Lesley Heath, Brand Manager, CITB-ConstructionSkills.
“Stephen spent time listening to and interpreting the requirements for the project to re-vitalise our photography library.
He then translated this into an approach which has resulted in a transformed look to the brand image of CITB-ConstructionSkills. Stephen was great to work with. Always had solutions to issues and didn’t bat an eyelid at the number of miles he had to cover to complete the project!
Thank you Stephen, it would be great to work with you again in the future.”
