Phil helped me out massively when I first came over to England, editing my articles when we worked together on Soccer Investor magazine. He is also the funniest person I know.
Phil has helped us create some lovely artwork for marketing purposes for our Africa travel company over the years. He is always very helpful and interpreted what we discussed as our aim into designs that had exactly the feel we were after. He got back very quickly with required alterations in order to reach deadlines and was very easy to work with. I hope we can continue to do so.

I have worked and known Phil for more than 10 years. In that time he has consistently been one of the most talented, hardworking and reliable members of our production teams, either when he has been employed full-time or on a freelance basis. He has continually proven to be able to rise to any challenge we have thrown at him with the sort flexibility and tenacity that is required in a modern digital publishing business. I would thoroughly recommend Phil to any business looking for someone unflappable with an ability to turn his hand to a range of challenges.

Phil is a remarkably safe pair of hands. He has an enviable ability to focus and just get on with the work at hand and, when that’s done, to move on to the next thing with a clear sense of purpose. Over his eight years at Gecko Publishing, he has steered the production of 30+ magazines each year with patience and diligence, hitting deadlines and keeping the team on track. Beyond the production process, he has proven to be a very able editor, a competent designer, an entertaining and amusing writer and has been reliable and efficient when communicating with our customers. He has turned his hand to any task given and executed well and efficiently. If you want a reliable, multi-skilled production man, I would recommend Phil without hesitation.

Incredibly quick, incredibly resourceful and incredibly nice to work with, Phil is a good all-rounder – editing, subbing, print, production and even a bit of designing. He is a great asset to have in any workplace. I have worked with him on projects that simply could not have existed without his speed, initiative and imagination. An absolute gem!
