Ethical Branding managed to define exactly what we wanted as the brief was influenced by a number of people. Proposals were presented in no time and we appreciated the clear professional guidance and enthusiasm with which Brett handled us. Our first steps were cautious, but it was easy to let go... and rely on his amazing creativity and experience. We also tested his patience to the limit.read more
