"Simon's work with us has been influential in winning recent pitches. He brings a level of professionalism to our pitches (and our existing clients), that really helps sell in our ideas. He takes a brief very well - and quickly gets his head around what is asked of him. He also worked very efficiently under pressure, put in extra hours when needed. He's also great company - which helps in the stressful conditions of pitch preparation."
"It is his innovative, contemporary style and genuine concern and commitment to projects that makes Simon stand out as a designer. ... I would wholeheartedly recommend him – knowing that he could bring to life any design brief and exceed expectations every time!"
"I worked with Simon on the Global Nokia account..he is a good thinker and fast worker. With big jobs and short deadlines things could get very hectic, In such occasions Simon was one of the people to make sure deadlines were met and creative levels were held high."
"Simon listens, does his research and then comes up with brilliant, workable ideas that make you wonder if he's actually inside your head!"
"My company hired Simon as a Senior Graphic Designer and I was his creative director. He's a lovely guy, was great to work with and produced some highly creative and impressive work. He has a natural flair for branding and both print & web design which was a real asset!"
"Simon was recommended to us as a creative and imaginative designer able to capture the spirit of our company and give us the ideal professional image - he didn't disappoint. His designs brought our website and marketing materials to life. His work has always met our demands and exceeded our expectations."
"Simon is a pleasure to work with he takes time to understand the brief and in my experience has always delivered exceptional work. For those wishing to build a brand or enhance one through the all important imagery, graphic design and visual communication Simon Vince is one of the best I have worked with"
"We absolutely love the design you have done for us- thanks so much! It has really exceeded our expectations. All of our work is on a shoe string but your design work shows us that it doesn’t have to look like we are! You’ve been a breath of fresh air to work with and we would love to work with you again wherever we can.
"Simon is truly a great person to work along side, especially in pitch mode where he makes the process less painful by easily understanding any brief and naturally coming up with the best solutions! ... I honestly hope one day he´ll give up freelancing and join our team at Digitas LBi."
"Simon and I just finished working together on a 2-day 'phase 1' branding project for my startup. I was very impressed with how many great ideas he's generated in such a short period of time - exactly what we were after! In general, it was a pleasure working with him - a good communicator and overall very professional. I'm sure we'll do a lot more together going forward."
"Simon has been working with us on various projects for quite a while now - it's always a pleasure to work with him. Simon is fast, efficient, and also very adaptable to changing priorities and requests from end-clients. I would highly recommend him."
"Simon is an experienced and accomplished designer. Innovative and with a good knowledge of all aspects of the design process, he is able to work at speed, on brief and with a great attention to detail. Simon is a genuinely nice guy, who would add greatly to any creative dept."
