<TESTIMONIALS>

It was great working with Dan to develop the Licensing School brand.  He took time to fully understand what was important to us, both as a business and from an individual perspective, worked in a structured and methodical way throughout the development process, and developed a number of creative options for us to review. After we selected the final design, he worked with us to deliver the final brand platform, which we are pleased with.
Paul Burgum, Head Master at Licensing School
Dan assisted us with the creation of our company branding. He has a natural talent for developing ideas, combined with a capacity for iconic thinking, brand understanding, and vision. His attention to detail goes hand in hand with his enthusiasm; his capacity to produce a sound service was first class; his commitment to deliver this project on time and within budget, represented an understanding of business objectives. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dan’s services.
Chris Whitworth, MD at End2End Management
Dan is a hard-working, talented young designer with major potential. He is creative, has a great eye for design and never runs out of energy! He was a key player in a large project that was active during the summer of 2011. He is committed and constantly innovative in his ideas and approach. I really enjoyed his time with us.
Paul Iddon, MD at Agency Spring UK
DAB Designs created such iconic artwork for Nor Lye Festival’s 10th anniversary that we have now adopted this as our permanent logo. ‘Beardy Dude’ is now synonymous with Nor Lye, to the point where we don’t even need a title or caption: people recognise its us just from the eye-catching logo.
Sam Burgum, Festival Management at Nor Lye Festival
Dan worked on various live briefs for our clients including food packaging for Aldi & a huge bid proposal for a regeneration project, working long hours, with accuracy & attention to detail. Dan was also involved in briefing sessions & provided valuable input. He worked well as part of the team & was very outgoing & sociable.
