“Greg is soft spoken and hard driven. He's responsible for the fine finessed look of the current foxhead.com site as it lives today. He can take design direction or inspiration and run with it with little guidance. You can trust what this man touches with look slick and rich no matter what. He gives 110% and has the passion to make his projects look A++ under tight deadlines. Would recommend Greg for freelance logos and any web design you may have.”

“Greg is hands down one of the most creative people that I know and have had the pleasure to work with. The best thing about Greg is that you can give him a basic outline of an idea and he can flesh out many creative directions for the concept. I have felt so confident in the work that I knew Greg would produce that I have introduced new products to him and let him take the full creative lead from there.

Greg's work is always fresh and unique in design and layout. I have watched him develop his personal style over the years and now he had definitely developed a style all of his own.

Nothing is beyond his reach creatively; everything that I have asked for has been produced beyond expectation. All of his unique design concepts are innovative and out of the box executions.

On a recent project I asked for 2 layout design options, he brought me back 3. Greg always goes above and beyond. The third design was the one that I ultimately chose and have been happy with the direction of the project ever since.”
