It’s our people that make us who we are. We’re lucky enough to have some of the best names in the industry on our team. They’re creative and driven, with decades of experience across all sorts of industries and technologies.


David Dunkley, Master Signwriter

David has been with the business since 1968 and has grown it to what it is today. Over the years he’s worked on a huge array of projects and his expertise is invaluable to the team. One of the most unusual projects was carving wooden whistles for use on the tail feathers of pigeons (the client offered payment in cabbages) and the most visually striking has been signwriting a Burrell Showman traction engine.


Karen Barnett, Managing Director

Karen returned to Cornwall to run the family business following a spell in London working for some well known companies. She’s built up an extensive network of quality contacts throughout the industry and is always keen to open people’s eyes to how creative the business can be – her favourite project has been working on the build of a 9m high replica soup carton for install in the heart of Covent Garden.


Paul Bryant, Project Manager

Paul has over 30 years experience in the business. He has a strong client base, the keenest eye for detail and a love of all things heritage. Couple this with a thorough technical knowledge and it means Paul can tackle pretty much any project thrown at him; from steelwork and illuminations for Butlins to sign and interpretation schemes for The Eden Project and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust.


Joe Hedge, Creative Manager

Overseeing the design department, Joe is calm, organised and sees that projects head to production with every last detail specified. Skilled in both production and design, he’s a technical expert with experience in working on unusual projects in all sorts of materials.

Working with Joe are Helen, Simon and Sam with skills in 3D technical design and graphic design.


Simon Farnell, Office Manager

Drawing upon 30 years experience in the business, Simon oversees the day-to-day running of the office and is the main point of contact for estimating. With a love of Cornish mining heritage, Simon’s favourite project were always going to be The Lode Model – a 3D relief of the Cornish coastline, which featured interactive lighting for shafts, lodes and moving parts that revealed mineral deposits and the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site visitor centre refurbishment at Minions on Bodmin Moor.

Working alongside Simon are is Wendy




Sophie Lester, Production Manager

Sophie ensures the production side runs smoothly.  She’s the interface from design to production and ensures that projects leave us on time.  Sophie is one of the main points of contact for our National Trust cafe POS contract and can spot a good cook-book addition from a mile away.


Andy Johnson, Print Manager

There aren’t many places around the country that Andy can go without spotting something that has run through his print room. Trained in vehicle wrapping, he oversees the day-to-day running of the print and vinyl department. Along with his team he’s wrapped most things, from generators to track units and everything in between.

Working with Andy are Marc, Nick and Liam.

A versatile, creative team.
