Max consults for public and private bodies across the world, delivering content and strategy on a regular or one-off basis. Whatever the project, he brings an external perspective to a client's needs and introduces ideas and solutions to reinforce their mission and broaden their objectives.

Advisor: Often it helps for organisations to invite a fresh eye to assess what they do, question how their output is perceived and consider if it could be streamlined and improved. Max works with clients to sense-check their activity, scrutinise quality, and filter and approach other valuable contributors.

Content creator: organisations are increasingly judged on the quality of their content. Max works with designers, companies and institutions to programme and commission exhibitions, installations, events and talks across the world.

Editorial: designers, manufacturers, companies and institutions often ask Max to create credible content for use across print or digital platforms. He works with the client to pinpoint their most interesting stories and is given autonomy to create authoritative and relevant content.

Judging: the design industry regularly celebrates excellence with award programmes staged globally. Max is frequently invited to join judging panels across the world, sharing his knowledge and opinions with fellow experts so as to identify the industry's leading innovators, risk takers and pioneers.
