Testimonials

 “After working with Doug over the last 2 years I can recommend his quality of work, accountability and professionalism.
It seems our always present deadline schedules for needed brand creative work never seems to faze him and he always delivers on time.
Add to this his understanding of our needs, which differ greatly from job to job and his delivery of specific components, I find this is what truely separates him from the rest of his field.

We will continue to work with and have no hesitation in recommending Doug.”

“IVM Group has used Doug’s services more than once and each time we have found him to be an excellent resource for our business. Doug has been able to interpret our fairly loose brief’s into exactly what we wanted and has provided us the highest quality of output within the tight timeframes required.  We will definitely use Doug again and again in the future.”

“The SuperCool Group of Companies, through its unique SuperTest environmental test facility, had an urgent need to portray a large number of scientific concepts dealing with the transport cold chain and the education of fleet operators to help them meet Australian standards to safely carry chilled and frozen foods and pharmaceuticals. We quickly found that Doug has a unique ability to dilute otherwise complex processes into easily understandable, almost entertaining illustrations. Doug’s pictures are truly worth a thousand words and they have helped our team with highly professional presentations at a global level. Our team likes dealing with Doug because he has a sharp corporate mind and his ability to grasp complicated technical concepts is quite profound.”

“We have been working with Doug for the past three years on a variety of illustration and identity projects. Not only is he is a very talented illustrator, but he can work across a number of illustration styles which makes him very versatile. His enthusiasm, can-do attitude, reliability and sense of humour is what we love about Doug and we would have no hesitation saying that can tackle any project big or small”.

We first worked with Doug to produce a logo for our video production company when we were first starting out over a decade ago. We’ve since worked with Doug to update our logo over the years, and have referred innumerable amounts of clients onto him – something we’d be hesitant to do if working with him was anything but a seamless experience.

Doug is patient, intuitive and always puts in the time to work out what you’re after to ensure he delivers quality designs.”

“Doug is certainly an accomplished illustrator & designer. We have been printing artwork designed and supplied by Doug for almost a decade, and always precisely print-ready. He supplies artwork in a timely and professional manner, able to meet deadlines when time is an important factor. He is always easily contactable, and is ready to listen to specific design requirements. We have no hesitation in recommending Doug to clients who require design work”.

“Doug’s creativity and attention to detail is beyond question; but what makes working with Doug so rewarding is the personal interest he takes in our business and developing our brand.
Never content with mediocre, Doug has a knack of distilling the very essence of the message we are trying to convey with such clarity and simplicity that he makes it look easy.
Doug is approachable, easy to talk to, available, professional and well-connected in the industry to the extent that he has become an essential part of our business.
Doug’s work is like alchemy; we don’t understand exactly how he does it, but he takes our crude ideas and turns them into gold!
If you have an idea, want to get your point across, create a brand, or develop a corporate image that is second to none, talk to Doug. It’s that simple.”

“Doug was engaged to design and develop the branding, corporate identity, logo and website for the launch of our Interior Design studio, MRI Design. Doug won the project due to his skills in illustrating and unique approach to graphic design. Doug was understanding of the client’s needs and he spent invaluable time workshopping with us to establishing the ‘right’ corporate identity, which was essential our new business.

 If you are considering hiring Doug for your creative project, you can expect a strategically relevant solution, remarkable creative flair and an end result that meets client expectations.”
