About Dynamic Impressions, Norwich
The day to day running of Dynamic is down to Barney and Katrina Phillips.
Katrina oversees the accounts and liaising with clients. She is 'hands on' with design and photography work. She has a brilliant eye for colour, balance and design. "Her creative input on brochure design, page layout and logo design is invaluable" commented Barney. "I often get the credit for a design that was a direct result of one of our design meetings" he added.
She is also responsible for getting those urgent jobs out she is equally happy packing up boxes and arranging couriers collections. She is noted for the love of her dogs, two of which are pictured below!
Barney spends his days designing and thinking of type. He prides himself in his typeface knowledge and is known in the trade for his ability to identify various fonts. He is even sad enough to go on-line and enter a competition recognising different fonts; his score being in the top 25 in the country! There are few people able to do this. He has a couple of mates that help him on the ones he has trouble with, he, in turn helps them when needed!

Another member of the team is Mark Critten. He has been with Dynamic for over 17 years. A keen footballer, playing for Fakenham Town (amongst others). He has a reputation for speed and scoring lots of goals! He follows Norwich City Football Club and goes to pretty much every away game! He also loves his holidays and the Stereophonics!
Mark is the back-bone of Dynamic. When those impossible rush jobs get completed it is usually him that makes sure the team gets everything done!
Susan Huish - a team member for over 16 years. Susan processes all the jobs at Dynamic. Busy behind the scenes, digging out previous job samples, electronic artwork files and getting everything ready on the job bag. A few years ago one of our clients welcomed her to the team. "I haven't spoken to you before, are you new?" he asked. "I've been here for twelve years" she answered. She's like an undercover agent getting everything ready for production!
Barney is a founder member of Norfolk's prestigious networking group 25:am. Now in it's ninth successful year "Our group is built on very solid foundations with no pressured referrals that franchised groups enforce. Just natural business" he says. Adding "People start their businesses to be in charge of their own business destiny. It doesn't seem right to then have people tell you what you can and can't do!"
