APE transformed the profile of our organisation bringing definition and clarity to what we do, ensuring that supporters had a clear understanding of the charity they supported, and managed a branding process across two continents amongst a wholly disparate group of people. The end result is one that has engaged and delighted everyone involved and he has done so with his creativity, vision, and highly effective management. Dave will get it done, and get it done as superbly as he will professionally. A brilliant outcome.

APE’s work with AfriKids has been inspirational. Their comprehensive rebranding of our organisation needed to capture the passion we have for our development work, as well as the professional corporate image we needed to present to our partners. APE’s commitment to understanding our history, culture and philosophy was exceptional; and their engagement with us was inclusive and sensitive, conducted through individual meetings and workshops in the UK and Ghana. We’ve been left with a wide-ranging and creative brand and marketing tool-kit, including booklets, a substantial video and photographic library, and a major advertising campaign. And more importantly a new identity which has been embraced by our staff in the UK and Ghana.

Dave Brown was a pleasure to work with and we are delighted with the results of our new brand and website. He has a creative approach with a great eye for design but is also extremely responsive and was able to deliver exactly what we wanted. He worked constructively with us throughout the process, pushing us to think creatively but always keeping in mind our brief and what we’d asked for. He also took care of all the details and kept on top of a complex project and schedule, meeting all our deadlines and responding quickly to queries and requests. We felt we got a very personal service and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ape Inc.

Intelligent, creative, startlingly talented and genuinely impressive. Dave is an absolute pleasure
to work with.

I am not sure how to capture Dave Brown and APE in writing. Working with them through our rebranding process has been stimulating, inspiring and refreshing. We thought we had hired a designer but what we really got was a principal, someone who took full ownership of the project and made it his venture as well. Dave is enthusiastic, professional, creative, and earnest. He made the project fun and in the end we got a beautiful product. Dave is a world-class creative.

It was a pleasure working with APE. Dave worked with us from the early brand concept phase all the way through to the deployment of our new brand and website, giving us the creative flair, delivery tenacity and flexibility we needed throughout.

Rebranding an international business like Alpha presents some very unique challenges and Dave and his network of associates always rose up to meet them head-on.

Dave Brown is one of the most outstanding book designers around. His attention to detail, creative flair and sheer hard graft mean that every book he is involved in feels fresh, innovative and entirely unique. Which is why Dave’s books stand out a mile, for all the right reasons, on the increasingly bland and cautious book shelves of British publishing.
