Andy Gowers

Premier Design

Andy got into design by chance. As a 16 year old, he got a last minute call to an interview at (what was) ET Heron’s in Silver End. This resulted in the offer of an apprenticeship in the printing industry which Andy jumped at!

Herons moved to Heybridge and so did Andy. He didn’t like it very much, wanted to get out, but the rewards were too great, and the risk too high.

In 1995, the decision was made for him. Redundancy. With it came a nice payment that he invested in his own Mac. There wasn’t much change!

After setting up the business in a box room in Witham, he continued to grow slowly but surely, moved to larger premises – still in Witham – then on to his current location in Boreham.

Andy now has a great team behind him, and is constantly striving to improve his business and help those around him too.

Best of all, he’s still learning…
