“Gavin is a creative and competent graphical designer with strong skills in the adobe suite and a creative eye for detail.”
David Mountford, Creative Director, Design Infusion
“I taught Gavin on the module 'Creativity and Innovation' as part of his undergraduate degree studies reading for the Award of Product Design BA [Hons]. He was a highly articulate and considered student who greatly appreciated and understood the role of design when applied within an organisational context. Gavin offered an erudite and often detailed argument supporting his understanding of strategic design within the realm of new product development. I would not hesitate in recommending him whatsoever to any potential employers who wish to appoint an intelligent and ambitious designer - highly recommended.”
