*To caveat this, I usually find a way to automate or batch process boring jobs — Chris :-)

“We’ve worked with Chris on a range of projects from corporate guidelines to ATL design and he always delivers exactly what is required. He makes creatives feel comfortable, understands the brief and adds value.”

Mark Grosvenor — Managing Partner, Curious Productions

“I worked with Chris at Publicis and saw first hand what a versatile and creative designer he is. He comes from a typographic background so his craft skills are top-notch as are his technical skills.”

Rob Sutton — Independent Designer, Hula Creative

“Chris is the ‘dog’s dusters’ when it comes to all things typographical and design… He is diligent, considered and deeply knowledgeable, as well as extremely talented when it comes to Mac ability. His craft skills with layout and type are now matched by his retouching and Photoshop mastery, making him an absolute goldmine when it comes to studio resources. I worked closely with Chris for a number of years and would do so again in a heartbeat. He’s also a loyal, funny and all-round top bloke with great taste in music.”

Mitchell Gumbley — Creative Consultant, Design Director and Creative Partner

His eye for detail and flair for type could be relied on to provide a professional finish to any project. He’s an experienced head and a safe pair of hands that would be an asset to any agency.”
