Organisation: Saxenburg Wine

Client: Lynda Mellor

Details of the Recommendation:

“I have worked with Gavin/GADesign on many projects from leaflets & literature to advertising campaigns. He has brought fresh ideas & new concepts to material which enhances all our brand values.

GADesign has produced material for our use in international markets and multi-lingual material too. Most projects have been “managed” remotely as I am rarely in South Africa. I not only endorse his technical skills as a graphic designer but his communication skills have ensured that despite our long-distant working relationship, all our projects have been managed to a consistently high standard and delivered on budget, and on time. I have no doubt there are 1000′s of graphic designers between Europe and Africa however GADesign are my preferred supplier every time.”
