Fiona Kennedy OBE, DL Singer and Producer

With each job he has brought an eye for detail; an unparalleled creative flair; and a delightful and dedicated way of making sure work is completed to the highest quality. He is a joy to work with and I would highly recommend him to any organisation or individual. His work is to be highly recommended."

Mearns & Gill client testimonials from 2016:
"Jamieson & Carry have employed Mearns & Gill as their advertising specialists since 1983. For much of that time (till 2016), it was Steve Baxter who created and styled the brand appearance of all Jamieson & Carry promotions; for print, web and in-store display. We at Jamieson & Carry have been delighted with Steve’s personal input to constantly refresh and improve the look of our public face. Steve did not slavishly follow our requests. His visual flair added depth and character to any design. This, added to his full understanding of the brief, meant that the end-result was stylish and clear. If, however, we were unhappy with any part, he quickly made the appropriate changes without any hesitation or apparent damage to his ego! His speed of turn around of any work was admirable and helped us achieve some very short copy dates. Altogether, Steve is a professional with whom it is a pleasure to work.” 
Peter Carry, Partner, Jamieson & Carry, Aberdeen
"I have worked with Mearns & Gill since 2000 on a number of projects where Total E&P UK has required a high level of creative input, design and professional flair. In particular I have worked with Steve Baxter who has always been instrumental in providing first class, high quality and ‘just that little bit different’ designs that catch your eye and your imagination”
