I was at an event the other day, speaking to a guy that I do some work with.
And he asked me the age-old question:
“So how did you get started in print?”
I didn’t really know where to start.
You see, it wasn’t like I “found” print.
It was more like I grew up with the ink running through my veins.
Both my grandfather and my father were in print; I can still remember being pulled around the shopfloor, aged 4, on a paper trolley by my father. (I doubt H&S regs would allow that nowadays!)
And when I grew up and it became obvious that i wasn’t going to hit the heady heights of rock stardom (despite the AC/DC audition), print was all I wanted to do.
I loved working with businesses, especially when I’d played a key role in a successful campaign – it was the kind of thing that gave me a real buzz.
Anyway, going back to the ‘family’ side of things – I’ve managed to dig out some cine footage of my grandfather and my father back in the ‘60s – thankfully technology’s moved on a bit since then.
And remember, if you ever want an impartial chat about your print, just give us a shout; we’ve got history!
