"Suraj is a top class designer and a great human who takes pride in and enjoys his work. His ability to not only take feedback and information and turn it into a workable, useable and beautiful solution but also to be creative and innovative in doing so, is second to none. I can only highly recommend him as a person and his work! "
"Suraj is one of our top go-to freelance Industrial Designers for when ID is required on innovation projects. Suraj is a team player, proactive in his approach and creative in his design communication. He listens and asks the right questions to ensure the brief is fully understood, and delivers quality deliverables as a result. On a recent project, Suraj brought a series of conceptual ideas to life through hand sketching, 2D graphical illustrations and quick CAD models. He demonstrated an appreciation for the end user experience in his designs and successfully presented these solutions, along with supporting pros and cons, to the end client."
"Suraj is a conscientious and very capable designer who shows a real talent for identifying solutions to problems and taking them through to completion. This includes not only the conceptual design stage but also the 'ready for production' stages. He is great to work with, receptive to new ideas, has good listening skills and excellent presentation skills too. This is a highly capable young man who will go far in the design industry. Highly recommended and also a nice person."
"Since first working with Suraj during a 4-week joint research programme with Northumbria University and subsequently through Surajʼs 6-month internship with Gillette, he has consistently delivered exciting, creative and user centred solutions against a range of briefs. Suraj works independently and professionally, with a great appetite to learn and make use of new skills. He has a natural ability to calmly and effectively communicate his ideas both verbally and visually through sketch and prototype developments - whether to a large audience or 1:1. In my opinion, Suraj would be a great addition to any creative team. If you have any questions, please donʼt hesitate to contact me."
