"Alan possesses the two most important talents I look for when I work with a creative.
An amazing passion and understanding of design and aesthetic and the ability to make me laugh,
and believe me, when you are up against it, both are equally important.
I have seen Al grow from an undervalued but enthusiastic designer on Redline, to a confident talented Deputy on Official PlayStation Magazine to an outstanding Art Editor on Computer Arts Projects.
Working with Al is always a pleasure, and something I hope to do again in the future."
Dylan Channon, Design Director, FuturePlus UK

"Alan Wardle is one of the most diligent, hard working and reliable designers I have worked with; on deadline and under pressure these attributes mean a great deal. Alan's creative flair is broad-ranging, he is certainly very versatile and can pretty much turn his hand to any design style."
Simon Wear, CEO SHIFT Active Media Ltd.

"As an art editor, Al always has a crystal-clear creative vision, not to mention an infectious passion for his craft. He sets exceptionally high standards for himself, and is determined to commission artwork with a conceptual thought-process behind it, never just eye-candy - as demonstrated by a stunning run of Computer Arts Projects covers.
He’s also built and maintained an impressive contacts book of renowned designers and illustrators from all around the world, and through AnyForty has turned creative collaboration into an art form. I have no hesitation in recommending him for design work of any kind."
Nick Carson, Editor, Computer Arts Projects.

“Al approached me to design a graphic for the AnyForty 'Versus 2' artist series. I can honestly say that Al is one of the most driven art directors I've ever worked with, and makes the process easy by starting with a strong concept from which to approach a project, and keeping his eye on the project at all times with clear direction throughout to ensure that it stays true to the original idea. Any changes requested are without ego and benefit the project. I also worked several times with Al when he was Art Editor at Computer Arts Projects and can happily say that the experience was similar each time we worked together. He's a top fella, and a top art director. I'd recommend Al's work without hesitation and look forward to the next time we work together.”
Steven Bonner, Illustrator.

“Alan Wardle provided me with not only great assignments, but also clear and well thought out creative briefs to help me do my job. I worked with Alan on 5 different projects which he brought to me with direct, concise, well communicated needs. Working with Alan in England, while I'm based in San Francisco also proved to be smooth with his timely responses and attention to the project at hand. I know Alan would prove to be as much of an asset to those who hire him as he is to those he hires.
