Freelancing for agencies

The bulk of the work that we do is as freelancers for bigger agencies, rather than directly for end clients. And such agencies naturally like to keep their prized resources to themselves, rather than issue blanket references. Nevertheless, we will of course be pleased to give details of jobs, end clients, fields and samples of our work where necessary.
