Steve is a very talented and experienced designer with a creative eye that can adapt to multiple projects and sectors. He has the ability to offer viable and creative design solutions, whilst working under tight deadlines and extremely pressured working conditions.

Due to the nature of the business and the industry, the work we are involved in is extremely challenging in terms of reaction and timescales, whereas Steve always has a cool head under pressure, bags of patience and is a master at juggling numerous jobs at a time whilst managing expectations.

Passionate and highly motivated with a great sense of humour, Steve is extremely well liked by both his team, clients and external partners. He’s also been a fantastic manager and mentor to more junior members of the team.

Would highly recommend!

Francesca Woodward Marketing Director at High Street TV

I employed Steve at Coda (now UNIT4) as my lead designer, and worked with him for around 14 years. He is an excellent designer, highly creative, experienced with all key tools and able to take a brief and produce great work that generally exceeds your expectations. He understands corporate branding and designing within the constraints of brand guidelines while constantly delivering creative solutions to new challenges. He works well in a team and is always extremely well liked by his colleagues and internal customers, who appreciate his diligence, dedication and creativity.

Steve is a great designer: swiftly and with style! He produced tons of high quality marketing materials for different countries and in multiple languages. For example; movies, web content, a full colour 150 page Education brochure in French, Product Brochures in German and Success Stories in Dutch, it is no problem for Steve. Great planning, great communication and he knows how to properly entertain guests from abroad. (Our Global Marketing Meetings were great!)

Steve is a very talented Graphic Artist with a strong attention to detail and creative talent. I worked with Steve closely over my eight years with Unit4 and more recently as his direct Manager. Over that time, he collaborated and delivered some outstanding creativity in terms of print, presentations, web, display and branding projects.

Steve cares deeply about his work contributed significantly to establishing standards across the globe and to bringing consistency to our brand at Unit4 during the time we worked together. I would not hesitate to recommend Steve to anyone looking for a strong creative talent and diverse skill set.

I joined the Coda Creative team as the company’s copywriter about a year after Steve, and have worked with him for the past 14+ years since then.

Collaborating with Steve is a delight. He combines exceptional creativity with a sound commercial and practical awareness – always going the extra mile to understand and think about the messages being presented, so that the graphics and copy truly work together to maximum effect.

Having shared so many years of creative challenges and demanding deadlines, across so many media and audiences, I know better than anybody that you can always trust Steve not only to deliver but to deliver something remarkable.

Trevor DoldingSenior Creative Professional, Digital & Customer Marketing, Unit4

I worked with Steve on a large number of varying projects at HighStreet TV and he was great to work with. He delivered design creative on tight deadlines with solid professionalism. Would be a great addition as part of a team or working alone.

John Bramm Director, B to C Sales, High Street TV

I have had the pleasure of working with Steve for over seven years and his creative genius never fails to impress. He can translate complex technological concepts into graphics and designs that convey a strong message while being visually impactful and engaging. He is also open to new ideas and treatments and always delivers something new and fresh looking.

Steve’s focus and attention to detail are exemplary and his responsiveness has ensured that project deadlines are met even when requests are quite last minute and the quality of the output is consistently high.

On a personal level, Steve is calm, considered and very approachable; he’s a real asset to any team and organisation.

I have worked professionally along side Steve for over a year, both his work and attitude towards producing the highest standards in print and design have been consistent throughout.

I couldn’t recommend Steve highly enough and he make’s a top-class asset in any creative capacity.

Neil HewitsonCGI Lead Motion Designer

I’ve been working with Steve for over five years now – both on professional and personal projects. On a professional level, he understands the Unit4 brand and delivers creative and sharp designs that follow the corporate guidelines but also has a knack of listening to his customer. This allows him to deliver a balance of corporate identity with originality.

He also provides a variety of options and makes amendments to deliver the best design. Due to his creativeness and ability to get the job done, it was a no brainer to work with him on personal projects. He is talented in creating modern and unique designs in an efficient manner while sharing his experience and knowledge to educate his clients.

Overall, his perspective is innovative and fresh and he is up-to-date with the latest techniques and applications for the best possible outcome. Steve is excellent to work with, has a great sense of humor, and is a great asset to Unit4.

As the Manager Internal Communications at Unit4, I frequently call on Steve to help me put together internal comms items that need a creative touch. He is always available and responds extremely fast to my (sometimes) impossible deadlines!

He takes my ideas and brings them alive, and if what I would like to do doesn’t work so well, he makes excellent suggestions that improve the quality of the item that needs to be sent to our employees. His customer focus and teamwork are outstanding, and my life as an internal comms manager would be so much more boring and difficult without his help, advice and positive personality.

Steve is an outstanding talented designer – He has a high level of skill and always delivers on time. He is loyal, dedicated, reliable, and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him!

Cecilia AxlinderNordic PR & Communication Manager at Unit4

I have worked closely with Steve at Unit4 for the past 3 years. I have thrown many design challenges in his direction during that time. Steve is capable of taking an idea from a brief and producing creative artwork that is truly on brand. His professional and friendly manner is a delight to work with.

Elise ToulmanManager - UK and Ireland Campaign and Telemarketing Consultant teams

I worked closely with Steve at CODA (now Unit 4) for over six years and then during the first couple of years of FinancialForce. He is able to create wonderful graphics and logos under real time pressure. He really understands the end goal and ensures that all material is well integrated to achieve the overall theme. He’s very much a team player and a pleasure to work with.

Steve is a true professional within his field. A person with Steve’s skills in design and 3D make him an asset to any business he works for.

Lee StirkFounder & Creative Director at Enigma CreativeLinkedin

Steve’s design abilities are top notch. I continue to be impressed with the 3-D graphics he produces and the files he supplies to Platinum for printing require no pre-press amendments and can be sent straight to press – making my job easier. Keep up the good work Steve; a great guy to work with.

Nicola CrebbinGraphic Designer at PlatinumHPLLinkedin

I have worked with Steve on and off, both professionally and personally, since 2001.

Firstly as a colleague at CODA (Unit4) where he continuously supported the UK marketing plans wide ranging on and off line activity with great efficiency and enthusiasm.

I have since used Steve’s broad range of skills for my own business requirements and more recently to support a full rebrand and relaunch of an outside events and sports company.

Always works to brief whilst naturally adding his own instinctive creativity to give projects that all-important edge. Equally as comfortable providing concepts and turning them into something impressive.

As a marketing manager at one of the world’s largest educational software companies Steve continues to be my #1 go to creative!

I know Steve as a skilled, trustworthy and helpful remote resource – him in UK, me in Norway – always concerned about doing his best and meet deadlines.

Børre RødalNordic PR & Event Manager at Unit4 AS

It was my pleasure to be working with Steve during my first year at Unit4. He can translate complex concepts in the most creative and beautiful designs. You know he listens carefully because he never missed my underlying vision and feeling I wanted to portray with a design. This is not always the case in my experience but this is one of Steve’s main assets.

Steve is always open to feedback and new ideas, is calm, listens carefully and will focus on details. Also, his responsiveness ensures a deadline is always met.
