We can take care of the whole set-up and manage it for you if you can’t spare the time.

Newsletter Template

Keeping your contacts updated with your latest news is very important. But often you only have standard looking email templates to choose from that don’t match your brand at all.
Many email marketing services like Mail-Chimp allow you to design and upload your very own template. We can design a newsletter for you that fits in with your corporate website and any other marketing material you already use.

Email Signature

Many don’t realise how far this little piece of branding can go. Making sure your customers have all of your contact details always at hand is a major way to increase contacts. And if they match your corporate image as well, they will always keep you well in mind.
We can design and set-up an html signature for  you and your staff and make sure you don’t lose out on any opportunities.


Guizzo is pronounced “gwittso”. It means “creative flick”, in Italian.

Our Mission

At Guizzo we offer corporate design, web design, event design,
illustration and social media set-up and management.

Our mission is to tailor great quality design to the needs of small businesses.

We are a small business ourselves, and are hence well aware of how hard investing in communication can be
when we are busy getting clients and earning some money.

We show our clients that a professional looking and well designed corporate image
can start from something as small as a business card, and develop through several years,
as long as client and designer work together on a common, continuous path.

Working with us doesn’t require big investments nor big projects,
we help you outline a plan for your company to build an organic and strong image,
with clear steps and prices, then you are the one setting the time-scales and the budget.

If you would like to know more please contact us and let’s have a chat!


Here is where our past clients are able to speak out for us, our skills, our service. Thank you to those of you who are helping us grow.

by Viviana Tagliaferri @ MEDRoute on Guizzo - Design for small Business

Chiara's logo for my Marie Curie MedRoute EU project is a travel in the history of the Mediterranean. It allows the visual to match with the imagination, accompanying the viewers along my Mediterranean 17th century route, and it describes exactly what the project means to be. The attention to the historicity of the map (along with a Tolkenian-like flavour) is what makes me more proud of having this logo for representing such a crucial project in my academic career . Least and not last, it sun-see colors bring fresh air to ideas mainly built in archives and libraries.

Many many thanks to Guizzo for the capacity of intuition and exploration of my work.

Chiara is a fantastic designer, we approached her at fairly short notice with a big project that involved logos, branding, graphics and sketches that most other designers would've baulked at taking it on, but she embraced the project, and managed to deliver it on time, and on budget, without making (too many!) complaints about our various calls and emails late at night to ask for edits!

Chiara's intuition makes her more than a designer (albeit that I chose her on the basis of her inspirational designs) but also a guide, a mentor and an incredible support. I worked with Chiara from the very inception of my business, from designing my logo, my website, and ultimately my van, and from the beginning was in awe of her innate ability to translate my thoughts, no matter how incoherent, into a beautiful, tangible end product that encapsulated absolutely everything I could have hoped for plus more. I wouldn't dream of either using or recommending anyone else.

We are using Guizzo Design to help with our LOGO and ARTwork. Chiara, the owner shows a a real interest and has expertise and advise. It made real difference to our business. The pricing is right for a small business budget which is big + again. Thanks Chiara, the Alplings Team. (you're really a part of our team !!)

I have been working with Guizzo on a number of projects in the past year – some for my own business, some for clients of mine – and I can only highly recommend them! Chiara is a very creative and skilled designer, for digital as well as print, and she'll quickly grasp what your company is about and put it into beautiful designs.

“Communication is about what they hear, not what you say.” That was my teacher’s favourite motto, saying that no matter how hard you try to say something the only point of view that really counts is the recipient’s. A marketing campaign, a leaflet, a flyer or a banner, whatever media your small business is using, […]

What’s a logo, really? It’s the first and most important piece of your brand identity. It says who your company is. It’s your company’s face and signature. It’s fundamental that you understand this when asking your logo designer for an estimate: A logo should be unique, there is a lot of research involved to make […]

At Guizzo  we are passionate about food, craft and makers’ markets, in fact we are stall holders ourselves although just during the weekends. We know how at markets you need to face the weather, withstand the increase/decrease of the amount of business in different months, and to stand out among dozens of fellow traders, often while staying underneath the very same gazebo […]

I firmly believe that everyone has the natural ability to recognise a balanced design project that works well (no matter if this is a logo, a leaflet or a website) from an unclear, messy, amateur one. Just… some people will analyse what they are looking at, and be able to tell what puts them off […]
