"Mike Booth and Claroblue were recommended to me and I am so glad they were. Mike is as excellent designer. He has a very engaging personality, a calm disposition and is great to work with. He has a well developed ability to take a design brief and turn it into a reality which is beyond expectation. Claroblue designed and oversaw the implementation of the two fashion retail concepts for us with a basic brief and limited time. The results were impressive, on time and on budget. I would be delighted to work with Mike and the team again and have no problem recommending him to others."

"Mike and Claroblue have worked with our retail division Leia now for the last couple of years and I would not hesitate in recommending them for branding and design projects.
As a successful global lingerie manufacturer and wholesaler, we wished to revitalise our small portfolio of retail stores and create a stylish, high service concept with a clear and consistent brand identity. Claroblue were commissioned initially to redefine all aspects of the store concept design and lingerie buying experience and support its implementation across the chain and online. This has developed into an ongoing relationship as we continue to move the business forward.
At all times we have found Mike's style and approach realistic, flexible and commercial, which has been critical to our ongoing business development.
"I have worked with Mike extensively in my role as Executive Director at Alpha Airports Group Plc and more recently on a retail design project for Center Parcs in conjunction with Milligan Retail and The Nuance Group.
Projects encompassed work in the UK and internationally on designs for Airport Tax and Duty Free shops and specialist luxury goods stores, Bars and Food & Beverage outlets. In 2006, Alpha's Tax and Duty Free business was voted 'Airport Retailer of the Year' by its global suppliers and Mike was very much a part of the team that achieved this accolade.
He also initiated and completed a major rebranding project for Alpha Airports Group and Alpha Shopping, including all marketing, promotional and sales collateral for retail and F&B stores.
Mike and his team are extremely talented and creative designers who never lose sight of the commercial imperatives and have the ability to really get under the skin of a project capturing and articulating its essence. Mike is a great person to work with and has always produced fabulous work no matter how unreasonable the deadlines have been!
I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending Mike and Claroblue.
