LFH was an international branded packaging consultancy, specialising in packaging design, structural design, and print management (artwork, repro, and colour management). Stephen was contracted by LFH as a Senior Creative Artworker and high-end Retoucher. He worked primarily on the colour development of master illustrations, photography and master elements that were tailored to specific print processes for the new Flora Heart design rollout. This involved the management of many artwork SKU’s (Stock Keeping Units) across multiple languages. Franklin’s considerable skills in the packaging environment were ideally suited to this type of creative yet highly pressurised business with demanding standards.
