"John routinely produces fantastic results. Whether it's an open ended project that requires out of the box creativity or a product update push with an aggressive deadline he never failed to deliver both creative and functionally sound design and development work. Don't gloss over the use of "development" in the last sentence - he can do that as well as design!"
Nathan Parker (Manager, Technology Services at Deloitte Recap LLC)
"A picture tells 1,000 words, but John's designs go way beyond that -- mere writing can't do justice to describing his talents. See for yourself: the proof is in his portfolio. I can't recommend him enough."
