“Fran is an excellent cartoonist and has been great to work with on GP over the years. He has managed to find an amusing take on the many issues facing the NHS week in, week out. What’s more, he’s able to turn things around for us quickly and is completely reliable.”
Emma Bower Editor GP magazine

“I briefed Fran to create a number of cartoons for a series of ads we were producing for a major beer brand client of ours – I was delighted with the result, the punctuality and the cost. Fran is a true professional and it’s a pleasure to have worked with him.”
Andy Sellars

“Fran worked with us on a Leadership programme. He produced cartoons which were used to stimulate learning and insights about current and desired leadership behaviours in the Client organisation.The sessions worked very well and provided excellent support for the learning process. I would wholeheartedlyrecommend Fran.”
Andy Radka Director Creative Partners

“Fran Orford`s cartoons always go straight to the heart of the matter in an hilarious way”

“It has been nothing but a pleasure working with Fran over many years. Besides being extremely talented, he is very conscientious and is a thoroughly decent human being. Long may it continue.”
Damian Lawrence, group production editor, The Lawyer group.

“Fran is a delight to work with in bringing together cartoon images for use in business presentations. He is friendly and responsive, turning around requirements at a moments notice. I would not hesitate to recommend Fran.”
Tony Farnfield, Practice Leader, Trinity Horne.

“Fran is a pleasure to deal with and comes up with great results time and time again. I would highly recommend him.”

“I have used Fran for a few bespoke cartoons for my powerpoint presentations. I simply email Fran my ideas/request, he does his cartoony stuff and I end up with brilliant and unique material. To date the only payment I have made is to a couple of charities of Fran’s choice. So – not only do my presentations improve, I am also helping some deserving cause. I can not praise Fran’s work too highly. I would recommend Fran to anyone- a pleasure to work with. May 28, 2012”
Sean Brennan Director Clinical Matrix

“Fran cartoons have been a regular feature in Napo’s newsletter, Napo News, which goes out to our 9,000 plus members 10 times a year, since the late 90s. Fran is also our first port of call when we want to spice up guides, reports and posters on such dry subjects as health and safety and how to operate our AGM procedures. (Just have a look at our ‘What is a Point of Order’ booklet produced last year and you will see what I mean).

What’s great about working with Fran is that he is not only a great cartoonist but he can find a sharp and funny angle to almost any topic we throw at him and turn even the most forbidding material – IT systems in chaos, cuts to Probation budgets, reorganizations in the MoJ, prison numbers soaring – into a really funny cartoon with the minimum of background information. This is certainly what we need in Napo as, as you can imagine, there are not too many obvious laughs in the area of Probation but often a bit of humour is the best way to get a serious point across.”

Your Caricatures have transformed the morale at this plant
Alan Mclennon | MD Saint Gobain Glass

“From all the colleagues at HI Group and myself… please accept our heartfelt thank you’s for the fantastic caricature of Tony Hill.

I thought it looked good through the bubble wrap when collecting it, but when the wrap came off the full detail just bowled us over.

Feel free to use this in your marketing and I think a few more commissions will come your way when any of us have the need. Tony did not stop talking about it all the way home and we are happy that it was the best thing we could have presented him with on such an important occasion.”
Kevin Street (General Sales Manager Frigidaire)

“Had the pleasure of commissioning Mike earlier this year to produce caricatures for one of my clients. Given very tight deadlines, Mike produced outstanding work with such creativity and likeness. I wouldn’t hesitate using Mike again should the opportunity arise.”
Emma Heylings Senior Account Manager at Clarity Creation

“Mike is a fantastice resource to be able to call on. I have employed Mikes services twice for commemorative illustrations; both times he has delivered superbly despite being supplied with the most basic information to go on. (sorry Mike, thats my fault!) His illustrations are still hanging on the office walls of the recipients, being given pride of place, which says it all.”
Michael Holmes Senior Account Manager at The Dow Chemical Company

“I’ve known Mike for about 25 years, and in that time he has always provided me with illustrations that perfectly fit the brief. Not only that but Mike will take the brief further with his wit and unusual point of view. In fact you hope Mike will come in to take over because he has better ideas than me!”
