I would highly recommend James, he is a lovely down to earth guy, who is professional, timely and with a keen eye for detail."- James Purell, Trigonal Gaming

"James is a great source of inspiration. He's full of ideas and hugely enthusiastic about the role that great design can play. I needed help to visualise a complex set of data for a client presentation and James managed to untangle my thinking and create an incredibly effective graphic which 'sold' the idea. (And as a bonus, he did so well within the deadline.)" - Karen Birch
"I worked with James on two separate projects on the logos. James had the ability to be modern from the get go, fresh and bespoke. within a few emails we had signed off the design. Thankyou James. Volley rocks!" - Allan Lawrence, Online Business Consultant, WebCreation UK
