What people say about Tim

“Tim is undoubtedly one of the best colourists in the business. He has played a key part in setting the distinctive look of the Apprentice. With a big returning series, it’s important to keep evolving and Tim has been proactive in always looking to keep things fresh visually. He’s a pleasure to work with, despite having a devotion to Morrissey and Middlesbrough FC that some might view as excessive!”

Mark Saben – Series Producer for The Apprentice
