06. TESTIMONIALS

Meet the people who are talking about me!

I had the pleasure of working with Richard very closely on a two-year project in which he was responsible for designing all six levels of Student Books and Workbooks for an adult English language course that was being adapted to American English. Richard brought wonderfully creative ideas to this new version and was always ready and willing to make adjustments and come up with workable solutions to challenging layouts. Richard can work on tight schedules and always manages quick turnarounds. He is a great team player and I look forward to the next opportunity to work with him. I would recommend him highly on any project.

I've used Richard over the years in a number of ways - initially for cover design where he is creative and responsive to the brief and also for logo design - for both corporate and product branding. Richard has a great eye for colour and style. Most recently Richard managed the commissioning of artwork for a large literacy project. I gave him tight budgets and tighter timelines and he commissioned fantastic work from his many illustrator contacts around the world.

I thoroughly recommend Richard: I worked with him since the late 90s and his experience, technical knowledge and eye for design are brilliant and he has never let me down on timelines or cost overruns.
