I’m pleased to offer a reference in regard to the amazing service you offer. In my capacity as General Manager of Martinborough Vineyard (to August 2010) I’ve worked with Simon now for around 8 years. Over this time Simon provided me and the company with an invaluable design service.
Over the years the following are the highlights for me of your design work:
- The launch of the inaugural 2003 Marie Zelie Reserve Pinot Noir. This included the website, tasting note booklet, label and boxing. This was launched as a wine representing the very pinnacle of New Zealand Pinot Noir and was the country’s most expensive red wine. The design and branding you presented completely fulfilled the brief and was received with awe. It was elegant, refined and sophisticated with heritage all of which personified the wine itself.
- The re-design of the company labels. Taking a label that had been in existence for 20 years and modernising it without losing any of the heritage and creditability that the old label was recognized for.
You have always been so incredibly easy to work with, so accommodating with our needs, and so professional.
I look forward to working with you again in another role.
