Ugo Foods Group have built a very solid relationship with Upstairs Creative over the past few years. They provide us with infallible design work and are extremely reliable, professional and conscientious.

Most of all their designs are always fabulous and they even support us with branding advice, which we find very helpful. We would highly recommend them to anyone.
Brand Manager for Belazu at The Fresh Olive Company
I have worked with Derek and the Upstairs Creative team for over 3 years now on various Belazu and Fresh Olive packaging, POS and advertising projects. Derek has produced consistently great work for us over those 3 years – always knowing when to stick to a brief, or when to push the creative boundaries and always offers multiple-approach ideas and solutions to problems. Above all, Upstairs Creative are great at meeting tight deadlines and being flexible to adapt to changing business environments, they feel more part of the internal marketing team than external design agency.
Owner of Firefly PR
It’s very nerve wracking selecting a designer, more so when you are passionate about good design yourself. Will they understand what I’m trying to achieve and how will they interpret that? I approached Upstairs Creative to produce my logo. The results were quite simply outstanding, exceeding all my expectations. It is refreshing to find such a uniquely talented, intelligent design resource. Derek and team are wonderful people to work with and if you have a design project lined up, I would whole-heartedly recommend Upstairs Creative.
Director Cascade Hospitality Recruitment
We were recommended to work with Derek at Upstairs Creative when we were looking to re-brand our company Logo. For me this was a daunting experience, with my biggest fear being how do I translate the vision I have in my mind to someone who has no knowledge of my business?! Derek’s approach to this was outstanding, he really took the time to sit down and learn about my business, my vision and understand my passion. Through continuous communication, the end results were outstanding, I cannot tell you how impressed we are with how Derek had translated my vision into my perfect Logo & Design. Derek and the team went above and beyond to help us, nothing was ever too much for them. Without hesitation I will return to Derek and will certainly be recommending their services.
Product Development at Plum Baby
I have worked with Derek and the “Upstairs Creative” team on a number of food packaging projects and was impressed by their ability to translate ideas and concepts into a range of artwork designs demonstrating a good understanding of the practicalities of the medium and respecting clients demands to work within timescale and budget restraints. I would recommend them as a creative artwork resource for new start up or established companies.
Marketing Manager at Plum Baby
I have worked with Derek for over 3 years where he has designed all the packaging for Plum Baby. As a small design agency Upstairs Creative have always taken on the challenge of a new brief and delivered effective designs in keeping with the house style, while pushing the boundaries as we entered new categories. Derek is responsive and efficient, meeting deadlines under pressure and over all a pleasure to work with.
