This was my first job in print, back in 1998. Before the interview, I read the Quark Xpress manual from cover to cover.
West Mercia Supplies are a purchasing consortium supplying office equipment to schools. I was responsible for producing a 600 page catalogue. This included creating and editing the Quark documents, art directing the photography and organizing the printing; from the £100,000 tender exercise to checking the final product as it came off the press. I worked here for about a year.
