“I approached Nigel after seeing some of his work advertised by an old school acquaintance on Facebook. I was looking for something different and original to liven up my plain white walls. I had ideas but no idea how to go about the design. Nigel was patient and helped me develop a concept until I was completely happy with the design before putting something to canvas. I was sent regular photo updates of the progress. It wasn’t until I picked the piece up that I really understood how much hard work Nigel had put in, I was blown away with the quality and the detail. I am so happy with it I am already thinking of ideas for the
“I was thrilled with Nigel’s design for a logo for my upcoming website. All I gave him was a basic outline of what I wanted, and he was able to create a bespoke design in his own unique style. I highly recommend AceOne Designs for any design or illustrative work you may require”

“I had spent a while trying to think of the perfect gift for my best friend’s wedding, I wanted something that was personal and she could keep forever. I had the idea of having a picture of my best friend and her fiancé illustrated and knew the only person to approach was Nigel at AceOne Designs having seen some samples of his work on Facebook. Wow! is really all I can say! The illustration is amazing! He has made it look 100x better than I could ever have imagined. Nigel worked from a picture of the couple I had sent him but was able to add his own style into it and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome! At all times through the process Nigel kept me informed of what he was doing and sent me samples of the illustration. Nigel is professional, efficient and amazing at his job, I couldn’t recommend him enough! To anyone who is wanting any artwork of any kind done AceOne Designs is the place to go you will not be disappointed at all!! I cannot wait to give the illustration to my friend she is going to love it!!”

Portsmouth FC Stadium Mural
This project was part of a redevelopment project of Fratton Park, the home of Portsmouth FC, back in 2011. I (Nigel) acquired the job whilst I was at university, created the design to be used as part of a professional practice project at uni and then completed the wall after I graduated. This album features some snippets of the photo progression on the wall of the chosen ‘shirt timeline’ design that I created. More can be found on our Facebook design page www.facebook.com/AceOneDesigns. The clients picked this design to be painted in/under the North Stand of the stadium. This rewards from this project were purely exposure based, as initially the project started out as a uni project and the football club could not afford to pay me. This did not bother me as I was excited to start painting and complete the project after I graduated, even if it took 6 months to paint! However, the project was really what got me into wanting to freelance, set up AceOne Designs and to try and make a career in design.
MessHeads Hair Design Salon
This project was presented to us via a hairdresser and good friend of ours, Joe Slater, in the summer of 2012. He had decided to start up his own hair salon after working at various salon chains and not being appreciated. He asked us to create a brand and identity for his start-up company, which involved designing a logo and painting interior feature wall murals throughout the salon. This included a feature MessHeads graffiti wall mural, a UV arrow corridor pointing towards the salon toilets, as well as two reflecting ‘coats of arms’ wall murals. We were then approached 6 months later to help design and create a website to give the salon an online presence too. We outlaid the web build and design to some solid contacts and project managed the website from start to finish. MessHeads Hair Design’s website can be found here www.messheadshair.co.uk. All photos regarding the project can be found on our Facebook design page www.facebook.com/AceOneDesigns
This is a project we were enlisted to design on by a client in collaboration with Dan James, a website designer and photographer. It is an exciting new start-up tattoo artist ‘search engine’ website. We were asked to design a logo for the company, a banner ‘search engine’ design for the landing page of the website and some extra design work for the business cards. We’ve also since been recontacted to design and create some flyers to promote the business as it is very close to being up and running.
This is a varied selection of projects that we’ve been commissioned to work on ranging from canvas commissions to sticker designs.
These are various logo designs we have been asked to design for a wide a range of clients, including our own!
This is a selection of many tattoo designs we’ve been commissioned to create for a series of clients. These designs have proven to be quite popular and in turn we’ve gained repeat custom from these clients.
These are some miscellaneous designs that we really love. Some have been used, or in some cases unfortunately not been selected, as competition entries, magazine covers, t-shirt designs and/or poster submissions. We also have an example (Rihanna) of our current run of limited edition celebrity portrait prints. There are many other celebs to choose from and they are all available to buy via our online store! www.aceonedesigns.bigcartel.com
