Tom was a Senior Designer and grew his skills dramatically while working with us. He was able to develop across multiple platforms and programs and worked autonomously to deliver many campaigns.
Tom was able to develop his design thinking from print right across the full spectrum of work we do and his attention to detail and accuracy was very strong. His greatest strength was how few mistakes went out in his work the first time.
Tom was great with clients and a fun and positive member of our team. He is hugely talented and I am sure he will continue to develop his skills and industry understanding in whatever team he is in. I can confidently recommend him.

Tom's portfolio is bursting with the creative output of three busy years that have seen him working on briefs from across the business. Although much of what is generally produced is created using existing book cover design, some of his best work has been that created from scratch, based on sometimes not very well articulated briefs.
His work producing video content for us has been simply outstanding. Working with very few resources, Tom has created some of our most admired (and shared) book-trailers and author videos including one produced for the publication of Jodi Picoult's Between the Lines — a project which was shown-off by its author to her originating US publisher as an exemplar of what a good book-trailer should be.
Tom has shown himself to be a creative problem solver, with a strong design aesthetic, a quick worker who takes a brief well. He has been huge fun to have around.
I have no hesitation in recommending Tom to any prospective employer.
