National newspaper sub-editor
Chris has done a fantastic job creating a t-shirt design based on a newspaper frontpage with a headline in Cockney Rhyming Slang. Chris has been great to work with, always amenable to discussing ideas and options, and the final design looks really excellent.
I gave Chris the job of producing a t-shirt design based on a newspaper frontpage but using headlines in Cockney Rhyming Slang. Since Chris has work in newspaper layout he was ideally experienced. Chris immediately came up with a couple of mockups which were absolutely excellent and Chris was very easy to work with and amenable to changing the design. The final result is a really excellent design that's a great combination of realistic and fun. The design will be a great addition to the range of t-shirts for sale on my website. I look forward to working with Chris again. Great job !!
