that presents no immediate solution, as he comes up with fantastic visual ideas that tie to the book’s content and are commercial in approach. On inside design, he’s especially good at laying out texts with a more demanding brief, working with us on ‘letters books’ such as The Timewaster Letters and the integrated newspaper articles/running commentary humour book by Dave Spikey, He Took My Kidney, Then Broke My Heart. In addition to his excellent design skills, Marc is also a joy to work with – fun, willing to go the extra mile, and hard-working.
Thanks for the fantastic job designing and creating our website and marketing emails. We have had a lot of extremely positive reaction to both – in large part down to their looking so much more interesting than those of our competition. Thanks once again for such attentive support and real personal thought – great job!
Marc and Louisa understood the complexity of our new business strategy and successfully redefined our brand and purpose, creating an impactful website and design system.
