Collaboration With Passion
Just some of the clients I worked with in St Neots.
After two years I had to make way for an "All Rounder" from London, so I was made redundant!
I didn't mind as I had learnt a great deal about advertising, illustration, design, print, artwork, photography etc, and had travelled a bit, around England, with our Photographer.
I immediately found a job in Cambridge at a printers called Graphic Art Limited!
Back to the drawing board literally as I had to work in a caravan with 3 other art workers.
Again there were things to learn, serious paste - up, and working on a light box desk, so we could splice and paint out negs and clear film.
The company was a silk screen printers and a litho printers, and I first visited them to print my personal business cards!
We all had to clock in! yes really! as it was a printers and we were there as part of a team.
There was lots to do and learn and it was located near the famous Jesus Green Lido, so we were able to go swimming for 30 mins, during lunch break.
I would go home for lunch as I lived in Carlisle Road nearby.
We had a great deal of design talent in the caravan studio! Gordon Hurden and myself, had both attended the illustration course at Cambridge Art School.
The clients at Graphic Arts offered the occasional bit of illustration for us, usually the Cambridge City Council and the Arts Theatre posters, and when these came in we would vie with each other to get the chance to draw.
