“I chose Graham to completely overhaul the design of my app because of the work I saw on his website. To me his designs have an engaging, human quality. He understands that the best apps exert an emotional pull on the user. Once he started working on my app he immediately saw the problems and came up with simple, elegant solutions. He unified the navigation motif, introduced controls that echoed what users were used to and breathed new life into the design. Throughout the process he was quick to respond and a pleasure to work with. I don’t yet know if my app will be successful but I do believe that Graham’s designs give it the best chance possible.”
Founder & CEO at Orrb Technologies Limited
“Graham is an excellent UX/UI strategist and designer. He translated our vision into a design that exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend Graham’s to anyone looking for UX/UI skills.”
Co-Founder at Sensoria Inc.
“I came across Graham’s portfolio when looking for a UX designer to create concepts for our Sensoria Fitness app, which connects mobile phones to our Sensoria Fitness smart socks and other sensors embedded in sports clothing.
He quickly got up to speed producing wireframes to help shape the user expierence. He understood the power of our technology and asked the right questions to gather all the information he needed to create the first concepts.
These designs were crucial in helping us to exceed our initial crowd funding target. We then worked together to iterate the concepts for the final production design.
Graham also worked closely with our partners in London, presenting to their teams and championing our product.
I feel lucky and smile every time when I think how I stumbled on his portfolio. Among all the UX Designers out there, we found the right one.”
Publishing Director, Peter Owen Publishers
“Graham recently designed a handsome and accessible new website for our book publishing company. It works well both for those who reach our site intentionally and for those who discover our authors and book list via a link. Moreover it has proved extremely user-friendly for Peter Owen Publishers staff who need to be able to update the site. Graham’s suggestions for enhancing sales and increasing reader usability have been extremely valuable, and we have been impressed by the amount of time he spent explaining various options to us and, at the end of the process, providing us with an easy-to-follow user manual. He has been a pleasure to work with, and we feel his fee has been money well spent. We have no hesitation in recommending his skills highly to others.”
Publisher, Peter Owen Publishers
“Peter Owen Publishers have commissioned Graham Todman not once, but twice whilst in the process of updating our website. Graham’s flair for design, attention to detail and expert handling ensured a seamless process for us. I heartily recommend him to all. October 9, 2014.”
Owner, Easy Gourmet Catering
“When I first met Graham, I had already had one false start with redesigning the Easy Gourmet logo and website. The experience with my previous designer had been a bitter disappointment. Although I’d already paid for a lot of the work, the results were not looking good, so I decided to cut my losses and start again. That was when I met Graham.
He was recommended to me by a friend – though I was still cautious, as I’d found the previous designer through a personal recommendation too. Fortunately, my worries proved entirely unfounded. After just three days on the case, Graham had arrived at the perfect logo, and I realised that this time, Easy Gourmet was going to get a stunning makeover.
Graham went on to build a website, tailor its structure according to my whims, provide all the Facebook, email and other links I needed, and tutor me on how to post news items. He was always quick to respond to any requests, was utterly professional in everything he did, and I have great respect for his visual sense. The end product is absolutely beautiful … I’m 200% happy!
What’s more, the amount Graham charged for his efforts was extremely reasonable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for similar work to anyone else. In fact, I’m already using him for my next project, and I hope to be able to draw on his talents for a long time to come. So … thank you Graham! Your hard work has given Easy Gourmet a really stylish new start.” July 1, 2011.
