Mark Gatter, Academy Class
For the past 30 years I have worked in the graphic design and commercial printing industries. I've been production manager of print shops in both the UK and California and have run my own graphic design studio since 1990. What I have found, all too often, is that:
1) Printers don't talk to graphic designers, and... 2) Graphic designers don't know that they should be talking to printers.
The result is often frustration, extra work, higher costs and less than perfect results.
If this sounds familiar, please take a look at my new book (published in September 2010) called Production for Print.
I've been delivering training courses since 2000 and now work with Academy Class, a great training company whose main office is right opposite Waterloo Station in London. Academy Class also has state-of-the-art training locations in Glasgow, Manchester, Cardiff, Newcastle and Birmingham.
Michael Tomes, Creativepool
Hi I am the MD at Creativepool. Hopefully by now you know what we do - we find the best creatives to fill the best roles out there. But more than that we have created a community of like-minded creatives.
I'm looking forward to seeing how creative you can all be in reworking famous images. Have fun with it!
One lucky winner will win £1,000 to spend with Academy Class. This can be spent on any class and can be used on multiple classes.
Four runners up will win 50% off any course with Academy Class. The total cost of the course is not capped, so if you sign up for a 5 day course you'll be saving roughly £500. This prize can only be used on one course.
