And little bit of the 1960s

While man walked on the moon, I worked for a studio, Commercial Art Services in Sussex Street, Sydney, from 1969 until travelling by motorcycle to Perth and back in 1970.

History shows that I fast-footed my way back to Sydney, put a portfolio together, and started my new adventure on 27 July 1970. Right in the middle of a very, very cold Canberra winter.

I spent 8 productive years in The Australian News & Information Service working on many design projects promoting Australia to the world. That was the ANIBs role and the professional group of journalists, editors, photographers, film producers, and designers. Another 2 years were spent in government as I was seconded to the Department of the Interior to help set up the structure for the upcoming ACT Government Publications Unit.

During that time I worked nights and weekends freelancing for local businesses until I finally took the plunge — left the ANIB — and went from freelancer to full-time graphic design business in 1978.







Some 1970s work.
