I've worked with Mike and his work has never failed to be anything other than first class. Mike is incredibly versatile having designed graphics for a wide range of different purposes, designed and built websites to order, captured inspiring photographic images, and produced high quality promotional videos.
He was instrumental in the design and planning of our Media Broadcast Centre, and has coordinated its use for both filmed and live video production, audio recording, and photography. I cannot recommend his services highly enough.

I had the pleasure of working with Mike for over 8 years at Inview Technology.
I recruited Mike back in 2011 and it was a decision I never regretted. Mike settled into the company very quickly and from his first day he was giving a positive contribution towards improving the UX of our product.
During his time at Inview, Mike quickly progressed to become the Senior Designer and eventually took the role of Design Manager. He was responsible for the design and documentation of the UX. This involved working closely with the engineering team to realise the team's designs. This was an area where Mike particularly flourished.
I would recommend Mike for any UI/UX/Design role without hesitation. He is a consummate professional, a talented designer and his drive to improve processes means he would thrive at any company.

I worked with Mike for a number of years where I gained a lot of valuable knowledge. Working alongside such a talented designer like Mike inspired and motivated me at such an early stage of my creative journey. Mike's versatility and range of skills in the creative industry; graphic design, photography, UI/UX design, web design, to name a few, provided the whole design team with a clear vision on projects we worked on.
Mike ran a number of courses for the team, with the goal of widening the skill set for each designer. The courses were easy to follow and extremely beneficial - they have assisted in developing my creative skillset immensely.
It was a joy to work with Mike as a colleague. I owe him a great deal for the extensive knowledge that he passed on to me

Mike has a collection of qualities that made him an incredibly reliable member of the team.
Calm, resourceful, creative, conscious of time demands, a great pro-active communicator and the ability/mindset to just get things done.
On top of that he frequently took the initiative to explore how his team worked and the output they produced with a critical eye and a focus on opportunities for improvement.
