Service Description

Originally planning a career in architecture as an architectural technician, a major downturn in the industry forced me to seek employment elsewhere and I have subsequently worked for the last 26 years in the graphics industry.

Initially employed as an art worker in a design agency in the days before computers, I became a partner in the agency in 1987. At this point I decided to move from graphics to finance and deal with all the bookkeeping, payroll and accounts requirements of a growing business. Activities, included cash flow forecasting and budgeting, as well as liaising with suppliers and clients for quoting purposes. My HR activities have included the production of a company staff handbook and policies, alongside dealing with recruitment and staff appraisals.

However, I always felt the need and desire to keep in touch with the creative side of the agency and so undertook a large amount of proof reading for the many print projects we produced. Working with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles as a client for over 20 years, the agency developed a working relationship based on mutual trust and an in depth knowledge of the product. This type of work required an eye for detail and accuracy, especially when checking technical information and pricing.

For several years we also ran our own photographic image library which I was involved in, not only dealing with the accounts for customers and contributors, but also key-wording images so they could be found on the website....
