Francois Smit and I have collaborated on a number of projects that called for his design skills. I found him to be an enthusiastic participant rather than simply a supplier of design. He has a strong ability to grasp concepts and put them into clear and effective design. He is enjoyable to work with, non-territorial and delivers on his promises on time. All of which, in my opinion, makes him a most commendable designer.
