Shortly after that i decided that dealing with the Chemicals in paint was no longer for me, and i moved from paint to vinyl signs in 2009 i named the Business Simple Signage which is still one of my trading names, and have been creating signs ever since, also in 2009 i developed an interest in Web Design and i started learning the code behind websites, with my interest growing i decided to change the Business name in 2013 to reflected the changing nature of the business.
