Brands I've worked with


Mark O'Donohhue

Chief Operating Officer, AVADO

Russ worked at AVADO for a couple of years, mostly on on our Google partnership Squared Online – as a graphic designer he’s a rare combination of vision and attention to detail – and his output invariably produces the response – “that just works…”.

He spent late hours beyond the call of duty on a couple of big deadline driven pieces – remaining good humoured and positive throughout. I highly recommend Mr Hepton.

Ralph La Fontaine

Head of Learning Operations, CIPD

Russell worked for us on a major competitive tender application for a five year contract with a key strategic partner which we won. The tender team was small and Russell had a pivotal role not just in designing the look and feel of the tender documents but also in helping us shape the proposal narrative.

The layout and design of the tender documents was critical in communicating the benefits of the proposal and achieving a successful outcome. Above all Russ is a pleasure to work with – he’s hard working, a great communicator, flexible and is always willing to go the extra mile to get a great result. Highly recommended and I hope we’ll be able to work together again in future.

Juliette Alliban

Senior Designer, LBi

I worked with Russell during his time at LBi and it was a pleasure to meet such a positive, honest, passionate and talented person. Russell was such an enthusiastic designer, extremely keen throughout the projects he worked on. I was very impressed with his portfolio work – not to be missed!

He not only gets stuck in with design work, but is also a hugely imaginative thinker – and confident in his approach. I wish him all the best in his exciting creative career. He is a breath of fresh air and a great pleasure to work with.

D&AD Nomination 2012

In 2012, myself and another designer created a new concept for the Microsoft Windows 8 platform called Windows Butterfly, which received a nomination in the D&AD Student Awards. Standing out from thousands of other entries worldwide – Windows Butterfly gave me the chance to be thrown into the industry at the deep end through the D&AD New Blood Academy, attending seminars, group work, and various internships at some of the world’s leading design and branding agencies.
