Recommendations Sarah Amit Design Professional Highly professional, a real motivator, And one of the calmest art directors I have come across. Nothing fazed him, No mater what was thrown at him. He gave 100% . He is very talented designer, in control at all times, good organiser and has fantastic people skills. A true pleasure to work for and with!

Dax Fullbrook Senior Art Director at DDB Canada During my time at Brown Reference Group, and under the guidance of Reg, I have found that I learnt a great deal from him. Many things that I have taken on with me in my career. Reg was a fantastic leader. Everyone that worked under Reg respected him as a boss and as a friend. He was always highly creative and willing to push things that extra mile to achieve the best for the client, the company and himself. I would have no issue in recommending Reg as I know he is always at his best in everything he does.

Anne O’Daly Children’s Publisher at Brown Bear Books Ltd I worked with Reg at the Brown Reference Group when Reg was art director there. Reg was a pleasure to work with - a creative and thoughtful designer, and a friendly and positive personality.

Jeni Child Design Consultant

Matthew Greenfield Director at Charlbury Yoga Studio Reg was my boss at the Brown Reference Group. He was always very diligent and had time for all the designers and IT people that worked under him. He has lots of energy and is very creative but also good at seeing a project through from beginning to end. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Reg to anyone who is thinking of working with him.

Steve Wilson Creative Director at Wilson Design Associates I interviewed Reg for my job... and gave it to him... what more of an endorsement can one give! I was acting Art Director for Brown Partworks at the time while still running my own design business. Browns were my largest client and asked me to be creative caretaker for a period and look for a suitable Art Director for the company. I saw several candidates and Reg was the clear leader. Creative, organised, affable and hands-on; great qualities for an Art Director. It was a pleasure working with him at that period.

Sharon Hutton Managing Director at Frilly Fish Books Reg Cox is a talented and diligent design professional. He approaches every task with a creative intelligence, he always delivers the job required and will go the extra mile to make the process smooth. He was a pleasure to work with.

I have worked with Reg for many years, initially when we were both freelancers, then he hired me when he became Art Director at Brown Reference Group, he was great to work for, very creative and a good manager.
