Simeon is a very talented illustrator and it was great to have him on board as part of the team who worked on the ITV Creative Black History Month 2020 campaign. His illustrations played a big part in the creative, and his dedication to making them perfect by putting in so much effort didn't go unnoticed. I can't wait to work with him again.

The whole process was pleasurable and I received a fantastic piece of art at the end of it.”
