Testimonials

Akshay Dashrath
CEO
South India Coffee Company, Tengio

We’ve been working with Sam for a few years now, so when we needed someone to engineer the SICC website we knew we were in safe hands.

He took our desktop designs and delivered a slick responsive website that was well written and documented, allowing us to easily add new content in the future. As he worked onsite, we could easily tweak the design and copy during development leading to a quick and painless process.

Vicky Stephens
Project Manager
Institute of Physics (Former)

Sam played an integral role in all of our work with Amphio. He established a new visual identity for our digital services, contributed hugely to design sprints and delivered high‑quality work as part of the Scrum team.

As a project manager, being able to work with the same designer from initial concept through UX, UI and front‑end development made the process so much more efficient and consistent. Sam’s approach is friendly and professional – he's open to feedback and can clearly communicate his ideas to stakeholders. He’s a pleasure to work with!

Louise Rice
CEO
Amphio (Former), Touchpress (Former)

From running sprints, designing apps or rebranding the company Sam always delivered. By handling design and front‑end development he increased Amphio’s capacity to deliver more projects.
