    Testimonials

    My thanks to all the people I have worked with over the years. I am grateful for the many lasting friendships that have evolved.

    I had the pleasure of working with Pascal for several years. We collaborated efforts on different kinds of media; film, print, software and web. During these years, I encountered a highly proficient person, who aims for excellency as an individual, as part of a group, and for the project he is involved with. Having worked with him on complex projects, that included a lot of input between different collaborative groups, Pascal was always our beacon. He helped us focus and emphasise priorities to maximize creative freedom, while staying within goals/budget. Pascal posses great time-management and multitasking skills, always leading ahead complicated tasks with great efficiency. Last but not least he has the gift of being a "solution solver", always thinking outside the box to find the simplest and most elegant solutions for dificult problems. - Paula Ben-Ari, Founder - Lead Art Director, Create Hive

    Founder & Art Director

    MindActiva has been extremely fortunate to have had Pascal Bonjour as a member of our team for the past 3 years. His work with us extended into so many areas that it is difficult for me to find any aspect of our business that has not benefited from Pascal’s contributions. Pascal has the unique ability to find ways to bring order and organization to complex projects. I saw this first-hand when we formed a team of creative and academic freelancers from around the world to develop a new product. This is the kind of team that could accurately be associated with the analogy of herding cats. Pascal quickly setup up the systems and procedures for everyone to communicate with each other through different time-zones, share in the development work, and contribute their individual fields of expertise with each other. Of more importance was the way Pascal earned everyone’s respect through his own significant innovative and creative contributions to the project. Everyone who has worked with Pascal will recognize his ability to lead by example. The standards he has set himself serve to motivate the people he works with – both inside and outside the company. I have been the regular recipient of positive feedback about Pascal from co-workers, freelancers and suppliers. I know that Pascal will be a significant asset to any company he works with. - Tony Williams, MindActiva Founder
