Person and Job Title

After exploring relationships with several design firms, Mercer Design seemed like the perfect fit. Their design aesthetic aligned with ours, and their work ethic, positivity, and responsiveness made them exceptional partners. The fact that Mercer is based in the UK and we are in the US did not complicate our collaboration in the slightest. Hannah and Reuben took our vision and created the most beautiful magazine we have ever seen, the final result far surpassing anything we could have imagined.

From their first inception of my website to the most recent update, Mercer Design have been brilliant about keeping it up to speed with evolving technology while pushing the boundaries on the design side which is so important to reflect and project the personal and creative nature of my flower business. The only problem is that they do such a good job each time, I never want to move on!
