About George MannAfter 30 years working for IBM as a professional programmer, latterly as a software usability specialist, George started his own design and print business in 1993, taking advantage of the combination of his programming and artistic skills at the advent of the internet and web sites. The success of his first book, Mabel's Story led to others.
A key aspect that George brings to a project is his ability to offer suggestions and advice to his clients, often being the first 'cold reader' or 'user' of information. There is also an element of fun.
Quality is an important element of any project, as George's extensive portfolio and range of satisfied clients reflect. Most of George's work has been by recommendation from his clients to others.
