Ian does excellent work. He recently helped me create marketing materials (a promo video and email templates) for a company-wide photography contest pilot. He went above and beyond to catch our employees’ attention. I wouldn’t have gotten the number of responses I did without his unique designs. He goes above and beyond to capture his audience’s attention.

I have been working for Savannah River Site for 29 years, and have never seen anyone as creative as Ian. He always demonstrates a high degree of originality and creativity. His working knowledge of so many different design software packages is astonishing and coupled with his keen ability to make them work seamlessly together… our customers are very pleased! I wish I had the budget for several more employees like Ian!
