"I have worked with Mark for nearly 2 years now and have to say that it has always been fun. He is an excellent communicator and he gets on with people. He makes things happen. He makes it clear what he wants and how he wants it & that's incredibly important in design. I like the team at Sycamore Design. They know what they are doing & they have great energy. They all give back freely to their communities too and I like hearing about all of their latest exploits. When I talked to Mark about my business and it's identity I realised quickly that he is not only creative but incredibly intuitive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone thinking of re-branding. Do call him."

"Mark is an excellent networker as well as a thoroughly helpful and decent man. He shares his experience willingly as I found out last week at the BNI conference in Kuala Lumpur. His previous experience of such an event as well as that of SE Asia helped me make the most of my time there. His company was both invaluable from a business point of view and an absolute pleasure from a social aspect. Mark is a highly recommended individual."
