unfailingly professional and patient

(Julian’s) ability to take what too often amounts to a wheelbarrow full of text and turn it into an appealing, readable and polished piece always amazes me. He has an excellent eye for design, and because he has a keen ability to contextualize the material, can rapidly find creative solutions to problems. Julian is also unfailingly professional and patient—even when clients make eleventh hour changes or balk at new design ideas.
