WHY HIRE ME?
I’ve got over 15 years’ experience working with bands, DJs, artists, record labels, recording studios, magazines, tour/event/promotion companies, music colleges and youth charities.
I can take your project (big or small) from idea through creation to completion and delivery. I'm very happy taking on long term work with brands, bands and labels to keep a consistent look through their promotional art and design. Whether that is branding, promotional artwork, photography, clothing collections, T-shirt designs, gig posters, reprographics, production management or even just having a creative you can count on to create what you need when you need it.
But don't just take my word for it, check out this small selection of testimonials from some of my awesome clients...
“Mark has always over delivered in a timely and professional manner that makes a huge difference to many of the art people I have worked with over the last 25 years. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”
Al Dawson – Earache Records
“I have worked with Mark for a few years, he’s extremely talented, has fantastic ideas and delivers on time! Highly recommended. 5 stars. Icing on the cake is he’s a really nice guy too!”
Dan Hardingham – Earache Records
“Mark designed some graphics for thenoisecartel.com – from a very simple brief, Mark created the perfect icons for our requirements and I’m extremely happy with his work. He knew exactly what we were after, delivered visuals very quickly and also reacted very quickly to the small adjustments requested.”
Adam Sagir - The Noise Cartel
"Mark has been working with Metal Hammer for a good couple of years now and is a valued member of the extended team. With Mark, you know you are in safe hands, whether it's a detailed or loose brief, he brings lots of ideas and enthusiasm to every project and he has a great understanding of what it is that we want (even if we're not always sure ourselves!) No brief is too much trouble and he is always a pleasure to work with. Always professional, versatile in design style, sticks to deadlines and eternally creative"
Louise Brock - Art Director @ Metal Hammer Magazine
“Mark is an incredible talent and has an unbelievable work ethic. Despite the ridiculous lead times that I set, he’s always over delivered in heroic times. I cannot recommend highly enough.”
Tony Boden - Artery Global
“Mark is super patient – especially when being bombarded with endless questions, and has excellent attention to detail! I highly recommend him for design work, and found him personable and easy to work with.”
Becky Laverty Press & Communications at Roadburn Festival, Damnation Festival & Prosthetic Records
“Above all Mark is a skilled designer and a thoroughly nice chap. Being able to throw him jobs at short notice, to ask for advice on print matters, and load him up with longer term projects is like having an extra member of the team. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a talented designer with expertise in print and a safe pair of hands. 5 stars.”
Alex Hornsby - Fire Records
“We have been working with Mark (ASYLUMseventy7) for over a year now and he has always delivered the goods. No matter what creative project we have passed his way we have always ended up with an amazing end result loved by our artists and their management alike. A consummate professional and amazing creative”
John-Paul Denton – Circus Records
We at One Little Independent can thoroughly recommend Mark. He has worked with a whole range of our artists helping with design, font choices, layout and packaging styles, and I can sincerely say that everyone has loved him.
He’s considerate and patient as well as being brilliant, sometimes I don’t know how he does it! Mark makes my job so much easier, I don’t know what I’d do without him!
Sue Birkett - One Little Independent Records
“Mark took on a last minute illustration job for me that required great attention to detail. He was very efficient and the end result looked ace!”
Marcus Knight – Cooking Vinyl
