“Kobus designed and built my film production company brand identity and website. Can highly recommend!”

Humayun Mirza,
Film Director, Spirit Bear Films, UK

“Looking for that personal touch that you might not get in a big firm, I would 100% advise you to give Kobus a call!”

Chantal McCormick/Daly,
ECD & CEO, Fidget Feet Aerial Dance, IE

“Kobus manages to balance complete professionalism with a truly unique and hilarious character – which has been essential at balancing the busy studio he managed.

From a professional perspective his attention to detail, understanding of creativity and unsurpassed work ethic made him a permanent support and always trustworthy character.

Whether re-touching, artworking, designing or managing others in the team, Kobus was always calm, considered, clear and structured – a real asset to the team.

Personality-wise you couldn’t ask for a sunnier, funnier individual who brought a truly special mood to the studio which is sorely missed – when times get tough and nights are late (as they often are!) Kobus was a crucial part of morale boosting to get us all over the final hurdle.

I wholly recommend him to any team – he’s a gem.”

Eilidh Ratcliffe
Group Creative Director, House 337, UK

“I worked with Kobus regularly when he freelanced at GDR for our quarterly Innovation Reports. I really enjoyed working with him – as well as being quick, efficient and hugely talented, he frequently came up with creative new solutions that kept our reports looking fresh and current, without straying from our overall company image.

He has loads of enthusiasm and a great sense of humour, and he got on fantastically well with our whole team. Would jump at the opportunity to work together again.”
