"Phil does excellent work. He's highly creative as well as punctual and responsive, often going above and beyond. In addition to his normal advertising designs, he has also supported bigger projects like corporate re-branding and product launches. We have even asked him to dabble in industrial design and were delighted with the results."
- Rebecca Smith, Pickering Laboratories 
"Working with Phil was an awesome experience. When Phil had an assignment, I came to expect that he would always deliver what he was asked, but then he would take the work to another level. A deep level of thought went into every project, often exceeding client expectations. He made the agency look great!"
- Charlie Northend, The Unbound
"From the very beginning, Phil separated himself from the pack. His creativity balanced with a solid business sense provided the organization with a thought leader that served us not only during our start up phase (when we were still defining our brand) but also as we grew into an international company operating over several continents."
- Tammer Zein-El-Abedein, Surreal Brewing Company
