I have been in the sign and graphics industry for over 40 years, starting as an apprentice at General Foods in Christchurch learning the art of hand painted sign writing and painting covering such skills as design, preparation of substrates, sign installation, health and safety, screen printing, gold leafing, ticket writing, building signage, footpath signs, wooden engraved signs, gold leaf honours boards, illuminated signs and all aspects of the sign industry.
Achieving apprentice of the year and receiving my trade certificate.
On completion of my apprenticeship I started business as Langham Signs, this I later sold and moved to Marlborough to set up Creative Signs & Graphics enjoying the better climate and progressive business growth.
I consider myself lucky to have a job i love."find a job you love and never work a day in your life"
