Bob Eaglesfield of Big Bird Design has been involved in computer composition from the days of the "new technology" newspaper systems of the 1970s. From marketing to newspapers he moved to systems for high quality book publishers and typesetters – all this before the advent of personal computers.
When PCs arrived he promoted professional typesetting systems on networked PCs in favour of those early unproductive desktop publishing systems. When the web happened in the 1990s he embraced the technology.
In addition to design and layout, Bob has also been active in the writing and editing aspects of publishing – particularly scientific publishing. He managed the publishing and public awareness departments for two prestigious international research institutes.
Today's high quality systems for text, images and website presentation are wonderful tools and Bob thoroughly enjoys the challenge of keeping up to date with the continually evolving technologies – but these are tools, not solutions. Only with experience and flair can they be used to achieve worthwhile results.
