"I've worked with Chris for many years across several companies and many projects. He is an excellent creative thinker, able to analyse & resolve complex design problems with elegance. He is passionate about excellence, detests mediocrity and is a huge asset to any team trying to make their own ding in the Universe. I hope to work with him again."
"Chris is quite simply one of the most versatile people I have ever worked with. The uncommon balance of technical knowledge, hands on ability and creative flair that Chris has makes him a great digital expert. Couple this with his personality and leadership skills and you have a mix that is way more than the sum of the parts. He is a pleasure to be around in and out of work."
"Chris is a joy to work with and I've found him to be original, driven, and with a clear sense of direction. Some designers let their vision override practical considerations, but Chris always approaches problems from a user-centric perspective, which results in a far better "feel" for his projects at the time they go live."
