Testimonial
Simon is a truly talented graphic designer and illustrator who very professionally, patiently and good-humoredly worked with me on my 'Organize Me!' logo and illustration. He was always very prompt at responding and following-up, something which is very important to me. I cannot recommend Simon highly enough if you want an one-of-a-kind illustration everybody will love!
