IAN HARROLD, Creative Director

Ian has been employed in a number of creative disciplines over the years. Graphics has always been an integral part of his creative approach.

In the 1970's he trained as a jeweller/silversmith at Sir John Cass School of Art, London, the pre-eminent college for teaching the complete range of graphic design & craft techniques. Ian then worked as Assistant Production Manager at Cartier Ltd, New Bond St. before opening his own workshop.

In the mid 80's an opportunity arose in the new field of motion graphics. He created a department at CWA in Leicester where his team developed equipment & software for presentation graphics and video production. CWA were the UK market leaders.
He then moved to the South West and broke in to television graphics at the newly formed Westcountry Television Ltd, working on Quantel Paintbox/Picturebox systems & developing motiongraphics.co.uk, creating broadcast motion graphic title sequences with a specialism in bespoke maps. His latest project was the creation of original animation, design & visual effects for the full-length feature film 'To Say Goodbye' which was screemed at the San Sebastian International Film Festival 2012.
