 – Hemendra Dassanayake, Product Owner at Accenture

 

76 visual designs produced.  40 more than promised to client. Collaborative input helped shape wireframes. Helped shape the overall project plan by estimating the required work and helped shape the design sprints. Boundaries pushed against style guide – impressing the client.

 

Alex successfully modified the designs he produced based on feedback received from the client and the wider Telecommunications Group. Design signed off at Branding review with Telecommunications Head of Brand Director.

 – Simon Grantham – User Experience Manager at IBM

 

Leading visual design role to deliver brand new Pharmaceutical iPad app, managing another visual designer & developer, producing daily assets, implementing live changes, working with developers & presenting to stakeholders. Alex responded to this situation with a pragmatic attitude and helped ensure that the team delivered an app that delighted the client.

 

He helped manage team and client expectations throughout the project and responded to feedback with flexibility and optimism. Above all, he created visual designs that met the vague brief and impressed our client – a tough ask in only 3 weeks.

 – Ross MacKay, Project Manager at Accenture

 

Having worked with Alex in the past on a number of creative design projects, I was extremely impressed with his professionalism. The advantage of using Alex’s services, is that he mixes striking creative visual design skills with solid technical ability. He works to the brief with little direction and brings ideas to life. Alex works hard and is extremely punctual when it comes to meeting tight deadlines. He has provided me with valuable advice on how to best proceed with projects without getting too technical.

 

Alex is extremely easy to work with and comes highly recommended by ex colleagues, a number of which continue to use him on new business ventures.
