About Roger

I was trained in typography and graphic design back in the days of hot metal and letterpress. I have over 40 years’ experience as a proofreader in the printing and publishing industry, the last 30 of those working for corporate design agencies specialising in annual reporting, marketing and branding projects for FTSE350 companies.

I have worked on projects for BP, Royal Dutch Shell, Marks & Spencer, ConvaTec, Sainsbury, Tesco, British Telecom, Diageo, SABMiller, Carlsberg, Prudential, Barclays Bank, Aviva, Old Mutual, Rio Tinto, Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline, Workspace and Land Securities.

I’m a stippler for keeping to the traditional values of English grammar and punctuation and my pet hates are ‘text speak’ and the fact that most people these days don’t seem to know when and how to use apostrophes!
