What people say

I’ve been lucky enough to work with some great people and even luckier that a handful have written about their experiences with me below.

“I worked closely with Sam on the TPO.com social network and mobile phone store. Sam is a first class designer, without a question, but he’s more than that – he really gets the overall “big picture” of user engagement, user experience, and how that interfaces with business strategy. 10/10!”

“Sam is by far one of the most talented, all round creatives I have worked with. He has turned our products into world class propositions & built and led a team that are energised by his passion and professionalism. He has the rare mix of strategic thinking coupled with mind blowing ideas that make him the best in his space.”

Tom Gutteridge
Co-Founder of The People’s Operator

“I had the pleasure of working with Sam for over a year at The People’s Operator. Sam is an incredibly talented visual, brand and user experience designer, but that doesn’t even begin to describe his value to the company. Sam was a linchpin at TPO, holding together relationships between all departments, and proactively leading many different aspects of the business. I hope to get the opportunity to work with Sam again in the future.”

Lead Developer (Contract) at The People’s Operator

“I have worked with Sam on several projects and always found him a pleasure to work with. His design skills are first class, yet unusually for a designer, he is able to balance that with a pragmatic approach to modern methods of user interface development, without compromising design integrity. “

“He has an excellent understanding of the importance of the user journey and latest development techniques such as responsive web design. And he is also very good with the client-facing part of project management, communicating with them in a way they can understand whilst translating their requirements to ‘developer-speak’”

“Sam was an integral team member of the klickdigital team from pitch creative concept through to the final design and its implementation. Sam led the design element of the project. This involved working closely with the technical team within klickdigital, YouTube and the Vodafone Online team.

A complex project with many stakeholders in which Sam delivered a design that exceeded everyone’s expectations and set the benchmark for other Vodafone YouTube projects across Europe.”
