Calum Macdonald – graphic pro

WITH THE sudden death, just as the last issue of ArtWork appeared, of Calum Macdonald, Scotland’s artistic community lost one of its most talented graphic professionals.

Calum, one of the driving forces behind the Summerhall-based repro firm Giclée Uk, was responsible, with business partner Chris Pearson, for producing reproductions to the highest standards.

Many artists will have been familiar with the chaotically busy studio full of the latest photographic tech from which such beautiful results emerged.

Chris and Calum were responsible for many practical and technical innovations when they worked together in Aberdeen during the early days of the offshore oil boom.

During that period they ran the first automated transparency film processing north of the Central Belt and the first commercial Cibachrome printing facility outside of London.

Calum, an ever friendly fount of knowledge, will be much missed by the artistic community he served. It is hoped the name will long live on through the business.
