Tom has been a robust support to our design department. We've been delighted as he's surpassed our expectations at each and every turn with high-pressure, tight deadline briefs on some of our most critical pieces of business. His pro-active, perfectionist disposition has been indispensable - a progressive creative who drives his hawk-like focus on the minutia that makes a great designer different to one who'll change your business. We are forever grateful at the discovery of Tom and excited to work with him at every opportunity."

Georgia Barretta
U.K Design Director, Geometry Global

 

I worked with Tom to re-brand and make a new website for Captain Tolley: www.captaintolley.com. He's a rare breed of designer - one who can communicate complex ideas in impactful, exciting ways. He's also a pleasure to work with. Efficient, versatile and full of great ideas, he understood exactly what I wanted in the brief and improved on it. I would recommend him to anyone looking for intelligent, effective design."

Joshua Jordan
Cultural Insight Graduate at Added Value

 

" We worked with Tom on our new brand identity which involved creating a new logo, branded materials and website. Tom's creativity and professionalism are exceptional; he took on board ideas and feedback from across the business and came up with a design which surpassed everyone's expectations."

Ian Wright
Joint Managing Director at Tapestry Research

 

" I worked with Tom over a number of years during his time at Flamingo. We worked very closely on numerous projects for adidas, Diageo and for Flamingo group more generally - including a publication on Africa and exhibition design for our company expo in Istanbul. Working with Tom is always equal parts creative pleasure and professional reassurance. When coming up with a concept and bringing a vision or territory to life, it was always collaborative and the output always compelling. Equally, knowing you were going to get there, on time and on budget removes that sense of uncertainty when diving into the unknown. Would fully recommend Tom for a whole swathe of design work, from conception to execution."

Greg Wells
Director at Flamingo

 

" Tom is a pleasure to work with - always willing to think through a design problem from new angles with seemingly endless patience. Rather than viewing new or changed requirements as compromises, he seems to find ways of making the result even better looking. (Tom created the design, including a brand new look and feel involving project-by-project re-skinning, for the latest version of the Field Notes Communities mobile app)"
