"Working with Andy opened our eyes to the potential of strategic design within the business. This was all new to us and was initially scary and looked expensive. He organised our thoughts and introduced us to high quality design agencies that we wouldn't have had the confidence to approach on our own - even had we been able to find them
. He co-ordinated a credentials presentation and helped us choose an agency who have become a strategic partner. We had some quick wins from our initial project work which gave us confidence in our approach and demonstrated the level of ROI that we could expect from this type or work.
Our business could not work now without design, as it honestly represents us to our customers and differentiates our offers both online and in the stores."

"Andy's involvement brought us an opportunity with a dynamic client that was project ready with a detailed but realistic set of expectations from the project. This included the level of budget required to make it real and the amount of work that they would have to contribute to implement it.
He has a great ability to uncover the key insights from the client and capture them within the project brief and then match them to the specialist skills of the design agency. This includes the personality types involved on both sides of the collaboration."
