Collins & Co "I have had the pleasure of working with Lynne over the past few years. A consummate professional, she is a Class A Design and Project Manager. She flies between big strategic concepts and the minutia of detail with seemingly little effort. Lynne is an expert in areas many designers are somewhat lacking in and she really does always deliver." Emma Collins

Mytton Williams, Bath "We have worked with Lynne for a number of years. This has included helping to develop our strategy and promotional activities. Her knowledge of design at a strategy level and the design process is excellent. Her practical experience of the client perspective is great and backs up the ideas she brings. Without Lynne's input we wouldn't have created a series of articles in the same way and these have significantly helped our new business development. She is a delight to work with, brings a wealth of knowledge, understanding and experience to every project." Bob Mytton, Partner and Creative Director
