Testimonials

Some kind words from our valued clients.

To any prospective clients out there I can genuinely recommend Ben Hames and his team for your branding and visual communication needs. I don’t make this recommendation lightly but I do believe in giving credit where it’s due. You’ll get to work with Designers who are also Account Managers so nothing is “lost in translation”. You’ll also get to work with specialists in their field who aren’t afraid to question or push the boundaries. They truly are Design Partners.

Our business needed to present a fresh and more professional identity. The team at Axiom helped us to create a mature brand that held together the key themes we wanted to communicate to our clients. And our staff were very happy about the new look.

I’d happily recommend Axiom’s services when you’re ready to freshen up or a create a new corporate identity.

Lazer Safe has worked with Axiom over the past ten years for our general marketing requirements and last year we decided to completely refresh our company brand in conjunction with a complete update of our product range. Axiom really took the time to understand our new business direction and researched our market, customers and competitors to help guide us through the branding process. The quality of their work and design was outstanding and what they have delivered has exceeded our expectations from concept and design to printed and digital assets.

As the global industry leader in our field, this process has further elevated our company position and brand far beyond our competition. More than 99% of our business is conducted outside of Australia so our online presence and market perception is critical to our continued success. Since launching our updated branding and website in late 2014,  we have seen immediate results through contact with new customers and strengthened business relationships with our existing customer base.

We are currently working with Axiom on a number of projects including an online customer support module for our website, deployment of mobile applications and planning for a major European exhibition that we will participate in next year.

Special thanks to Ben, Carl, Sean and all the team at Axiom. We look forward to continue working together for years to come.

The WA Division of The Planning Institute of Australia have been working with Ben Hames and the team at Axiom since 2007. The Axiom team really impressed me from the start, no task is too difficult. They were diligent in getting to know our organisation and in gaining a clear understanding of our organisation needs. They then applied their creative magic, limitless energy, and professional work ethic to help us achieve our branding goals.

They have always been very responsive, and will go the extra mile to help us out, usually under tight deadlines. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Axiom.

At SatComms, we’ve been working with Axiom Design Partners since the inception of our brand. They have been hugely reactive, creative and professional, and the whole team quickly understands our needs and interprets them superbly – in our complex industry, that is a huge win for us!

The way our brand presence has evolved within our industry on a global level could not have been achieved without the input of Ben and his team, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

It’s been a real pleasure working and dealing with Axiom. Axiom have been involved since the inception of our business.

Being in the highly competitive home building industry, Ben and his team were able to translate our point of difference. The Axiom team understood the brief and completed the tasks in an efficient and proficient manner.

Appreciating the cash flow constraints of a newly established business, Axiom was able to provide us with options and a detailed plan than can be progressively executed as the business matures. We appreciated Axiom’s professionalism in helping us to promote our business.

I am very pleased to let you know that Fremantle Prison won the award for Best Interpretation of a place on the State Register at the Western Australian Heritage Awards last Thursday 10 June 2010 at Council House.  Our submission focused on interpretation signage developed for the site over the last year including: The Visitor Centre, The Terrace, Entry Complex signage and Tunnels Complex.

This was the first time the Interpretation category featured in the awards. As the inaugural winner Fremantle Prison now provides the benchmark for quality interpretation in the Western Australian heritage industry. Our submission has set the standard that future submissions will need to follow.

The quality of the design work and the close attention paid to conforming with Burra Charter principles in terms of fixings, materials and visuals were the main reason the project won the award.

The design work you have delivered over the last two years has been of the highest quality and has helped to create a world-class experience for visitors coming to Fremantle Prison. In particular the uniform aesthetic now featured on interpretive materials throughout the Prison has vastly improved the sense of identity and place experienced by visitors exploring the Prison.

I look forward to continuing a very beneficial working relationship with Axiom and the completion of current on-going projects including the Convict Depot, Sally Port Signage, and Fairbairn Street Interpretation Signage.

Gravity Crane Services required some serious brand definition to accompany a strategic change to the company which would see it repositioned and with its service offering re-defined. Axiom were contacted and given the brief to carry out a review of the existing brand and the industry sector and from that to design a new image more in line with the new strategy.

Having worked with Axiom on similar projects in other companies we were confident that our expectations would be met and Ben Hames and his team did not let us down.

