MIKE IS BADASS! He's an exceptional designer and brand thinker. When I’m working on a project that needs creative muscle, he’s the first person I call. Mike goes beyond being “a designer” and is a creative strategist who is thoughtful, precise, and inspiring while being incredible open and reliable.

He is also one of the most passionate designers I know. His infectious enthusiasm makes him a pleasure to work with.

Testimonial

From the moment I got to know Mike I knew he was different to a lot of the design/creative agencies and freelancers I had worked with previously and that he had the right experience for the work I was trying to achieve. He not only understands every brief I put forward but also goes the extra mile to make it even better. I found he also has the right amount of patience without time wasting to help me understand and brainstorm creative ideas that are needed to ensure we produce the best solution.

I’ve been impressed by Mike’s diverse skills in building a company’s brand and visual identity. I particularly appreciated how Mike challenged me so I didn’t settle for ‘good enough’ – instead, leading us to create something we can truly be proud of. Even after the project has officially ended, Mike continues to provide support to ensure that my company lands as it should.

Mike in my experience is an extremely rare animal, he is both very good at 2D design, graphics etc but also is equally at home in 3D, designing products and preparing them for production.

Peritip

Testimonial

I’ve worked with Mike on Peritip from the beginning. His drive has got the project from a standstill to up and running. As a dentist designing a product was new to me, but Mike took on the project with energy and commitment. Without him, Peritip wouldn’t have come to fruition. He designed the product and produced all the graphics, animations, packaging and website. Going beyond by assisting in getting the product on the market. He’s dedicated, reliable and funny, a joy to work with.

Mike has helped us bring our business and ideas to life. The time he spent understanding our target market, their needs, and our value proposition meant his creations were spot on. It feels like Mike is part of the team as he’s often sharing ideas or “thought this might be of interest” ideas with us. Mike is reliable, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I recommend him for all aspects of design and business.

Mike is fun to work with, responsive and professional in his approach. The identity is simple yet effective and precisely what I wanted. Mike’s technical skills in developing the website were excellent. I recommend Mike to others like me who are setting up their business and looking for someone to help their brand and experience.
