Testimonials I work regularly with the Gray Design team on conference branding and collateral for our clients. I am constantly impressed with the quality of the work created and their quick understanding of my client’s brief. The response time to any changes or corrections is always excellent, which is so important when working to tight conference deadlines. Jacqui Bates CEO, The Conference Manager

Often our conference briefs are vague but Gray Design always come back with creative concepts that eloquently capture what our clients are looking for. As Conference Organisers our deadlines are paramount, and even though we can’t always give them the lead times, they always deliver on time. Denise Broeren Director, Think Business Events

I’ve been working with the team at Gray Design for several years now, and they have been outstanding in their understanding of the needs of our conference. Over the last few years they have been instrumental in helping us create a unique brand identity and look and feel for our conference, in line with our organisation’s existing brand guidelines. They are very conscious and aware of the fast-paced world of conference organising, and have consistently delivered complex projects within the timelines of a more-often-than-not chaotic environment. Josephine Williams Conference & Events Leader External Affairs Group, IDP Education Ltd

We have always found that Gray Design exceed our expectations and always provide a number of creative ideas and themes. We always have very positive feedback on their work, and they never let us down on delivery! Elizabeth Foley Past CEO, Research Australia
