Tutor Profile

Bernhard's initial foray into the graphics world was as a screenprinter. Seeing an opportunity for better things with the advent of the Gerber 4A he started his own sign company in 1984, with one of the first machines delivered in Europe. In 1987 Bernhard then moved away from sign making and became a supplier to the fledgling sign industry across the whole continent, supplying the Thermazone Fastboard PC interface for gerber users, and then supplying complete sign making systems as the market flourished. In 1996 his suppliers became his employers when he joined CADlink as European Sales Manager based in the UK, a post he still holds today. Bernhard is well known among his peers in the sign industry for his wealth of knowledge and unbounded enthusiasm; you may well have seen him at Sign UK in recent years giving product seminars.
