Creative Designer: Oli Longmore

“We have used Oli on a number of occasions for the designing of packshots, poster and online assets. He is fast, effective and always takes on board feedback, making him a pleasure to work with.” Ben Coates, Label Manager, Relentless Records
 - Sony Music Entertainment

"Oli worked at MN2S as a graphic designer for four and a half years and during this time produced excellent work for our music and booking agency departments, this included various record sleeves, product design, marketing and advertising materials. His work is of a very high standard and I would have no reservations in recommending him for similar roles. He has a very good eye and is able to produce work in a number of styles with ease and often made valued suggestions which were taken on board by management and senior staff. Oli was very much liked by the rest of the team and has remained good friends with several employees." - David Elkabas, Director, MN2S

“Oli Longmore initially earned his stripes doing work experience for us at Sunday Best and Bestival but we quickly spotted his natural flair for graphic design and photography and have since employed him and these skills on a freelance basis to great effect. Particularly impressive is his ability to nail the brief we give him at the first attempt, even more so as we’re pretty fussy over here!" - Duncan Turner - Online, Digital Music, Artwork & Design Manager - Sunday Best / Bestival

"Oli Longmore worked at Don't Panic from August 07 to January 09. We initially took him on as an unpaid intern but he soon became an integral part of the company - the magazine in particular - and we offered him a paid role. Oli showed a maturity and a work ethic beyond his years at Don't Panic. But perhaps more important than that for us was his natural ability as a photographer. Oli gave Don't Panic an original aesthetic of it's own with the pictures he took of bands and other magazine interviewees. His design skills were also invaluable as was his willingness stay as late as was necessary to get the job done. I think I speak for the whole Don't Panic team in saying that we'd welcome Oli back." - Heydon Prowse, Director and Magazine editor.
