I have known the guys at Make Complex Simple for a number of years. Back then I worked in law and they developed the most innovative campaign that I have ever been involved in. They just 'got it', right from the moment I met them. The campaign was a great success and attracted a lot of commentary from competition. I am no longer in the legal profession, but am looking forward to working with them again in my new role in the charity sector.

Make Complex Simple delivers exactly what their name promises. Their work on our new branding and website has made a significant contribution to the visual transformation of our business over the last 12 months. From creative direction to technical know-how, their positive and responsive approach to problem solving has made my project managing the process much easier. Fun to work with too, I thoroughly recommend them.
