Bryan Adams

“Back whilst finalising my photographs for the charity book Made In Canada I worked with Rick at Shark Attack to do some imaging on the final art. He brought an abundance of expert skill and IT technical know-how to the project. Rick was instrumental in getting the job done to the standard I was looking for.”

“I’ve known and worked with Rick for well over a decade both on traditional book design projects and online ventures. He’s a joy to work with, always quick to grasp the context and aims of any new project, and is, above all, a veritable fount of new ideas. True out-of-the-box thinkers are rare, but Rick is one of them. Oh — and he always delivers on time and to budget. Highly recommended for all design projects.”

Bruce Harfield

“Our Dynamite VSP and Dynamite SIM products were sold to Autodesk a few years back. Autodesk ultimately re-branded them to Civil View, then put the resulting tools into 3ds Max Design. I’m certain that the work Shark Attack did for us in helping to re-brand the products played an important role in raising the profile of the products, and that ultimately lead to their acquisition.”

Neil Courtis

“Rick has proved adept at interpreting what I — as a non-designer — am trying to achieve and then come up with designs that make sense from a business perspective as well as looking elegant. Very easy to deal with and does that wonderful thing of telling you when he can't help as well as when he can.”

Sensible Media Ltd.

Steven Marsland

“I run a Language School in Italy offering courses for businesses, children and adults. An increasing number of our students come to us via our website and since Rick redesigned the website those numbers have increased further. I think Shark Attack’s greatest talent is their attention to what the client really needs and not just to what they think will look good. Rick gave us excellent advice and service at reasonable rates. Great job, thanks!”

Steven Marsland ~ School Director
The British Language Centre

John Brownlow

“Wonderful design work! We wanted a new identity for Deep Fried Films, something to help our invoices and pitch documents stand out from the sea of letters that sit on every Studio Executive's desk. Shark Attack came up with the perfect response – eye-catching, practical, and with a quirky sense of humour. At every stage the studio was always ready to go the extra mile in order to give us exactly what we were looking for, and usually understood what we wanted long before we did. We’ve been getting compliments about the design of our new identity since we first rolled it out and we have Shark Attack to thank for that. I really can’t recommend them enough.”

John Brownlow ~ Company Director
Deep Fried Films, Inc. (Toronto)

“Shark Attack has been providing us with creative, perfectly-targeted cover illustrations for our publications for years now, and have never failed to come up with the goods no matter how tight the deadline. Such is our confidence in the studio, and in Rick Lecoat’s capabilities in particular, that, during a staffing crisis, we had absolutely no qualms about asking him to step into the breach as our Interim Art Editor — a choice that we never regretted for a moment. In addition, Shark Attack’s quality of service has always been professional, helpful and friendly in equal measure, making them a pleasure to work with. I have no doubt that we shall continue to employ their services on a regular basis.”

Conorde Clarke ~ Art Editor, General & Condensed Books Depts.
Readers Digest Association Limited

Rakhee Jasani

Rakhee Jasani portrait

“Shark Attack is great - quick, efficient and excellent value for money. We had quite a demanding brief and a tricky target market but the design of the material for our young people’s writing competition and also the posters of the work produced by the winners of the competition fulfilled our brief perfectly. The design complemented the aims of the competition and we have no hesitation in recommending Shark Attack.”

Rakhee Jasani ~ Arts Development Director
Eastside Educational Trust

Nish Malwenna

Nish Malwenna portrait

“When I needed the logo and stationery designed for our company’s rebranding, I was looking for a designer who could produce an effective design efficiently. During the work Rick was not only efficient and effective, but he was also a great communicator who was patient enough to make several rounds of changes to the logo in order to deliver precisely what we needed. Honestly, I was fortunate to come across Shark Attack; the studio has done great work for our company which has been appreciated both by myself and my clients alike.”

Nish Malwenna ~ Owner/Director

“We wholeheartedly recommend Shark Attack. Our first exper­ience of working with Rick Lecoat was a very positive one — there was a constant flow of roughs and revisions between ourselves in London and our recording artist based in Los Angeles, and it took a little time to get it right, but Rick was determined to get the result that would make us and our artist happy. Which we were. Very happy.”
