Director | Experienced in the implementation of retail and design projects; identifying issues before they arise
September 22, 2020, Stuart managed Steve directlySteve joined us initially to bolster the team during a busy period, but soon after working together it was evident that his knowledge and experience was a great asset to our business.
Steve helped deliver two large scale flagship retail projects for us, where his attention to detail was key and his ability to navigate that tricky role between 'Client' and 'Contractor' was crucial. He displayed the ability to keep a level head during the height of any project, 'when in the trenches', where the flow of information is critical to it's success - all whilst maintaining a good sense of humour!
Steve's focus was always on the end result for the project, and was never afraid to stand-up for the cause to ensure the best possible result for both Client and Contractor.
It was a pleasure working with Steve over an 18 month period and would 100% recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced designer to add to their team.

September 9, 2020, Stephen worked with Steve but at different companiesI worked with Steve on a large Oxford street flagship store, his attention to detail as we navigated the tricky business of transforming concept designs into buildable works without compromising the vision was fantastic.
We had a great team, of which he was a major contributor to the success of a very challenging project

June 16, 2020, Sam worked with Steve but at different companiesWorking with Steve is a great pleasure. He understands his own role extremely well and knows how his design impacts the rest of a project team including the contractor.
He strives for the best possible look and feel whilst weighing up technical and practical considerations. The effort he puts into his work is above and beyond and you couldn’t hope for a better person on your job.
Director Retail Design - adidas
November 5, 2019, Victoria worked with Steve but at different companiesI worked with Steve on the adidas_LDN Flagship Store at Oxford Street, London. He lead the development of the construction drawings for the store fitout based on the design created by the adidas Design Team in collaboration with Brinkworth Design Studio.
I am incredibly impressed by Steve's attention to detail, passion and determination to transfer the design ambition into an best-in-class buildable execution. We couldn't have asked for a better sparring partner on this complex, challenging and time-critical project.
Director at Brinkworth
August 30, 2019, Sonny worked with Steve but at different companiesI have known Steve for many years, we met and became friends at university, but until recently had not had the opportunity to work together. We have for the past six months or so, been working for separate design agencies on a major flagship sports apparel project in the UK.
At first I was concerned mixing business with pleasure, but have been surprised with the ease at which we have worked together to deliver a vast and ever evolving project.
Steve’s approach to the project has been admirable, and his attention to detail second to none. He has a great understanding of what we are trying to achieve, with the appropriate manner, care, and technical nuance to deliver outstanding work.
I hope that we have the opportunity to work together in the future.
Since I’ve worked with Steve Wright, I have found him to be conscientious with a great eye for detail. A team player who is willing to step outside the box in the interest of the end result. Steve capabilities are such he is able to work bothe client and contractor side. I would strongly recommend Steve for any future projects and look forward to long and prosperous working relationship with him.

October 7, 2018, Eric was a client of Steve’sI have worked with Steve quite recently on some challenging guest areas on cruise ships, and Steve was entirely indispensabal. His very quick and responsive mastery of Vectorworks (our CADD software of choice) in a matter of days was remarkable and he produced some great drawings.
He's also a great designer, clear thinking and practical with a wide ranging creative skill set honed on a wide variety of projects over many years. Not only can he respond to a brief comprehensively, he's also very analytical and practical and will look to solve problems as he finds them.
Steve is a great independant design consultant, and I would not hesitate to collaborate with him on any future projects.
