SERVICES - What I offer

Gary Bigwood trained as a graphic designer, his first job was with Clarks Shoes where he gained a grounding in corporate design working under the guidance of design group Pentagram.
Later moving to London he spent several years building up direct marketing (off-the-page adverts) and catalogue skills at Grey Direct. Promoted to Studio Manager he ran the catalogue team at the agency producing The Innovations Report, The Leading Edge and Kleeneze catalogues as well as catalogue production for Pact International, Misco (computer supplies), Webb Ivory and Scotcade.

Gary's staffing now includes a team of experienced freelancers who are drafted in when specialised skills are required. These include catalogue designers, specialist copywriters, illustrators and photographers. The ability to call on freelance resources as and when needed is what makes A4 such a flexible and cost-effective solution.

His services are flexible and can be on a daily, weekly, monthly or project basis. Additionally he’s able to work inhouse or in his own studio or as a Project coordinator (ideal for a complex or indeed any new catalogue).
