Simon Roberts Design & Print

I began my career in 1992 working for a slide company in Sale. I produced artwork for thousands of slides and overhead transparencies on a daily basis for a wide variety of industries until Powerpoint quickly got a grip on the slide market with instant computer presentations.

At this point I left the design department and gained experience in a new and upcoming service in the form of large format printing. I helped the new mounting, laminating and finishing department to grow and quickly became responsible for all finishing. I operated a large Sallmetall mounting machinery to finish off large posters, boards and one of the first ranges of pop-up stands on the market.

After 18 months I moved on to a new company, a market leader where I was instrumental in helping setup their new in-house finishing department. My role was to finish every rolled up print from the large format printer to a fully tested and erected exhibition stand from their wide range of trademarked products of all sizes.
