"We have commissioned many maps from Mike in recent years. He is always a pleasure to work with: friendly, creative and efficient. He’s got brilliant range and has tackled every project brief we’ve thrown at him with dexterity and style: from period maps of Rome and Glasgow to contemporary maps of Oslo and Kiev. The results have been wonderful, and cherished by our authors and readers. Thank you Mike!"
Mikaela Pedlow, Harvill Secker
"We approached Mike to illustrate a map for the Epsom Derby, and we were very pleased with his availability, flexibility and reactiveness to comments and directions. The whole process was quick and relaxed, the finished map is brilliant and the client is absolutely delighted with it!"
Jérôme Favre, LMC
"It was great to work with Mike. He’s quick, accurate and well-organised. We look forward to working with him again on our future map projects."
Derek Power, University of Westminster
"Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with for BBC Countryfile Live and we wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again. He followed the brief perfectly and was incredibly efficient, worked quickly to meet our deadlines whilst always keeping us informed of his progress. We thoroughly enjoyed the process and would highly recommend Mike’s work."
Olivia Mossop, SME London
"We recently commissioned Mike to produce a map for one of our clients having seen examples of his other work online. Without ever having visited the site and only seeing aerial images and photographs, he created a like-for-like, extremely detailed illustration. Mike was really easy to work with and very efficient and both us and our client were thrilled with the finished map. We’ll certainly be using him again."
Sarah Meakins, Chalk & Ward
"We commissioned Mike to illustrate ten of our built projects for Make’s 2013 annual publication, which is a special tenth anniversary edition. We were looking for an illustrator who could capture our buildings with a unique yet timeless style, and when we came across Mike’s London Landmarks project we thought he matched our brief perfectly. It has been a pleasure to work with him throughout the design process and we are delighted with the end result."
Alice Bosc, Make Architects
“Mike followed our brief perfectly. We needed some maps that would evoke our habit of looking at life through a sepia tinted lens. The results were great. He captured our company’s vibe perfectly and in doing so, demonstrated just how adaptable his work is. It was a delight to work with him from start to finish and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his skills to anyone.”
Ginny Dale, Dishoom
"The scope of imagination and skill needed to bring our project to completion was extensive but Mike proved himself to be the ideal man for the job. It is clear that Mike has a great ability for interpreting briefs as well as an impeccable skill for keeping clients informed and involved throughout the process. This is the first project we have worked with Mike on but we will certainly be working with him again."
William Hughes, Mediarun
"We recently commissioned Mike to create a set of illustrations for a property project for which his style was spot on. A wonderful set of illustrations that captured the essence of the area and character of the restored Victorian property helped shape up a distinctive brand with a strong identity. Mike was great to work with, his illustrations impressed everyone."
Richard Stevens, Philosophy
"Mike has worked with DK publishing on several projects (including SPY and DK Reads: Twister). He only needs skeletal briefing notes which he translates into amazing pieces of art. His work on our SPY book was so intricate with careful attention to the character's features that it dropped into the book perfectly. The perspective was so realistic yet fun, Mike has such a good interpretation and way of processing his surroundings and putting that onto paper. And on top of all this, he is one of the friendliest and easiest going artists I've ever worked with."
Hoa Luc, Dorling Kindersley
"Mike lead on the conceptualisation and production our Romford Cycle Map. He proved to be the ideal illustrator to go with for the proposal. He uniquely combines being a talented and creative illustrator; possessing a keen understanding of the maps and cartography; and a can-do helpful attitude. A great person to have on your team."
