Fabian is a single-handed comms, design and web development department. I hired him in 2010 and he grew his role, his responsibility and his skill-set constantly over the seven years we worked together. He embraced each new project and each opportunity to learn something new. He has great imagination and vision and can create new brands that encompass all materials and aspects of a venture. He is a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

I had the pleasure of working with Fabian at Integro Insurance Brokers. During my time there, my primary focus was to drive business development which meant that I was always in need of new and creative marketing ideas. Knowing that it is always better to play to your strengths and outsource your weaknesses, I relied heavily on Fabian to come with new and exciting ways to entice prospective clients to do business with Integro and he never let me down.
