We have worked with Chris Wheeler of Hierarchy on several cafe projects over a number of years. I have found Chris and his team to be highly professional at both the creative level and also with adherence to agreed time frames, budgets and concepts. Chris' approach is very personal and intuitive and his ability to take ideas and collaboratively work with his clients to gain an outstanding result, have allowed us a creative edge and the confidence to step out and produce new concepts.
