I like to work with people I like

Building trust, gaining respect and working towards a common goal is the perfect relationship. But it’s not always easy.

After 34 years in the design business, I’ve worked with some fantastic people. I’ve built rewarding relationships with clients who were as excited as I was in creating something special that worked. There have also been clients who made me feel like giving up design and becoming a sheep farmer in the Outer Hebrides!

So what makes a good client? For me it’s someone who hires me to do a job because they like what I do, and how I do it. The best relationships are those where their is mutual respect and creative collaboration. Will we argue? Probably. Will we challenge each other? I hope so. The best work I’ve produced is in this type of relationship. Will I go the extra mile in this type of relationship? You bet!
