Taos D.'s Software Skills
Soho Editors played a massive role in the success of Channel Five's recent postproduction build project.
Soho Editors always provide us with high-calibre, enthusiastic graphic designers - often at extremely short notice.
Ever since I signed for Soho Editors 3 years ago I’ve had nothing but positive things to say about them, from the quality of work that they get me to how the whole team are as people. The team really take care of you, and although it’s a massive agency they really have a personal touch and make you feel comfortable with every aspect of what each job entails.
You also really believe that they care about you individually, I remember telling Emma that I loved Football and the next week she’d got me on a Nike football film which I was buzzing about. I think it’s those personal touches that really make them the best.
I can’t recommend them enough. I hope I’m with them for many years to come.
We’ve been using Soho Editors for a while now, and the change-over to remote work was seamless, very helpful agency and amazing talent, I can only recommend.
We’ve been using Soho Editors for a number of years. Throughout this time, they have always provided excellent talent. Since going remote, they continue to assist us, even at very short notice. Such a friendly and accommodating team!
I became aware of Soho Editors in 2005 when I got my start in Production. They were a favourite then but now in 2020 and especially in these tough times, they have become an industry staple. They seek out to find the best Remote Editors for my briefs. It's always worth getting in touch. With an impressive rosta of veterans and new talent, I’ve never been disappointed.
