What people say about us

They were a delight to work with and produced costumes with a real WOW factor

Jean Ball, BID Manager, Nottingham

The team at Vortex Creates really take the time to get to know you as a client as well as really understanding your vision.

The creative genius of Nicola and Marianne really brings our vision alive and we are always surprised at how fabulous our events look with minimal work and stress on our side. The team can really be trusted and make it easy for you to focus on the other parts of event organising.

After 4 years of working with Vortex, we can truly recommend. Thank you from us for always going above and beyond.

Declan Ferguson, Hilton

Vortex Creates consistently produce some of the most visually stunning and inventive work that I know.

Michael O’Hara Artistic Director, Gazebo Theatre

I think Marianne and Nicola have done a fantastic job and to be able to capture the company branding in such a visual and unusual fashion is a very impressive achievement.

Mark Ashfield, Director HB&O

There seems to be no limits to what the company can produce......we are yet to find a challenge that they do not tackle with enthusiasm and creativity.

Sarah Worth, Highly Sprung Performance Company

Warwick Arts Centre has worked with Vortex Creates on many occasions over many years.  Nicola and Marianne are great at responding to a brief with flair and integrity – and within budget.  I am always impressed with their ability to come up with things that are fit for purpose, even with tight deadlines and sometimes in tricky circumstances! 

Julia Carruthers, Programme Director, Warwick Arts Centre

Their enthusiasm was uplifting and they were always a pleasure to work with.  We would LOVE to work with this visionary company again.

Stella Thebridge, Fantastic Fun with Words Festival

Working with Vortex is a breath of fresh air; fun, creative and easy to work with. They gave us exactly what we asked for: A quirky and imaginative event which was managed professionally by Marianne and Nicola.

Vortex have designed and created some of the most innovative and dynamic costumes that we've seen. Highly recommended.

Coventry BID have used the Vortex girls from day one!  Delighted to have such a talented team in our city.  From dressing shop windows, to dressing venues and creating “Jack Frost” for our Christmas Light extravaganza before we were announced as City of Culture for 2021.  The Vortex Creates team NEVER fail to deliver.  We are bless to have them working for us!
