    What people have said about me

    Duncan took a vague and somewhat unusual brief, and came back with exactly what we needed. Maps of a fictional country, professional logos for businesses that don't exist, and a political parties that have never campaigned. But all put together to convey something about their identity, right from the start.

    Highly recommended.

    Martin LloydMarketing Communications Manager at Greenpeace

    I first came across Duncan when i taught him on the module, Creativity & Design at UWE. He struck me immediately as an engaged, intelligent, interested individual who really wanted to learn. He was self-motivated and a joy to work with - both as a student, and later as a colleague at UWE. Would that more of my students were like him - he was the one in a thousand who makes you glad that's what you do. He has immense talents and applies himself thoroughly to anything that he takes on. I would employ him any time - how much more can I recommend him?!

    Marcus LynchConsultant / Trainer / Facilitator

    Any company or individual looking for a talented, creative individual will not only enjoy working with Duncan but will have a well designed product and/or brand.

    Holly PapadopoulosLead Manufacturing Engineer at GKN Aerospace

    Duncan? That guy is a first-class idiot. Always going on about aliens or monsters or some such. Why do you want to know about him?
