Gary studied at Southend College of Art gaining a Diploma in Graphic Design. His first job was with Euro ADV as a junior designer, from where he progressed to Studio Manager.
Fancying a change of location he left these shores to work for a year in Sydney for Southside Studios as Studio director.
An offer came from the UK to help set up a new design/imaging company, called ‘The Covent Garden Art company’, this was arguably the premier company of its kind in London at the time. As director/shareholder his roles included setting up the imaging deptartment. Clients included Saatchi & Saatchi, GGT, BMP, TBWA and Simons Palmer Denton.
Selling his shareholding in 1998 he formed a new company ‘Taylor Lane’. As the managing partner his responsibilities involved running the imaging deptartment including moving into the CGI space. Clients included Craik Jones, M&C Saatchi, O&M, Lida, Scholtz and Friends and various direct clients including HR Owen and Danris.
After 10 years he left to build a new company called ‘The basement project’ with the legendary DM specialist Drayton Bird.
Two years later an offer came to head up ‘Amazing Spider’, Loveurope’s dedicated imaging division. Working across all the group clients and a turnover in excess of £I million with new offices in Soho this was an exciting time to be involved with Loveurope.
