A massive thank you to Ben at Pure Design International. Based in Grasse, Pure Design is one of the leading English speaking advertising and website design agencies in the South of France. Ben has been instrumental in the design and production of the program and other material for the Mimosa Ball. His tireless work, creativity, efficiency and most of all patience is a credit to his company. Will definitely recommend you to the business I know down here as will the rest of the team too.

Receptive, Creative, Effective, Intuitive, Professional…….just a handful of words to describe my experience working with Ben at Pure Design!!!! I had very firm ideas about the image, layout and content of my desired website and Ben completely understood the mood, style and direction I was wanting. We reached the goal working as a team which was important as communication was always at the forefront, Ben is able to interpret ideas on to the page and contribute his knowledge and experience to the project. I would highly recommend Pure Design and have done to several companies and agencies already. A great experience and a great guy!!

From the moment I spoke to Ben and then met him I immediately felt ‘here is someone I can do business with both now and in future’. I know that my web site is going to evolve and wanted to find someone that would help me grow my business through my main trading window of a web site – and it was very important that I found a long term person – that is based here and I can explain my thoughts and ideas and that would understand my needs initially and then work with to evolve the site as my business grows now and for the future. I found immediately Ben to be responsive, professional and having an immediate understanding of my ideas – so the site was built by Ben – but allowing me influence in its design and structure (which I believe to be very rare) the site was not just picked off the shelf by Ben – also the back-end control was really impressive (something you do not see) I think this simply comes from both experience and having a logical commercial brain – which Ben certainly has. Ben has also been excellent regarding support issues – always responding quickly and efficiently – with solutions – not just re the web site – but other commercial issues. So I would thoroughly recommend Ben and his colleagues – and certainly I and my clients have been very impressed with the site – and I know I have found someone I trust – and will help me grow my business in the future as it has done over the last year.

We found Ben “Pure Design” through a lot of people recommending him on a Facebook group. Working with Ben was not only seamless but it far exceeded our expectations. From the first day, Ben was receptive to our needs and objectives for our website. We are very happy with the results therefore we would highly recommend him and we will use PURE DESIGN services in the future for sure!
Maria Kenny

Director, PK Construction & Renovations

We first employed the services of Pure Design early in 2005 when we started national press advertising. Since that time, Ben has assisted us in the revamp of our corporate literature, as well as new designs for our sales leaflet, press advertising and exhibition stands.Throughout our time working with Pure Design we have always found them to be patient, especially with the multitude of changes we always require, and very easy to communicate with. We feel they understand our business almost as well as we do.

They look fantastic and convey exactly the right message for my business as well as looking very professional – which was exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much for all of your help. It has been a pleasure dealing with Pure Design International, from my first phone call you made the process extremely straightforward coupled with great ideas and interpretations for the design work. As a result, I have ended up with a far superior product than I could have imagined – hopefully it’s a good omen for the future!

Pure Design came highly recommended via a number of sources. I was intrigued by the overwhelmingly positive reports I had heard and decided to approach Ben with my business card ideas. Ben gave me creative input, very definite and straightforward feedback, the cards were redesigned, approved, and were delivered to me within a matter of days and I’m thrilled with the result. I’m already looking forward to working on further projects with Pure Design.

New to living in PACA and having just set up a UK business, I was facing the challenge of how to manage our graphic design work requirements and literature production remotely, based on all my contacts being in the UK. As you may imagine, I was thrilled to find a professional English-speaking graphic design agency here on the Riviera.

I have worked with quite a number of UK graphic studios over the years I have been frustrated with having been subjected to quite a lot of overpriced  and somewhat underwhelming design work.

Both my business partner and I are delighted with creative work we have had through from Ben and team; it reflects the nature of our business and the image we are hoping to portray to our target customers. The process has been fast, simple and stress-free.

James Bowman

Ben from Pure Design worked pure magic! I found Ben and Pure Design in the business pages on the Ango Info site. I had decided to tweek up my blog to make it more professional and jazzy looking. I had been let down by another company, so it was very refreshing to have Ben return my call straight away and then very quickly do what I asked and to my budget. I was impressed with Ben’s no nonsence approach and we had my new look blog up and running in a matter of days. The cost was very reasonable and I am happy with the results. Thank you Pure Design for turning a frustrating situation into a positive one.

I would highly recommend Pure Design. I ended up using him after having used two after companies who I was unhappy with, mostly due to their costs. Ben is the most efficient, the most creative and a great respecter of deadlines. I only wish I had gone to him first.

On behalf of the entire Tap It team I wanted to thank you again for all the effort you put into making sure we got our marketing materials on time as well as facilitating the storage of the brochures for us. Everyone was impressed with the brochures! Thanks again.
Deborah Smith

Sales Manager, TapIt

Our requirement to produce, overnight, a daily newsletter for distribution at the world’s premier real estate event MIPIM, was a challenge I wasn’t certain we’d be able to pull off when we first began investigations. We made contact with Pure Design International having found them online, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Having had no experience of working together previously, there is a certain level of risk involved on both sides. However, the professionalism and level of service provided from the outset gave me confidence that Pure Design would be able to deliver, and they surpassed themselves. Despite last minute changes to stock and artwork that was still being finalised up until 10pm on some days, Pure Design and its partners delivered extremely high quality results on time, every time. The personal level of service provided by Ben (including translation!) made what would have been an extremely stressful project much simpler. The newsletter was exceptionally well received by our MIPIM partners and my sincere thanks to Ben for making what seemed an impossible task a reality. I look forward to being able to work with Pure Design on other projects in the future.

Launching Ellisium was about concept and brand and Pure Design came up with some great designs which worked perfectly with our marketing strategy. We also needed a website that we could update quickly and easily and Pure Design came up with an effective but easy to use back office system which enhances our SEO activities. We will continue to work with the team at Pure Design and their input into our ongoing marketing strategy is always valuable.

We were looking for an english speaking webdesigner so we selected Pure Design to deal with our advertising when we arrived in France. Pure Design dealt with everything relating to the launch of our new business from logo design, brand name, signage, website design and stationery. As advertising is very important to Eden we have entrusted this important work to Pure Design who ensure that we have the best possible advertising our budget can afford. As a business, we can fully recommend Ben who has looked after us so well.

Pure Design International were extremely professional and innovative in their design services. It was refreshing to work with a company that appreciated the pressures on a new business and know how important it was to get it right and get it right quickly.
Emma Hirst

Director, Compass Ltd

After researching designers on the internet, I was recommended to Pure Design by a friend. I have found them to be extremely flexible which is essential in the modern world of advertising. They took care of everything for me from logo design to web design. Some of their ideas have been fantastic and very ’outside the box’. I have recommended them several times since my website and business logo was designed and would have no hesitation to do so again.
