What the client said


I have been working with Shrewdd Marketing throughout my time at Harvard Technology and when it came to developing a new brand, I had no doubts in enlisting the company’s support.

Shrewdd provided a host of pro-active creative ideas, which built upon our existing brand, whilst sticking to the brief of supplying a more technology-focused design. Everyone at the company loves the new look of Harvard Technology and we have already received lots of positive feedback from our customers. We look forward to working with Shrewdd as we continue to develop as a business.
