Type Creative’s Juno claims the inaugural Pets in Print Trophy

The winner of the very first Innotech Pets in Print Trophy is… (drumroll)… Miss Juno Charlton, Chief Welfare Officer for Type Creative.

The Winner of Pets in Print 2024 – Juno from Type Creative

After hours of deliberation, the judges (Colin Sinclair McDermott, the Online Print Coach, and Jack Gocher and Kathryn Ridout from Eye on Display) were won over by Juno’s infectious smile. Juno’s role in print is to meet and greet visitors and brighten their day with her warm presence, bringing a ray of sunshine to everyone.

Colin said, “This was such a hard competition to judge because the entries were so strong. However, we felt the winner showed a great combination of the print industry’s hard-working ethic and extreme cuteness.”

Jack and Kathryn agreed, “We both had a very long shortlist, and it could have gone many ways. But in the end, we agreed that Juno deserved the trophy as she has a clear role within the company, proudly wore her bandana and sat beautifully to pose. She is obviously such a good girl.”

Kieran Dallow, Marketing Manager for Innotech, and Liam Charlton, Type Creative Director, were delighted to present the trophy to Juno and her owner, Lauren, the company’s Office Manager. Juno was excited to receive her trophy, doggie doughnuts, and certificate before returning to her working position in Type Creative’s reception area.

Speaking on her behalf, Liam said, “We are very proud of Juno for winning this award. She brings real joy to the office and is always prepared to offer a helping paw. The office is a brighter place when she is here.”

Eric loves to come to work on Thursdays and Fridays and has been working in print since he was 8 weeks old!
