“I have been commissioning Acute Graphics to illustrate maps and icons for me for nearly four years now. They always deliver highly accurate work often well before deadline and I know that any work I commission will be in safe hands. It’s great to know that while running a busy art desk, I can rely on Acute Graphics to deliver the goods”

Here at Paragraph we have been working with Jason for the last 12 years. We have a suite of magazines that we often need maps and posters for and he is our chosen infographics artist when commissioning these. Jason is the consummate professional, he produces maps and graphics fast and to a very high print standard. We would highly recommend using him for a reliable service from an all-round nice guy.

“Jason is that rare breed of illustrator – utterly reliable even with short lead times, and always produces top-rate illustrations no matter how bizarre or complicated the commission. Best of all, he has myriad styles that we call upon at every opportunity and he is always forthcoming with advice and ideas. Truly a pleasure to work with.”

Graeme Sapsed

“Jason consistently produces fantastic illustrations, high in quality and detail. He is an absolute pleasure to work with and I always look forward to seeing what he will produce for our briefs. He is efficient, creative and always complies to deadlines. I cannot recommend him enough.”

I was already aware of the excellent work by Acute Graphics from the likes of Wired and Men’s Health. What could have been a rather dull magazine feature became something stunning and engaging thanks to Jason’s work.

He paid attention to the brief, was speedy and accurate in work and always pleasant to deal with. It goes without saying I’ll be asking him to work on the next suitable project I have available!
