The US and the UK boast a thriving signage and visual communications sector with exciting new innovations launching each year. But for two countries with such a wide range of similarities, how does the signage sector here in the UK differ to those of our friends across the pond and what can we learn from them?

If you can print it, we can do it.”

It was not just his sixteen years in a high-demand corporate career but also 20 years in the US Air Force in which Kendall Lemley became an expert problem-solver and friend to people under pressure.  “I started my career as an active duty US Air Force officer, specializing in IT, Communications, and Cyber Security.  After almost a decade, I transitioned to the Reserves, where I served another 12 years as an Admissions Liaison Officer for the US Air Force Academy.  In my civilian career, I worked as an IT Program Manager for the General Electric Corporation for over 15 years.”  It was as 2017 approached that Kendall decided that he was weary of being a relatively small cog in a massive organization.  He was ready for a fresh start.
