So what do my clients have to say about it all?…

Jane Collins:

“Books arrived safely today- I am absolutely delighted with how they look – I can’t thank you enough – you’ve made my dream come true :)”

Michael Bavidge:

“Thank you for all your creative work. It has been a trouble-free pleasure working with you.”

Jennifer Henwood:

“Sarah is an immensely talented hard-working illustrator. She has captured the true spirit of my book series and has brought my childhood riding school vision to life with some beautiful images.  I cried tears of joy the day my books arrived.  They are so beautifully designed and illustrated and the colours are just gorgeous.  She has enabled me to realise a dream of seeing my books in print and for that I will be eternally grateful.” visit

“Hello Sarah, Just a little note to say it was a pleasure to meet you on Saturday. I enjoyed what was one of the quirkiest events I’ve ever done, and met some nice people too!
I have looked through your very substantial website, you do have a very positive feel about everything in it. I do wish you continued success in all your work. All the best, Simon”

Marion Adams:

“Sarah was lovely to work with and keen to make sure that the illustrations were a perfect match for the story. It’s obvious that she really cares about her work and wants you, the author, to be happy with the final results. Go To Sleep! has already received many five-star reviews on Amazon, as well as five stars from Readers’ Favorite, with reviewers saying that it is ‘beautifully illustrated’. Thank you, Sarah!”

Stuart Neath:

Thank you, Sarah, for the amazing work you did on the illustrations for my book.  Working with you has been so easy thanks to your enthusiasm, flexibility, support, professionalism and, of course, the amazing quality of your work.  Thank you so much

Elizabeth Rickard:

“Thank you so much for all your hard work. I really can’t say how grateful I am. You completely brought the book to life in just the way I wanted.”

Darron Jon Love:

Sarah’s advice has been invaluable, she could have just illustrated my first attempt but knew there was more to be had from the story and pointed me towards the right help. Sarah loves her work, her friendly ‘can do’ approach is reassuring whether you’re on your first or tenth book. She quickly understood what I wanted to achieve and the look I was after. Sarah kept me informed and brought me into the whole process, we changed things and sometimes changed them again but I never felt that I couldn’t ask for anything, nothing seemed to be a burden for her.”

Mick Reynolds:

Wow, this is amazing, has turned out brilliant. I never thought it would look this good when first started the project. Thank you for all your work on this, I’m really glad you enjoyed working on it.

Barry Walton – Discovery Leisure:

“Sarah’s re-branding of my business has given it a much needed fresh and quirky feel. She provided us with an extremely friendly courteous and efficient service and injected an energy into the project, that only Sarah could.” –

Anne Ayre:

This is fabulous! Absolutely perfect – kids will love it! THANK YOU, Sarah! Much appreciated.

Jane Archer-Wilms & Marlies Veenhof – Rembrandt & Kiki Books:

“Thank you so much, Sarah! What a fantastic set of illustrations for the first in our series of children’s books. You’ve been professional and creative throughout; what more can one ask? We are delighted with your original ideas and inspired design work; we can’t wait to work with you on the second book!”

cucumbersDarren Pascoe – ‘Red Rabbit’:

“WOW! Love it! I’m so happy with what you’ve produced- and with so little input from me (a good thing I think!). FANTASTIC!!! THANK YOU :)”

Justine Rogers, Dainty Dizzy:

“When we first contacted Sarah, Dainty Dizzy was a concept;  an idea to be shaped into a brand.  Sarah took this idea and illustrated it perfectly….and our brand look and feel was born.  Her creativity tempered by the fact that she listens to your brief works perfectly for us and our brand wouldn’t be the same without her ongoing input. Just fab xx”

“Got home tonight and the books had arrived. Absolutely love them. My girlfriend loves your illustrations.”

paints-wtLucy; Get Active:

“Sarah is professional, friendly and very knowledgeable, we had a Skype conference call with her and rambled about what we wanted not really knowing and she delivered 100% with a new logo that was spot on! We can’t recommend her enough!”

Craig Green; Clickety Books:

“Sarah is an extremely talented designer and illustrator. She has that rare gift of being able to find something in your business or character that you never knew existed, then creates something wonderful from this aspect. She is also punctual, professional, honest and personable.” Sarah, aka the Happy Designer, is a gem.  She is a gifted illustrator, a fabulous designer and all-round whirlwind of creative delights. I have worked closely with Sarah on a number of projects over the last couple of years. Most recently, she orchestrated and implemented a huge personal project from its birth.  She created a stunning brand ID, designed a spectacular website and then imagined, designed and illustrated the first 5 children’s books for my publishing house. Not bad eh! She has a keen eye for the quirky detail, she is punctual and a joy to work with. I simply cannot praise her enough.

Donna Purvis:

“I was so nervous ringing you as i’ve never done anything like this before, but you were so friendly and put me completely at ease.”

slugPaolo Pini;  Step Up To Languages:

“Just a quick email to thank you very much for the brilliant logos you have created for our Lingo Angel brand. The logos are absolutely fantastic, they are spot on brief and are even better than we imagined! You delivered them on time, for the price we agreed and have been accessible and friendly throughout the whole process. I could not of asked for anything more! You’re an angel!” –

Katie Jarvis; Fancy Prints:

“Sarah was great to work with, she understood what I was looking for and produced a fantastic logo for me.  She is very approachable and friendly – I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.”


“Thank you very much for the logo design that you created for me, just what I was looking for, the time that you spent editing colours was also appreciated. Would definitely recommend you. Thanks again.”

painting-wtMichelle Hawkins, Director, The Flying DoDo:

“If you’re wondering whether or not to use the happydesigner, I hope my recommendation will persuade you! I cannot fault Sarah for her professionalism, enthusiasm and talent. I now feel really proud of showcasing my work and it’s added the credibility I needed when starting my own company.”

daisyJennie Walker:

“It has been an exciting experience to work with Sarah Wills on my very first Branding campaign to support my music and my debut album, Night Flight to London.  Sarah has given me her best work, with an attitude that makes me look forward to each and every interaction. Her work on my artists website, business cards, promotional materials, merchandise, and album design has brought nothing but compliments. Distance has not been a barrier, as a New York City-based artist. I feel like she is right there with me with each and every design project. I look forward to a long and rewarding relationship as we evolved my brand in the marketplace.”

Jo at Treworgey:

“Sarah delivers great value for money. A truly creative individual who is able to grasp concepts quickly and is a pleasure to work with”

Richard Quick:

“I’ve worked with Sarah on a number of design projects, because I know she can bring a lot of creativity to the table. Sarah is a very gifted designer and illustrator and an absolute pleasure to work with. She’s bubbly and energetic and that comes across in her designs and illustrations.
Importantly, she’s not “up here own backside” like a lot of designers are .. it won’t be a struggle working with Sarah, it’ll be a pleasure. Can’t recommend enough.”

Jon Linklater Johnson:

“Sarah is always excited and vocal about the projects she works on. She is great at communicating with clients and is comfortable working in a variety of styles.”

People and Gardens:
