Three key things I liked about working with Craig, he listened, he came back with 3 different concepts that reflected what I was after in different ways, he did everything in collaboration as we refined the concept into a banner that I’m delighted with. On time, on budget and spot-on design work – I’d recommend him to anyone.

Craig supported Oaklea with our recent Employee Conference in November 2017.  Craig met with Oaklea Team Manager’s and Customer’s across a large geographical area and filmed videos of our employees and customer’s ‘getting involved’ in the community.  Craig collated the videos using Oaklea branding and worked with myself to fit with the vision of the Employee Conference. The videos were exactly what we had asked for and they were great to see at the conference.  Craig made QR codes and the videos can now be accessed via social media’
