"There are few senior designers I've had the privilege of working with that possess the passion, work ethic, talent and teamwork that John does. His work is an exceptional blend of overall strategic thinking and innovative creative execution, geared towards delivering on the overall business initiatives. 

In addition to being an incredible creative lead who was always willing to jump in and do whatever it took to get the job done, he was outstanding to work with and a consummate team player and professional. I would highly recommend John for anyone seeking a passionate, committed, and experienced senior design lead. He will not disappoint."

"John is a highly talented designer who has an enormous body of experience and expertise with the web. He is also very skilled in interface development (HTML, CSS), and he marries all these with a good understanding of user experience. John first joined us at My Destination as a designer, yet his skills and professional maturity soon proved themselves to the extent that he was promoted as Head of Design.

Being responsible for Product Development and UX I worked closely with John and it is evident that he understands the business needs very well, and can translate these into designs that are right up there with all the big name websites. John was instrumental in ensuring our full redesign lived up to the promise of My Destination being a world class website. He innately understands design issues, and the subtlety that minute details of design impacts the user experience. He also understands truly well the interactive issues of web design, and this is where his exceptional skills and knowledge as a HTML/CSS coder comes into play. He can take the Information Architecture and Interaction design requirements, translate them into graphic design, and then liaise with the front end developers to make sure a seamless process takes place within the project team and a great interface is produce, first time, every time. Similarly, John has a keen interest in usability issues and is well aware of user experience best practises. As a result he adds value to the interface design process and creates efficiency, an engenders a great satisfaction to the project team.

I have the highest of regards for John. His technical skills are superior. And to top it it all off, he is a very harmonious team member. He always takes on-board all feedback given and responds after given good consideration to the issues raised. He is always thoughtful and never difficult or rigid no matter how demanding the situation. John is a thorough professional and a great personality."
