About

Projekten is run by Roger, based near the Lake District in Cumbria, UK.

Typesetting

I started out as a typesetter, doing my apprenticeship with the Printing Institute in South Africa in the early 90s.

These were days when you had a person for each job – one scanned, one photoshopped, one typeset. The work covered annual reports, adverts, page layouts and more.

Apps: QuarkXPress and Pagemaker

Corporate Graphics

On moving to the UK, I worked within the likes of Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley – providing design services for corporate management and events management.

This was during the Morgan Stanley rebrand and an interesting time to be aboard.

InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop

Freelance

Later I freelanced. Helping small to medium sized businesses with their websites, print and branding. A rewarding time.

Apps: InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, WordPress, ModX Revolution, SimpleCMS, Concrete 5
