Reference letter

"During Adam’s time at Racing Post I was repeatedly surprised by his ability to create beautiful, usable things so quickly. I was able to issue a broad brief and watch him distill that into a finished product design through a combination of research and his own intuition. He's enthusiastic, hardworking, and has a natural talent for design. He made my job easier and is welcome back any time."

– Rob Winter, Head of Design, Racing Post