A new vibrant, focussed image and tagline were conceived and the brand materials built around it. In addition to the creative work Axiom managed the various facets of the project well from creation through development and onto implementation always working with us in a collaborative manner and ensuring accurate and timely feedback on the progress being made. Axiom are very knowledgeable in what they do but also attentive and patient with the wishes of their clients who may not be as adept at the creative process.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Axiom to any prospective client requiring assistance in defining, articulating and displaying their brand strategy.

The LEARN Foundation for Autism has used Axiom for brand re-design, website design and ongoing design services. The services have been exemplary, the delivery of service outstanding and all in all the process has been joyful. Ben and his team took a lot of time to understand the nature of our specific service and what they delivered was product and concepts that fitted with our brief but in many cases extended us to think outside the box and as a result add significant value in the process.

What I’ve learnt from Ben and this process is “the power of the brand” and what good branding (with long term objectives) does to attracting and giving confidence to clients and stakeholders – just how good people feel when the quality of your service is reflected in all communications that your organisation puts out. We pride ourselves in producing the best service but we weren’t adequately communicating that in the quality of our communications.

What’s more….Ben and the team made it fun and met and exceeded our demanding deadlines at every occasion. We felt part of a team that understood the importance of what we do, working with very young children that requires a passion, dedication and attention to detail that goes beyond what most businesses require to achieve a great outcome.

I would not hesitate to recommend Ben and his team at Axiom – thanks guys, keep up the amazing work.

On behalf of the RIAWA Committee I would like to express our appreciation for all your assistance in preparing for our 2014 event. Your advice was very helpful and the designs were very effective and striking. As always your service was prompt and reliable. We were very pleased with the success of the event and are sure that your contribution was a big factor in that success.

Thank God, for Axiom!

With our new Interpretation Master Plan in hand I approached Axiom (highly recommended by our heritage consultants) to begin work on a way-finding and interpretation signage project. From the very first meeting with Ben and Sean in 2012 I knew we were in good hands, and the professionalism is evident in their other staff too.

New Norcia (Australia’s only monastic town) is a unique place of spiritual, cultural and historical significance. Having proved themselves with the concept design, fabrication and installation of the first stage of the signage project, we have commissioned the exemplary services of Axiom in other projects for this very complex site, including the design and production of a new suite of brochures, and the design and installation of a poignant display in the Mission Cottages Interpretation Centre.

In this bicentennial year of the birth of our founder Rosendo Salvado, Axiom have risen to the occasion with unflagging zeal and made a significant contribution to the design and installation of a very fine exhibition ‘In searching of Salvado’ in our museum and art gallery and produced an exquisite souvenir booklet to commemorate the extraordinary life of this missionary monk.

Axiom are worthy of the reputation they have earned and they do their work with sensitivity and respect for this unique site within agreed timelines and budgets. I recommend Axiom without reservation.

As project manager for a not-for-profit organisation, it is my job to communicate with the many people involved in the development of a successful project. Both staff and volunteers are required to come together to bring a vision into a reality. For any graphic design or branding company, this can provide challenges along the way, particularly when producing a result that meets with everyone’s ultimate vision, and meeting the often short timeline.

In the development of the branding for the 2014 Salvado Bicentenary Year for the Benedictine monks of New Norcia, which included the creative development of the Bicentenary Souvenir Booklet, many didatics for the In Search of Salvado exhibition, and all the other promotional material supporting this commemorative year, Ben Hames and his team were stars! They listened, they were open to feedback, and they produced alternative options in a time frame which enabled us to ultimately meet what we thought would be an impossible deadline.

I have been very proud to show people around the exhibition, encourage them to visit our website and to distribute our promotional material. The quality is first class.

Thank you to Axiom Design Partners for making my job so much easier and providing me with a result that I am delighted to be associated with.

The most impressive thing about Axiom is your professionalism, whether it’s the work or service, it’s always been a pleasure. Your website is no exception and it beautifully demonstrates the evolution of the relationship and the product. Well done and we look forward to at least another 11 years. Cheers!

It’s always been a pleasure to work with you guys. It’s creative, professional, friendly, candid and entirely unpretentious; just the way we like it. There’s such a clear understanding of our needs and preferences that it really is at a point where I can bullet point some brief notes for a new ad or display and you’re on the money from the first draft.

Thanks heaps!
