STEF KATWIJK (Oplossing zoekt probleem)
‘Op een enorm goede manier samengewerkt met Erik de afgelopen twee maanden. Erik begrijpt hoe een conceptuele gedachte te verbeelden naar een alleszeggende identiteit.’ (2 november 2012, inz. logo voor Den Haag cultuur in bedrijf)

TOM VINCKEN (Law Student)
‘Erik Cox heeft voor mij zowel het “Eye for Tax” logo ontworpen als de “Eye for Tax” website en de styling er omheen. Ik heb Erik ervaren als een uiterst professioneel en creatief grafisch ontwerper, die mij in bijzonder korte tijd heeft geholpen e.e.a. te ontwerpen en op te zetten. Hij gaat grondig te werk, is heel creatief en origineel, denkt goed mee, geeft goede adviezen en handelt met snelheid. Ik heb met veel plezier met Erik aan dit project gewerkt. Ik kan hem aan iedereen van harte aanbevelen! Erik, nogmaals veel dank!’ (17 oktober 2012)

GERARD BIK (Senior designer @ Gerard Bik grafische vormgeving)
‘Erik Cox heb ik leren kennen als een natuurtalent in grafisch ontwerpen. Vooral sterk in de artistieke kant van het vak, met een goede neus voor trends. Stijlkeuzes die hij jaren geleden maakte heb ik later in algemeen toegepaste trends zien terugkomen.’ (1 juli 2012)

HORAS SIMANULLANG (Co. Owner @ Van Prinse & Co)
‘Erik ontwerpt prachtige logo's, gewerkt met hem tijdens zijn studie bij Schlemmer, 1995 heeft het mooie logo van HnM Cafe ontworpen, de Cafe tafels bestempeld met het Wilhelmus, zeer origineel.., nu (2011-2012) ons logo voor Van Prinse & Co en bartafels bedacht, ook bijzonder ontwerp... Meedenkende ontwerper en betrouwbaar... aanrader!’ (17 juli 2012)

ANTOINETTE VAN HATTEM (De Artiesteningang, bemiddeling in muziek en theateracts)
‘Villa Augustus heeft haar programmaladders door Erik vorm laten geven. Enorm plezier om met hem samen te werken: hij werkt snel en accuraat, denkt op een prettige manier mee, geeft goede suggesties en heeft creatieve oplossingen!’ (9 september 2012)

JOEP TOEBOSCH (vm. Senior Consultant in Trauma Counseling)
‘We wilden graag een niet-modale, wel fraai vormgegeven boekenkast in module vorm. Door de inventiviteit van Erik Cox kregen we niet alleen een fraaie zwevende, multi-colour module kast, maar werden we ook betrokken bij een ontwerpproces waarbij van dag 1 Erik in maquette-vorm en tekening met ideeën kwam. Hij luisterde naar ons commentaar en nam dat ook serieus. Met Erik samenwerken/denken was een spannend en belonend avontuur.’ (25 september 2012, inz. Modulekast #2)


JACQUES G. VINCKEN (Credit & Risk Manager at Royal Dutch Shell and Secretary of the Foundation of the Royal Cavalry Escort of Honour)

'I can really highly recommend Erik Cox as Graphic Designer, Artist/Craftsman and Stylist. I have worked with Erik for quite some years now on big international projects for Royal Dutch Shell (Shell). Erik started the project work for Shell with the full restyling of the Shell “Hunt for Cash” project, e.g. logo, posters, media communication, and the way the project was presented, in Shell, as well as in external conferences around the Globe. The “Hunt for Cash Trophy” by Erik was a real work of art. He has very successfully coordinated our Christmas gifts the last three years, either presented as books or outcome in books, done as virtual Team building exercises. Erik was the creative initiator and project coordinator in these projects. He is seen by us as our “Creative Director for Europe & Africa”.

Erik is a creative genius with an eye for detail, perfection and style, who always delivers on promises made and with sharp budgetting. He is a guarantee for success and his projects have always had a high “Wowww impact”. The recent ultimate highlights were the “Hunt for Cash Trophy” and the virtual Team building book “My favourite place in my city - Project 435>22>1”.

Next to Royal Dutch Shell, Erik has recently also done beautiful and stylish graphic design work for the Dutch Royal Family’s Royal Cavalry Escort of Honour.

Erik is at his best when fully empowered. He takes you with him on his creative journey in the early stages of brainstorming and once the idea has landed, gives his best in working it out to the last detail. He works fast and accurate with strong planning.

Erik Cox’ website and LinkedIn site are good references to see and read more of his work.

So again, I highly recommend Erik Cox as Graphic Designer, Artist/Craftsman and Stylist !’ (May 2015)

STEF KATWIJK (Solution seeks problem)
‘Collaborated with Erik in an enormously good way the past two months. Erik understands how to translate a concept into a house style that says it all via the graphics and design.’ (November 2, 2012, at Hague logo for Culture in Business)

TOM VINCKEN (Law Student)
‘Erik Cox designed both the “Eye for Tax” logo and the “Eye for Tax” web site with its accompanying house style for me. I experienced Erik as a highly professional and creative graphic designer, who helped me get the design done and the site set up amazingly quickly. Erik is thorough, creative and original, offers useful ideas and excellent advice along the whole trajectory, working efficiently all the while. Tackling this project with Erik has been a lot of fun. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone! Erik, once again many thanks!’ (October 17, 2012)

GERARD BIK (Senior designer @ Gerard Bik grafische vormgeving)
‘I've come to know Erik Cox as a natural talent at graphic design. He's especially good in the artistic side of his craft, with a good nose for trends. I've seen many of the stylistic choices he made years ago return later as general trends in applied design.’ (July 1, 2012)

HORAS SIMANLULLANG (Co-owner @ Van Prinse & Co)
‘Erik designs beautiful logos. I worked with him at Cafe Schlemmer during his art academy days. He designed the lovely logo for Cafe HnM in 1995, stamping the tables with the Wilhelmus [the Dutch national anthem], very original. Now, 2011 - 2012, he's designed our logo for lunchroom Van Prinse & Co and our bar tables -- also a unique design.... Receptive to incorporating ideas from his client, trustworthy, I highly recommend him!’ (July 17, 2012)

ANTOINETTE VAN HATTEM (The Artists' Entrance, agent for music and theater acts)
‘Villa Augustus commissioned Erik to design its summer and autumn season schedule. It was an enormous pleasure to work with him; he works quickly and accurately, is wonderful to brainstorm with, offers good advice and creative solutions.!’ (September 9, 2012)

JOEP TOEBOSCH (former Senior Consultant in Trauma Counseling)
‘We wanted an unusual and beautifully designed bookcase in module form. Using Erik Cox's ingenuity, we not only got a beautiful floating, multi-color modular bookcase, but we were also involved in the design process. Erik used models and drawings from Day One to discuss his ideas with us. He listened to our comments and took them seriously. Working and thinking together with Erik was an exciting and rewarding adventure.’ (September 25, 2012, Modular Bookcase #2)
