Praise for the 20th Century jacket
The anthology has just been delivered and it looks superb. Thanks you so much for doing such a lovely job. The cover is a thing of beauty and a joy for ever. There is such a lot of design intelligence at work in its use of both detail and totality, and the mix of colours is so memorably unusual, that it deserves some sort of reward.
Sarah Watkins, Brand Manager
Toby always understands what we need and delivers excellent results consistently. I would definitely recommend Toby if you are looking for a creative designer who provides a prompt and precise service.
Richard Sullivan, Managing Director
(Toby) combines a great design eye, superlative experience and creative talent with a rigorous work ethic and an organised approach to projects. What this means is that you get a great piece of design AND you get it on time and on budget. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Katie Johnson, Digital Marketing Manager
Toby is a very creative designer who, sometimes with even the barest of briefs, manages to produce brilliant book jackets, advertising, blads, pitch documents, postcards, proof covers - anything, really! Great to work with and definitely recommended.
