You are not a brand consultant. You are not a web designer. 
Yet you did all of these things.”

Some kind words

“Hannah is succinct and methodical in her approach, whilst presenting ideas and concepts with clarity and enthusiasm.

This attention to detail and appreciation for high quality work always makes us look forward to Hannah’s projects.”

Joe Morgan, Creative Director, Mocha TV

“Working with Hannah is a delight. A clear thinker with an eye for cut-through creative, she is a safe pair of hands for any task. She questions briefs and delves deeper to get a feel for a brand, and tackles every job – large or small – will the same resolve.

As an art director, she utilizes strong design skills to execute her concepts to a high level, while hitting deadlines and budgets with ease. On a personal level, she is witty, sharp and an excellent lunch companion.” 

Liliana Inguanti, General Manager, Faith, Hope and Patience B.V.

 

"It was great working with Hannah on the shoot location, she was extremely organised, and kept the shooting on track.

She was engaged in the process, and made our job easy. At the lunch break, she asked for, our opinion and advice on how best to extract what was needed from the interviewee, and worked swiftly to ensure we could move forward. She clearly understood what the company need was in this project, and suggested numerous alternatives, and qualified the benefits and disadvantages of each. 

Overall, she did an excellent job, especially considering (as I understand it) her role is a Graphic Designer.”
