Testimonials

See what our clients are saying about our creative directories.

"We have recently started working with the team at Capsules and are thrilled with the results. The standard of their creative network is quite simply outstanding. Capsules is now a preferred source for connecting with creatives for Bookmark (a global WPP agency). Highly recommend."

- Natasha Jackson, Chief Strategy Officer - Bookmark

“As of November 2017, I finally have an occupation in something I really like to do - graphic design and illustration. I worked in a factory before. Thanks to Capsules' Bézier Volume.1 creative directory, I received a request from an advertising agency to work for them.”

- Szabolcs Vajas. Featured in Bézier Volume.1 & Drawn Volume.2

We are pleased to announce our partnership with Book Aid International. Moving forward, 100% of proceeds from book sales of our Capsules creative directories will be donated to Book Aid International. 

Book Aid International is the UK’s leading international book donation and library development charity. Every year, the charity aims to ship one million new books to thousands of libraries in communities where people have very few opportunities to access books.
Book Aid International works with an extensive network of libraries, schools, hospitals, NGOs and other partners to ensure that the books it sends reach those who are most in need. In addition, Book Aid International also runs library development projects which build the capacity of libraries to support readers and communities.
