"I was in charge of finding creative talents on Behance for our "New Creative" campaign at Adobe. The idea was to elect the most creative talents in Europe. Gavin's work quickly made it to the top of the list and he's one of the first official Adobe New Creatives. He's also a great speaker, and we invited him to share his passion with other designers at our New Creative event in London."

"I have found Gavin to be incredibly flexible, creative and original with our briefs. Co-ordinating conversations between a host of various brands and artists on our roster, it is important to visually create something attention-grabbing which we can essentially use to tailor the various elements of the potential campaign for each individual project, giving us the ability to put out a single coordinated message. He has definitely helped to cement a few of our projects by visually constructing our vision for brand partnerships".

"As part of our sponsorship of the Gadget Show, we developed a social interactive idea that Gavin was at the heart of. He was quick, efficient with excellent interpersonal skills, interacting brilliantly with the crowds and was a pleasure to work with. We saw all our key social metrics increase due to the excellent quality of the creative output and high standards Gavin employed across the designs and I’m pleased to say that we were shortlisted at the DADI Awards for best interactive campaign".
