Ben rapidly assimilated a significant understanding of our business and our vision. He skillfully steered our thinking, challenged our personal views and prejudices and managed the input and opinion of multiple members of our organisation spanning the London, US and Brazil offices. Not only did we learn a lot about the design process, but there’s unanimous approval of and appreciation for the design Ben came up with. His open and timely communication, egoless and unpretentious attitude and firm but unassuming expertise were a pleasure to work with. He’s top of our list for our next design project and I’d not hesitate to recommend him.
— Stu McLellan, Lead Software Architect, Music Jobs Ltd. Hired Ben for usability testing, prototyping, branding and visual design work in 2010.
Ben really understands the creative design process, with a focus on usability – so important (and rare) – and kept the project on-point to deliver the most effective results against a complex brief. He takes this understanding, commitment and enthusiasm right the way through to creation of clean and structured CSS code. He was – and remains – a valuable asset to the team building the business.
— Alex Kelleher, Founder CEO Cognitive Match. Hired Ben for interface design work in 2008.
Ben has proved of enormous benefit to the team in a range of design projects both for University and external customers. He produces high-quality designs tied to customer business objectives. He has a natural eye for usability issues and can back this with structured user research. Ben also delivers strong technical skills in CSS coding and understanding of packages, tools and frameworks.
Ben’s hard work and attention to detail allowed us to deliver a major project for a UK Government department on-schedule and on-budget.
— Nick Renny, Technical Director at XM London. Hired Ben as a front-end developer in 2007.
Ben is one of the best developers I’ve worked with (and I’ve worked with a few!). He has a rare talent – he can process development, design and usability issues into well thought through and productive outcomes. This results in a smooth, honest and open working process and top notch results. See http://www.shipserv.com for an example. Great, great work. Recommend highly.
— Roger Warner, Director at Velocity Partners. Hired Ben as a web developer in 2008.
Ben is a very talented, meticulous and solid web designer who knows his HTML and CSS inside out. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
