I have no hesitation recommending Mangostone. Laurens and Tony are not only very easy and friendly to work with, but are also highly professional and creative. They make the process fun and painless, solving problems without grumbling. They always hit deadline and deliver work of a very high standard - often within ridiculously tight timeframes. They are my go-to guys!

Products were ace, everyone was really happy and no issues at all. They were spot on to our brief and worked great on shoot. Costs and timings were very accommodating and was great to see the updates throughout production. Look forward to working again in the future!

Mangostone produced a number of excellent exhibits and interactives for our new museum to celebrate the life of Brunel in Bristol. These included some sculptured busts, interactive
family drawers and a replica Victorian light fitting. We were delighted with their quality, robustness and the attention to detail. They were delivered on time and to budget and the customer care of the team was second to none. We would have no hesitation in working with them on future projects.

We’ve worked with Laurens over a number of years on several projects and
found his work to be of a very high standard with excellent levels of
communication. The team is highly skilled, enthusiastic and adaptable and
provides useful creative and practical input throughout the design and build
process to ensure that the final product performs in the way it was
envisioned. The products are therefore also good value for money. We would
not hesitate to recommend Mangostone.

I worked with Mangostone to produce a stop frame commercial last year.
They are friendly, passionate and very collaborative, responding well to directors feedback regardless of our challenging budget. They worked incredibly hard to make everything happen on time to the highest possible standard.
— Sami Goddard, Producer, Aardman Animations
There’s a reason why the biggest, brightest and best film, TV and animation directors and production managers entrust their most challenging, complex and creative projects to Laurens. Not just a safe pair of hands, he is the most talented ‘maker’ in the business. This, combined with his truly unique and winning personality, great sense of humour, can-do attitude (I don’t think he has the word ‘no’ in his vocabulary) and serious work ethic, make him such an inspiring and exceptional talent to be working with.

I have just been out to see the letters and I’m over the moon with the finish. They look great!!! Thank you so much to you and the team for putting the work in to get these done in such a short turnaround. Our client is on his way over to see them and I know he will be thrilled. Now I know who you are I will be in touch with other bits we may require. Thanks again.
— Verity Thompson, Project & Account manager at fernleigh design
Working with Laurens has always been a pleasure and I would not hesitate to recommend doing business with him. He tackles every challenge with a deep knowledge and enthusiasm and brings to his work a level of care and execution which is becoming rare in this world of corner cutting and compromise.  Laurens is easy to get on with, sensitive to the management of others, good at getting the best out of a team and quick to help when the need arises. In a short a true gentleman. And a talented one at that.
