Starting out in 1972, Stuart undertook a 5 year apprenticeship as a Commercial Artist, where he had the honour of being taught by the masters of his trade. During this period he undertook training in design, signwriting, posterwriting and silkscreen printing, as well as attending The London College of Print & Design.
Upon finishing his apprenticeship, Stuart then spent six years working for other companies perfecting his craft, before starting up on his own in 1983.
Since then there has been no looking back. Making the bold decision to steer away from computer generated lettering, Stuart has concentrated on the traditional style of handcrafted methods, becoming a specialist in this line of work for the South-east area.
