More historical artefacts

I've been riffling through some of my old stuff and I found this little collection of illustrations.

Richard Evans

Back in the late 80s and early 90s I worked at TSBs management college in Solihull. Our unit produced a couple of training programmes using 12" videodisks. I did these pictures to illustrate an article written by my then boss (Theresa Barnett) about how they were produced. It's available here if your organisation has access to Emerald.

Probably the most amusing thing for me is the old new technology in the pictures. These were the things that surrounded me in my office at the time - 5.25" floppy disks, the big TV/monitor, the VHS camcorders.

In fact I was so pleased to see these after all these years, that I've decided to re-draw the people so that I can use them in Policy Police. I'm sure Big Hair will be back by 2025. Maybe a fashion that's just going away again...
