“When building a brand, particularly in the early days, looks matter. That’s why Lee is such an inspiration. He took a complex brief and make it simple and, through a pretty unique mix of entrepreneurial understanding, creativity and technical know-how, quickly brought our ideas to life. Thoroughly recommended.”
Adam Barber, Publisher, A Word About Wind
“While designing for us at Zone Creations, Lee was able to take a short and often broad brief and turn it into design led products that would hit the mark of what you we were hoping to see. Lee has a wonderful ability, to get a handle on what we were looking for and to do it to an extremely high level and able to design products that would make us smile.”
Jamie Hale, Director, Zone Creations Limited
“Lee worked as a freelance graphic designer at Consolidated PR, producing a high standard of design for use in pitches including layouts, infographics and visualisations of concepts to be presented. He was able to work well under pressure of looming deadlines, receiving design tasks from several different teams within the agency and interpreting the ideas that we had into visually rich and exciting images that we were thrilled to present.”
Chris Lawrence, Creative Director, Consolidated PR
“Lee is an outstanding creative talent who relishes every aspect of the design process and manages to resolve any project into a deceptively simple and entirely resolved outcome”
Chris Lefteri, Chris Lefteri Design Ltd
“Lee is one of those stars of the future! One to watch”
