Simon was responsible in delivering digital skills for digital portfolio unit, he was responsible delivering Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Wordpress. I can therefore confirm that Simon has proficient knowledge of the named software/technologies. In his time at University of the Art London he has demonstrated great awareness of the digital arena and excellent work ethics. I would happily work with Simon as I consider him to be a valuable member of the team, who consistently achieved good results and delivers all expectations.

I've just finished two days Photoshop training with Simon and have certainly walked away feeling more confident handling the software and more inspired to create much-improved graphics and designs. Simon certainly has vast software knowledge, as well as a genuine understanding of brand and design. There is no challenge or question that he can't tackle!
