Testimonials

" I've worked with Simon in a previous role when I was tasked with redesigning the branding and website of a venture capital firm. Simon was recommended to me by a professional acquaintance with great praise, and rightly so. Throughout our collaboration, Simon demonstrated exceptional talent and professionalism. He committed to learn about the VC industry and came up with innovative, out-of-the-box proposals that resulted in an engaging, thoughtful product. He actively listened to our multiple, abstract requests and responded quickly to emails. I greatly appreciated Simon's organizational and project management skills, and how he aligned leadership and diplomacy in each interaction with the partners. He is a brilliant designer who is passionate about his professional and artistic work and dedicated to meeting clients' needs."

"I had the pleasure of working with Simon and Samuel for the launch of nolk.com. They have such great capacity in understanding the business objectives and their creative output is very reflective of this. They have a high standard for creative excellence and it's what I valued most about working with them. They are flexible people which also made the project fun and seamless. "

— Jessica Manchester, CBO at nolk



"Had a great experience working with Simon and Samuel! Their design proposition not only answered each of my demands for my personal website but exceeded my expectations. The whole process was very smooth and they responded well to feedback, with clever and beautiful solutions. Simon’s experience in branding is brilliantly applied to the way he goes about designing a website and Sam’s background as a graphic designer proved to be great and quite rare asset for a web developper. They make a great team and I would highly recommend 💞"

— Lian Benoit, Creative Director and Photographer



“I had the pleasure of working with Samuel and Simon on a full website design and build, getting us set up on Webflow from another platform. They are collaborative, creative and comprehensive in their approach, always making sure to understand our nuanced requirements. Their process, from open design files through to a solid handover was terrific; a top tier design team.”

— Franko, Head of Marketing, Investible
