Misconceptions over Rhodes’ departure

You refer to our having “lost” David Rhodes to Graphique after nine years with Holmes & Marchant (DW 12 July). This is a misrepresentation of the facts, which I am sure David Rhodes would confirm.

You refer to our having “lost” David Rhodes to Graphique after nine years with Holmes & Marchant (DW 12 July).

This is a misrepresentation of the facts, which I am sure David Rhodes would confirm.

The reality is that David was made redundant some ten months ago and hence there is no question of our having “lost” him, with all the negative connotations that this statement carries.

Indeed, as the appointment of Jonathan Davies evidences, we are hiring again following significant business wins in the UK and throughout Europe. We have also won a Grand Prix prize at the recent Starpack Award dinner, and we’ve just heard that our new Sanatogen design has been shortlisted for the Design Effectiveness Awards. In short, the future looks very bright.
