Success Stories

I asked people what they think about working with me, here's what they said!
Andy is a talented and imaginative designer. He has taken on projects often completing work within very tight deadlines. He is friendly and has a great attitude. I look forward to the next time I get to work with him!
Andy Esser
Andy worked with us to develop the mascot illustration for our 'Aardvark SEO' addon for the Statamic CMS. With loose brief, he quickly got a sense for what we imagined and quickly iterated through some versions until we got something we were really happy with. Andy was great value, we'll be using him again and I have no hesitation to recommend him to others.
Mark Williams-Cook
We had got to know Andy on Twitter over the past few years. When we needed something different for one of our clients, we approached Andy because we knew he had a very strong design style. Everyone loved the design he produced. Since then we have given him more of our work and have to say that Andy is amazing to work with. He is very personable, creative, flexible, super helpful, and does everything on time. It is a real joy to work with such a professional.

Andy's work on the Freelance Introvert cover was superb. He took my half-formed ideas and turned them into a fun, memorable character that captured everything I wanted to say. Then he created a strong, eye-catching design with the power to cut through in a crowded marketplace. Overall, I'm delighted with Andy's work and would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone looking for illustration or design.

Andy has completed multiple pieces of design work for me, on both professional and personal projects. He is able to pinpoint exactly what you need in terms of style and aesthetic and then take it a stage further and make it uniquely yours. Andy is extremely focused, hits his deadlines, and produces high quality work. He is great to work with, knowledgeable, reliable and professional. I would never consider going anywhere else for my design work.

Andy worked on the new logo and mascot for my business. I'm really pleased with the design he produced, and would definitely work with him again in the future! Strongly recommend
Ellie Huxtable
I asked Andy to come up with a logo and type. While the end result may look simplistic, it was helpful for the decision makers to have some ideas about what they could have and what they felt would work. The resulting package provided a number of different layouts, combinations, and file types, allowing the client to be ready for publications of all shapes and sizes for many years to come. Andy took feedback on board and came up with a number of different options, all within budget.
Ben Hutton
Andy has carried out a wide range of work for my company from logos to user interface design of my software. The mock ups for the user interfaces for my software were particularly useful as it allowed me to create a clean and decluttered design. Whenever I needed to make new screens I found it very straightforward as the theme Andy created was clear and easy to follow. Andy has also created a website and helped produce the manuals for the software giving the product a professional look and feel. Andy is friendly, communicates well and easy to work with – I thoroughly recommend him and will certainly use him for future projects.

Andy's style is unique, cute and wonderful. He manages to capture objects & personalities in immense detail yet minimal at the same time - it blows my mind! Hire him, hire him now!
Alex Scotton
Working with Andy has been an absolute joy and I don't think I would've gotten to this point in building out my publication without him. He's not only kind, but super responsive and always receptive to feedback. There's no idea too weird, too small, or too big—he's always willing to hear me out and help mold the idea into something better. And no matter what, the work he delivers has always blown away even my highest expectations.
Kevin Humdrum
I've been working with Andy for YEARS on a number of different projects ranging from a card game to graphic design work. I've also utilized his services for gifts and just projects for fun. He is extremely versatile and has a great range. He listens, he suggests, and he works with me, not for or against me. I can rely on him creatively and professionally. On the multitude of projects we've done he's never once let me down. Professionalism is important to me. I've dealt with outside contractors before that don't understand deadlines and that work is, well, work! Andy is a true professional. He's also flexible and brings enthusiasm and his own ideas to the table. He is an excellent collaborator and that strengthens the results.

Andy is quite simply one of the cornerstones of our business, without his graphic design and technical input we would wobble! Andy is incredibly efficient, dependable and frankly just really good at what he does .... highly recommended.

I worked with Andy to design a logo for my business that would work for print and web at small and large sizes. He was very attentive, focused, professional, patient, and helpful. He produced multiple samples which we refined over several iterations before the final work was completed. Andy provided all the files I could want including photoshop files. I really appreciate the effort Andy put into my design and am very pleased with the work he produced. Recommended!
