Back in 2008 I left the corporate world to start my own business. With a long background in print and design, I launched Big Cat Media specialising in unique printed products featuring aviation, motorsport and classic motoring. The business has grown and changed direction over the years but the core aim of creating unique printed products has remained. As our product range covers a variety of subjects, I was keen to create more specialised areas and turn them into something a little more focused, hence this site.
All of the products you will find in our store are designed, printed, packed and shipped by us. We print every single item and design every piece of artwork. We have always aimed to provide high quality products that are unique and interesting and we hope you find something here you like.
As is the way in life, one thing generally leads to another. After getting into the printing trade by accident things sort of developed. Along the way I learnt everything from creating artwork, printing, marketing and management. Funny though it sounds, it's now all proving to be quite useful!
I have followed motosport and Formula One racing for as long as I can remember and that's quite a way back as I can recall some of the seventies and all that followed. I have been fortunate enough to see some of the all time greats in action and even had a go myself!
After starting work in the print trade I developed a keen interest in photography which lead to me spending far too much time at nearby Silverstone, normally in sub arctic conditions. I think the cold must have effected my powers of reason as in 1985 I enrolled at the Silverstone Racing School. This lead in time to one make racing and towing a race car around the UK, but that's another story.
I now spend my working life on projects mainly related to motorsport and aviation and it's a nice position to be in. After spending most of my working life involved with print and graphics I now get to choose my own projects to work on and I have to say this one is fun !
