Mark's portfolio was very impressive. I knew that he was the person for the job and he has not disappointed. Mark completed the job within a short space of time and his communication was excellent. I would highly recommend Mark to anybody needing design services.
Helen was a breath of fresh air to deal with. A clear and concise brief, rapid professional communication and direction, and a pleasure to work alongside. A very enjoyable job.
