Hi, welcome to design:forge

A digital-forward creative agency making brands live up to their full potential.
That’s it.

Neil has a rare talent of being able to join a project team and hit the ground running, he is a prolific worker who rarely makes errors and whose productivity and energy is just what you need when timelines are tight.

He is modestly very knowledgeable and everyone trusts his judgement, added to which we really like him...

Mark Sinclair, CEO, Quickheart Ltd

...what I enjoy most about working with Neil is his attention to detail and his suggestions to improve whatever we are working on. Some designers just give you what you ask for - but Neil gives you what you actually need. That has a real impact on my results.

Hannah Foreman-Wenneker, Head of Researcher Relations, Elsevier

I have collaborated with Neil on many projects over the last few years. Equally strong in online and print design, he consistently delivers clean and creative designs - often within restrictive branding guidelines.

One of Neil's strengths is asking the right questions so he understands the end user and can apply this to projects. He is imaginative, skilled, hardworking and flexible ...a few of the reasons that make him my designer of choice for so many projects.

Rachel Guest, Freelance Marketing Consultant

I have worked with Neil for many years and have found his design and web development acumen to be first class. Neil is very personable, highly professional and passionate about creativity in web design.

He is a no-nonsense fountain of wisdom on web design practice and worldly goings on in the field. If I need freelance or project based design work done, on time and to a high spec with minimum hassle, I call Neil...

Tom Clark, Chief Officer, Business & Product Innovation, Emerald Publishing Group

...an impressive mix of both highly creative and highly technical skills. Neil is able to quickly translate business objectives into specific technical deliverables - suggesting ideas, and improvements, based upon his many years of agency & client-side experience. In short, I have no hesitation in recommending Neil.
