Client comments

"We have worked with Ocean on The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair for the last two years. We absolutely love working with Steven and Marianna, their ideas are brilliant and show a good understanding of our brand and our objectives. This year’s ‘instagram’ theme has been extremely popular amongst our target audience of young people, their teachers and parents; and the flexibility of the design has allowed us to use it on more materials than initially planned.

The marketing campaign for The Fair has many elements to it; some have long lead times and others will be last minute additions that need to be turned around quickly. In all cases Ocean deal with the project in a calm, professional manner and deliver great results on time and on budget.

We would definitely recommend working with Ocean; they are a delight to work with.”

“We have been working with Steven and his team since 2007 on a range of publications and other projects, in particular our newsletter and annual report – both of which have won MemCom awards since Ocean redesigned them.

Ocean work with high levels of creativity, but which is always appropriate to our audience.

Jobs are always produced on time and on budget, often in the face of our last-minute changes and challenging deadlines. Steven is unflappable and always calmly delivers an excellent product.

In fact, Ocean has become an extension of our team, since our in-house design resources have reduced, and we would certainly struggle without them.”

“I worked with Steven during my time at the RIBA. I found Steven to be professional, reliable and extremely hard working & we worked well together to produce some excellent work.

He never misses deadlines and does his upmost to deliver despite the brief changing numerous times! He is able to turn projects round very quickly and I would have no hesitation in recommending him for future work.”

Anokhee Karia
Marketing Executive, RIBA
“I have worked with Steven on a number of projects including conference branding and more recently a brand refresh project for the Small Business Charter.

Steven has been great to work with on both a professional and personal level. He is approachable, friendly and knowledgeable. He is an experienced designer that can and will deliver your vision and go that extra mile. This is really what makes Steven stand out.

From a client perspective, you want a designer who listens to your ideas, takes the time to understand your goals and vision, someone who is knowledgeable and reliable and at the same time not afraid to push the boundaries, someone you can call on and someone who is willing to give you guidance or suggestions when needed. With Steven, you will get all that and more.”
