A varied role that required a broad knowledge of Pre-press and Printing. Progressing through various roles from art working, running the studio, training staff and technical support.
I was seconded by the development team so that I could help develop bespoke plug-ins/extensions for the automated processes we were creating in house. This included beta testing development builds of software, analysing the results and making recommendations.
Due to my experience with the software, I became responsible for ensuring all members of production staff are kept up to date with changes in procedure and software as result of the automation. To support this I produced in house manuals and documentation.
As a major client moved all their production files to InDesign I was tasked with setting up a training course to ensure operators are conversant with InDesign. While Team Leader for Point of Sale and Special Packaging I assisted in the roll out of these new processes across both our production sites in London.
