“Simon has successfully delivered a diverse range of projects for us at Octopus, from hand-crafted illustrated e-books and complex apps to websites and databases. He understands book publishing extremely well, is bang up to date yet refreshingly free of geek-speak, and is a highly creative, nimble problem solver.”
Denise Bates, Group Publishing Director, Octopus Publishing Group
“I commissioned Bookswarm after seeing the other fabulous author websites they had designed and I also had a personal recommendation from another Macmillan author. Bookswarm made the whole process so easy, their prices are very competitive and the ongoing support is second to none. I recommend their services unreservedly.”
Kim Slater, author of Smart (Macmillan Children’s Books)
“When it came to redesigning PHOENIX magazine’s digital platform, Simon and the Bookswarm team made the process from initial ideas and wire-framing to functional website as uncomplicated as possible. The overhauled site functions as a monthly digital magazine hybrid, and is easy for our team of journalists to use and update. We’re very happy with the final version and recently received an honourable mention for its design at the 2017 Folio: Eddie & Ozzie Awards – thank you Simon!”
