" It was a pleasure to work with Miles and his team from the point of our initial enquiry right through to receiving the finished product. From the beginning he was enthusiastic and responsive, coming back with sketches & ideas very quickly. We were kept informed of progress with detailed photographs that enabled us to make any necessary changes. As a collaborative process this worked very well. He was clear about what could be achieved within a short lead time & pulled out all the stops when the handover date was brought forward due to schedule changes.
The final product was testament to the skill, dexterity and attention to detail of Miles and his team."
