I had worked with Phil for a number of years when I was a manager of DB Breweries here in Stoke. Phil left to pursue his own career - Designart Signs. I have used Phil and Design Art Signs exclusively for a number of years. His work ethics and quality of workmanship are outstanding and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

For over 15 years I have been using Phil from Designart Signs to do our sign writing and graphics for our buildings and vehicles for Cheapskates in Nelson.  Phil has also worked on other graphics for us for different signage and posters we have used over the years.  I have found Phil to be a very pleasant and happy person to deal with, our work is always on time and is always correct which is very important.
I have no problems in recommending Phil & Design Art Signs.
