What our clients say
Client Technology Officer, Worldwide. eg+ worldwide
“Our catalogue production has been radically streamlined and provided benefits – from both a commercial and a production standpoint – that have exceeded everyone’s expectations.”
Head of Production and Creative Services, Findel
“The fact that LGS not only provided the right technology but also a huge amount of technical know-how, a high level of service and training support, was important to us to ensure the transition went through successfully.”
Production Director, Immediate Media
“Some service providers don’t understand the importance of colour consistency to the creative industry. We didn’t want a box shifter to come in and save us money on the meter click, our value of perception is different. We need a consistent colour workspace. LGS understands how to provide colour consistency. When it comes to ensuring overall efficiency of studio processes, creatives’ time and cost, calling in the LGS technicians is a good decision.”
