Don't just take my word for it...
Simon has been our resident creative genius on Tesco Baby Club for a number of years. He’s been absolutely instrumental in improving all of our web and social content. His ideas and creativity seem endless, but always rooted in business objectives. Simon is extremely conscientious and has really high standards, so no short cuts or anything other than top quality work. Other than this, Simon is generally just a down-to-earth, fun person to work with.
Marketing Manager, Tesco
We chose Simon for our branding, design and web development because from the start we felt he understood our brief exactly and was able to quickly capture, develop and enhance our vision beyond what we had even imagined. He is one of the most proactive and efficient people I have ever worked with, we always felt our work was a priority to him and he was conscious to stick to our timeline and budget, often chasing us which was very much appreciated! We were grateful for his honest opinion with what would work and what might not, and the advice he gave us when required - drawing from his own expertise and his contacts. Simon provided a great end to end service for us, which felt like a true collaboration and we will continue to work with him on this and future projects.

Creative Director, Bookmark
Simon is without doubt one of the most naturally creative and original thinking people I have had the pleasure to shoot with. Simon works extremely hard to realise his creative vision and has the ability to reimagine a simple brief and come up with something outstanding. He directs the team with authority and understanding, ensuring his clients needs are always considered. It’s always been a pleasure to work closely alongside Simon and bring his ideas to life through the lens.
I engaged Simon in a creative pitch and his work stood out a mile, both in terms of its creativity and insight. With an impeccable eye for design and a responsive and diligent working style, he is a delight to collaborate with. Absolutely recommended.
