Don’t just take my word for it

Neil produced outstanding work. He is a talented and imaginative art director, who comes up with big ideas as well as having a great eye for detail. He is also good in front of clients, and works well with the wider agency team.

Paul Kitcatt, Kitcall Nohr

Neil created good creative ideas that were consistent to our marketing objectives and he created a good information system between our marketing department and the Agency.

Muhoho Kenyatta, Chairman Brookside Kenya. (Son of Jomo Kenyatta, Kenya's first president)

Neil has been a dutiful and expert craftsman, he has produced a broad range of inspired creative work and has regularly pushed the boundaries of the brief. I would recommend him to work in any creative communications environment.
