Happy 1st Anniversary Andrea!

This month, we are celebrating a special anniversary.  Twelve months ago, Andrea Vinten became MD and launched Indigo Sky Solutions.   “Our family has been in the print industry for over 40 years, and it seemed right in many ways to carry that forward and build towards a more diverse and creative future, offering print solutions right across many formats”.  We are incredibly proud of what the business has achieved in the first year with Andrea at the helm.

During this year, Andrea has re-branded the business (which is a big task by itself), increased business income and customer base, struck up new supplier relationships (which means we can be more competitive on price, choice and deadlines) and has executed some great innovative print campaigns for our clients.

Andrea states

“From when I was very young, I always dreamed about being part of the family business.  I was obsessed with moving paper around and stamping slips & books with my little self made ink pads.  After many different career moves – all of which provided excellent and solid foundations, I am now lucky enough to be living that dream by becoming the head of a business I love and working with people and clients I love.  My favourite part of my role is the creativity.  From sitting with our team of designers and coming up with new ideas for customer projects, to putting the ideas into production and finally taking that finished idea to the customer.  Watching my client’s faces when they are so delighted with your creation is a real buzz.
I had worked with all types of businesses before-hand and always felt fascinated by how the cogs fitted together, including the relationship development, looking into new and interesting ideas and looking at new technologies as well as embracing the older, more established ways of production.  Now I am managing Indigo Sky, it’s given me the opportunity to grow and develop my own successful business.  Running a business is all encompassing, but I love it.”
Indigo Sky’s core business values focus around product quality and relationships.  As a frequent face on the West Midlands networking scene, Andrea reinforces those values by building strong relationships with customers, suppliers and staff.
Over the next 12 months, Andrea’s plan is to create additional jobs within the team and there are plans in place to move to larger office space.  It’s all very exciting and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.
On a final note, we’d like to leave you with one of Andrea’s favourite motivational lines:
“Get out of your own way…”
