Here’s what some of our previous clients have to say:

I was introduced to Mike through a contact at the Norwich University of the Arts. I needed someone who could create a visual summary of my company’s microplate technology. A few meetings and emails between Mike and myself resulted in exactly what was required – a simple yet elegant cartoon of how our microplate technology works. I will definitely be a return customer as Mike is very easy to speak to, he listens carefully to you, he delivers a quality product and I highly recommend him. In summary, an excellent collaboration.

Mike is a responsive, considered and talented Animator. He was able to quickly and articulately translate a verbal and written brief into an animated trailer for our community cinema scheme, Village Screen. He listened and responded effectively to feedback, he identified, welcomed and worked well with other creative providers and managed the process from start to finish in an efficient manner and with good humour.

We would be very happy to contract his creative services again and to recommend his work to others.

Mike has produced excellent animations for our website and for social media, these have been helpful in quickly communicating what coaching is about. Through skilful questioning Mike has helped us to think more clearly about the messages we want to communicate and the best ways of using animation to achieve that.

As an individual, Mike takes a great deal of care and attention to building open and honest working relationships. Mike is both observant and diligent in his approach, always checking in with us to safeguard our ideas and accuracy. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is hoping to create powerful animations to secure new business and communicate key messages.
