Lee Callaghan has spent thirty years making words and pictures look good together. He went in at the deep end with a local typesetting company aged 18 and got to grips with the print and design trade from the ground up, eventually managing the design and prepress department of a large local print firm. It was there he crossed paths with balletLorent, working on some of their earliest pieces. After setting up his own studio in 2000, he continued to work closely with balletLorent on almost all of their design. After a brief break to get to grips with being a new father (missing Rumpelstiltskin), he's back to work on future balletLorent projects. He also runs a successful electronics business and spends a lot of time walking his dog in the greener parts of Newcastle upon Tyne and surrounding areas.
