I am a menswear designer, and have worked collaboratively with Andreas for the past 8 years. Andreas has contributed enormously to my label, designing the labels and extensive screen prints that have been used throughout the collections. Not only is Andreas is a pleasure to work with, but he very skilled and practical and often offers excellent solutions to various creative problems that we might come across throughout the design process. Many of the designs that Andreas has designed for me are on going styles that I use again and again because they sell so well. I highly recommend Andreas Varnavides.
Martine Rose, Designer, Martine Rose Menswear
I worked with Andreas on the artwork for my Record release ‘Demos In Disguise’ in 2012/13 as well as on T-shirt designs and my artist’s logo which was featured during concerts in Thailand, across the UK as well as on stage at The Roundhouse, London. Andreas was the first graphic designer who I collaborated with that really took the time to understand the message of what I was trying to convey and who took the music into account. We would meet up and I would be asked questions that would then inspire the designs. I was able to be involved at every stage of the process which really made me feel connected to the artwork and extremely happy and proud of what was created. I would be more than happy to recommended Andreas for any individual or company looking for a professional and personalised design service and hope to able to work with Andreas again on more projects in the future.

I've worked with Andreas for nearly 10 years and I've always found him a pleasure to deal with, excellent at executing and providing ideas if you need them or at bringing life to your own. He has always delivered to brief in a timely and efficient manor and is always accommodating to the customers thoughts on briefs. I can't recommend his services highly enough.
Maurice Dennemont, Managing Director of Soul 2 Streets
We have used Andreas on several occasions to design leaflets posters and flyers in connection with our lectures, events and young people's programmes over the past four or five years. Andreas thinks deeply about his customers' purposes and produces art work which is stunning and imaginative. We wouldn’t use anyone else now. I recommend him to you highly.
