"I employed Olly for over 4 years on a freelance basis and he never ceased to impress me.
As you will know if you have worked with him, he throws himself into everything he does with real passion and has an outstanding imagination. These qualities, combined with his kindness, love of hard work, exceptional attention to detail and very perceptive ear and eye make him a genuinely terrific designer, sounding board and all-round employee.
In our time working together, Olly completed a great deal of nuts-and-bolts design work on established brands as well as some challenging ab initio tasks that required him to develop product proposals from scratch.
Across our time working together, he exceeded my expectations in every task, whether that be designing business cards, product packaging, or pamphlets and other literature, presenting me with end results that were far better and more imaginative than I could have hoped for.
Over time, his understanding of my needs as a client, his willingness to go above and beyond, and his extraordinarily friendly personality saw me increasingly calling on Olly to work as a proxy for me in business meetings and at dozens of exhibitions around the UK and in Europe.
As a very creative person with a superb sense of humour, he became my right hand man, and fundamental to my company’s success, engaging in business development tasks that took him outside of his comfort zone and that developed his confidence in profound ways.
In each of these endeavours he, again, excelled himself, showing a gift for sales work, a knack for leadership and calm, stylish demeanour that made him an exceptional ambassador for my business.
As such, Olly is more than just a gifted designer. He was fundamental to my company’s success and I could not recommend him more highly."
- Martin Vaux, Director, Black Box Games (creators of Lords of War)
"As a start up business we know our business well, although didn't necessarily understand how to market ourselves effectively.
We met with Olly and were delighted with the creative ideas he brought to the table. My first impressions of Olly were that he conducted himself in an exceptionally professional manner and really cared about our business. He listened carefully to our thoughts and asked us questions regarding the business in order to fully understand our direction and to help develop ideas towards our ideal end design. Just a day later we received draft of the logo, which we were absolutely thrilled with. It was obvious that Olly had listened to our thoughts and business protective’s very carefully and that he had thoroughly researched our market, in order to develop a design and concept that encompassed Sapphire Water perfectly. He helped us design a logo and business ethos that we believe encompasses what we stand for in our market and separates us from our competitors.
We have since recommended Olly to friends and colleagues as he is a pleasure to work with and produces a very high quality of work.
I have no doubt the Olly will be an asset in any role which requires high levels of design, creativity and communication."
- Lee Adams, Sapphire Water
