David Collett

Andy is one of the greatest employees I have ever had in managing people over the past 12 years. He is extremely creative, works well by himself and takes the initiative at every possible opportunity and provides design exactly to the brief and improves on it.

He is an excellent employee ad any company would be very lucky to have him onboard. I can not speak highly enough of what he did for our company

I worked with Andy at Maverick Mav, where he fulfilled a range of different roles at all levels of the design and online marketing process. He combined excellent skills in graphic and web design with a strong understanding of how to position and market businesses on the web.

I would recommend Andy to any employer due to his ability to synthesize a range of skills into a strong overall understanding of all aspects of a project.
