"We asked Studio Makecreate to do the shop fitting for our new branch in Shoreditch. We were, frankly, overjoyed to have a team who were flexible, attentive to detail, professional and excellent in every respect as anyone who visits Flashback in Shoreditch will attest. They went well beyond the call of duty, often working til after midnight to make sure the job was finished within schedule, and all of this for an extremely reasonable price which was agreed beforehand and stuck to without any hidden extras. We would unconditionally recommend Studio Makecreate." - Mark Burgess, Director, Flashback Records
