Meet the Team: Calum

by Nathan Swinson-Bullough

Calum Maltman, Project Coordinator at Imageco

We’re continuing with our ‘Meet the Team’ series to introduce you to more of our members of staff here at Imageco. Last time, we introduced you to Robert; this time around, we sat down with Calum Maltman, our Project Coordinator.


Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’ve worked in print for 9 years now as a printer and have also done a bit of print finishing.  I started a new role working in the office at Imageco in August 2023 which is completely different for me but is something I am really enjoying. Away from work I enjoy spending time with my wife and two sons as well as reading and watching football.


What inspired you to get into the print industry?

To be honest the opportunity came pretty much out of the blue and I went into the print industry without any prior knowledge or experience.


Tell us about your journey working at Imageco.

In the short time I have been here I’ve learned a lot. Large format print is relatively new to me, but all of my colleagues have been really helpful which has been great.


What’s the best thing about being in the Imageco office?

Undoubtedly the people. There’s a great environment here for people to work and learn in. The atmosphere in our workplace is a real driver and is the best way to get the best from people.


What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?

So far, I’ve enjoyed all the jobs I’ve been involved in. Every day is different here, each job has its own specifications and learning how to collate all this together is something I find really enjoyable and interesting.  Right now though, we are working on a cool retail brand activation in Manchester, a Dr Martens install at the London flagship store and a huggeee exhibition in Berlin.


Describe your job in three words.

Interesting. Enjoyable. Different.


Who would you most like to swap places with for the day?

Any of the players selected to represent Scotland in the opening fixture of Euro 2024 against Germany in Munich.


How do you think more young people can be encouraged to get into the print industry?

There should be more awareness of print as a viable career option. Before I was in the industry, I very much believed it was a dying trade – and in some sectors that’s true – but large format print in particular is everywhere around you wherever you go in life, and I don’t see that changing any time soon.


If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would it be and why?

My hometown, Tillicoultry in Scotland. Very rarely do I get the opportunity to go back but when I do I like to savour the scenery and the way of life there.


And last of all, give us your best piece of advice!

Be honest with yourself, try your best, play to your strengths, simplify things where possible and don’t take yourself too seriously.


Want to join our team?

Our team at Imageco is forever growing, and we absolutely love building a workplace that is not only creative but one that people love to work in, fostering a culture of collaboration and continuous learning.
