Testimonials

“David is an incredibly talented creative designer, I asked him to join my team during the frantic early days of GrabOne and he played a huge role in our growth and was responsible for the brand creative development.

It was very important to have someone who not only was a great designer, but also had the vision to develop a brand across a wide range of media. He is someone who constantly pushes his potential on every brief, is commercially aware and is the right kind of guy needed for any ambitious team.”


Barry Hand – Marketing Manager, GrabOne

“What we’re always looking for – and not always able to find – in any working relationship is someone who gets what our show is about. David got that straight away and brought the personality of our show to life off-air.

Whether it was our fully-wrapped Euros 2016 van (which got mobbed by Irish fans in France), our Cheese & Crackers socks (easily our most popular giveaway item) or our ‘Ah Sure Lookit’ Comedy Tour branding (which is following us on our sold-out dates across Ireland), David has delivered creative results time and time again. Taking direction well from both of us whilst also bringing his own creative spark to the projects and always being so easy to work with.”


Dermot & Dave – Morning Radio Presenters, Today FM

“David joined Maximum Media at a time of huge change in the company. He quickly had to immerse himself into the culture to ensure he could deliver a variety of services under serious time restraints. His first project was to develop saleable branding concepts for sixteen new broadcast products across 4 very different brands in under a month.

I was astounded at how quickly he adapted to those demands and delivered brilliant concepts in each instance. He went on to become a key component of the company; raising the design standard and establishing a cohesion and conceptual unity across the 4 brands.”


Paddy McKenna – Broadcast Director, Maximum Media / JOE

“We worked with David on five annual brochures for the Royal Opera House London. These projects require careful consideration and design of performance details; which include high-quality imagery & synopsis’, clear presentation of booking & venue information, and display requirements of our advertising partners.

We were delighted with the finished products which seamlessly merge the requirements of the client with a beautiful design that would appeal to our audience. David worked in a very timely and professional manner. He is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him to other clients.”


Ruth Hurl – Marketing Executive, Element Pictures/Royal Opera House London

“David took control of the design of GoldenPlec Magazine late in the day and did an excellent job. Having worked on several similar projects, I find him to be amongst the most positive, adaptable and creative designers I’ve ever worked with. He took total control of the artistic direction of the project, quickly buying into its identity and taking into account its intended audience.

What he produced was modern, showed strong development with each issue and highlighted the content we wanted to push. He also took ideas on board and responded well to requests for changes. I’d highly recommend him, and will have no hesitation working with him on any future undertakings.”


James Hendicott – Editor, GoldenPlec Magazine

“David is an excellent creative designer with tonnes of creative ability combined with strong organisational and commercial awareness. Working on very successful high profile b2c and b2b marketing campaigns – David delivered passion, teamwork and results, time and time again in a fast-paced e-commerce start-up business. I highly recommend David.”
