“We completed our project on separate continents. Faiz never even held the bottles he was designing a box for, but looking back, the geographical separation made no difference. We quickly developed a great rapport and method of communication that made me feel secure in the project. He was always responsive and made planning around our different timezones painless.”
— Sarah Patterson, Founder of Salinity Studio, San Francisco.
“Faiz's level of involvement and genuine interest in our business is what makes him such a pleasure to work with. I have peace of mind working with Faiz – he's taken so much time to learn about our gallery that I know whatever he creates for us will hit the nail right on the head!”
— Ryan Massey, Founder of Massey Klein Gallery, New York City.
“The key challenges we faced involved combining large inputs (from Quantitative Data) and unique voices (from Qualitative Interviews) into a coherent, streamlined product. Faiz did this with grace, while constantly striving to innovate the form to grant it elegance and increased accessibility for a general readership.”
— Andrew Porter, Director of Research managing transnational projects for UBS, Credit Suisse Group & Standard Chartered Private Bank.
