We’ve worked with the team at Rufus for many years on branding, catalogues and our website. They have always been able to introduce fresh ideas and painlessly manage each project from concept to print. This is especially so with our annual 500+ page product Handbook – a document which sets the highest standard in our industry sector. As an added bonus they’re all a great bunch to work with.

We have worked with Rufus over the last few years on numerous projects from creating the school website, a promotional school DVD, newsletters, numerous promotional materials and training for our staff. We have always received an extremely professional service and no job has been too big for them - no matter how tight we make the deadlines! A warm, friendly and experienced staff that always make you feel at ease. Would highly recommend them to anyone.

I’d like to thank all at Rufus for helping us with our first foray into the world of cyber communications. For a simple gob doctor like me this has always been a bit of a mystery, but you made it a much simpler process and I’m absolutely delighted with the result. And possibly even more important, I’m really pleased that it is viewed as a rolling project, so we can develop the website in future with guidance from yourselves. Thanks to all involved in developing the Durham City Smiles site, and you may wish to know that I have no hesitation in recommending Rufus, and have already done so.
— Graeme Dentith, Director, Durham City Smiles
Thank you for helping to create the interactive calendar which NomadE5 used recently in its countdown to an Audit Commission Inspection. The calendar appeared on the front page of our intranet for the five weeks before inspection. It helped the whole staff team to inject a bit of fun into their preparation for inspection through multiple choice quizzes, games and competitions. The service we received from Rufus was very good: I felt that you were committed to making the project a success and genuinely cared about helping us to achieve our objectives using the calendar. You also helped us to create something which is adaptable for repeated use, creating added value from the project – and we are already planning the next ‘campaign’. Thanks once again.
— Alison Stanners, Managing Director, Nomad E5
We have worked with Rufus now for a few years, they have designed our website, our brochure and helped with the interior designs of both our dental practices amongst other things. They are a great team to work with, very dynamic and creative and extremely friendly and approachable. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

The regeneration project taking place at Cleadon Park is something which we are all very proud of. The project won a Housing Corporation Gold Award, for ‘Delivering Joined Up Development’. This coveted award is regarded as an equivalent to the Oscars in the housing world! From the initial discussion stage with Rufus, we knew that a game with audience participation would be the best way forward. The snakes and ladders game that you designed for us, which incorporated all of the key messages we wanted to get across couldn't have gone better.

Just want to say a big thank you to Rufus for the exhibition stand design and support in its planning. I am really pleased with the end result and I do believe we have achieved something significant with our presence there. The size of the stand (20 sqm) worked very well – it was airy, clean and spacious, and I believe we portrayed a very confident message. We were positioned directly opposite Meanwell, a major player in the industry with a stand four times the size of ours, yet their message was cluttered and stand design dated. Far from being intimidated by them we ‘punched above our weight’ and held up! Just our presence alone in that position gave a good impression about Stadium. Some interest also from potential European distributors, an objective of ours for being at the show.
— Stacey Scullion, Marketing Manager, Stadium Group
The design was very impressive and really well received (especially from some ‘friendly’ competitors who certainly sat in the shadow of our stand). A degree of confidence and belonging was also felt by the ‘stadium-ers’ manning the stand. I feel proud to be part of it.
– Steve Cheshire, KRP (Stadium Group)
Rufus have been very helpful to the design department, where they have taken on many of our design graduates for both long term placements and employment. They have also allowed staff and students to visit their studios, so that students can benefit from experiencing their professional environment, bridging the gap between academic life and the real world. They have recently helped us in printing all of our Design students’ Degree Show banners as well as providing us with a free photographer for the Private View. I highly recommend that the University consider RUFUS for any future tender.

Rubbish, will not use them again. Full of drunks!
