Design and Publishing Notebook

About This Blog

After studying and graduating in Electrical Engineering from Monash University, I joined a small publishing organisation where my work with typesetting equipment kindled an enduring interest in graphic design.

This has been my main area of work for over 30 years. For much of this period I have operated my own graphic design business. Fortunes have fluctuated but at it’s high point in the mid 1990s we had a staff of four people … and this was in a Queensland country town.

I have always been interested in learning more about both the technology and the art of design. Fine typography has always held a particular fascination.

This blog is intended to cover the broad field of design for both print and the web, including both the technology and the art.
