The Gipping Press Print Design team have over 65 years of experience in designing for the print media. That experiences means that they know how design ideas will translate to the finished printed item and are able to create clever ways to create maximum impact without having to break the bank to do it!
The team is headed by our Managing Director, Jonathan Steed, a graphic designer who has worked in the printing industry for over 30 years and joined the company in 2008. Jonathan’s role as Managing Director means that he does not have as much ‘hands-on’ design involvement as he once did but is constantly bouncing ideas around with the studio team to help create quality design.
Simon Parnell (pictured at the top of this page) has also been in design for print for over 30 years and has seen the industry change beyond all recognition. The one constant during that time was the need from the customer to get the most cost effective solution to their design needs and this is where Simon truly shines. His knowledge of fonts is unrivalled and he can recognise most fonts simply by looking at them.
Joseph Cook joined us in 2015 as an apprentice in the studio and is rapidly learning the ropes. His ability to learn and listen to what people need, means that he will pick up on the experience of Jonathan and Simon very quickly. Joseph is working very closely with Jonathan to learn how the regular magazines are put together with the ultimate aim to be the sole designer for all regular publications.
