60 seconds with: Remous

Remous founder Graham Bunter started off writing and publishing a magazine about stock cars, which he printed in his garage.

Today the firm is run by Graham’s son Alan (below).

Q&A: Doug Nelson, managing director, NB Colour Print

Doug has been in print for 32 years, so he must have started in the business at a formative age. And even before that he spent his school holidays working on a Rotaprint. Ink runs in the veins of the Nelsons at Chorley-based NB Colour Print. Doug has chosen not to share his most embarrassing moment, and we’re wondering if it is perhaps linked to his 1980s fashion choices?

Q&A: Daniel Reed Designer, The Cafeteria Studio

Steve Johnston, managing director of Paper Innovation, has worked in print for more than 20 years. He is an avid fan of Preston North End FC and would love to see them play in the Champions League final - but he wouldn't mind missing the game if he was marooned on an island with Cheryl Cole. Strange, that.

60 seconds with… Ditto 4 Design

In 2002, Ron Fothergill was working in a Blues Brothers show. “Many of the acts we worked asked us to design their posters and leaflets.
