I was so impressed with Stuarts work and reviews that I decided to hire him from overseas. I had worked with other designers near me in the U.S. while trying establish a brand identity that would suit my company long term, but the process yielded poor results. I am extremely thankful I found Stuart! His approached our project being well informed of my vision and desires and I felt there was a mutual honesty at every step. Stuart is professional, understanding, and patient. I highly, HIGHLY recommend him for design work!read more
