Q&A Emmanuel Constantinou,
Kwik Kopy Bondi Junction
Emmanuel Constantinou, director of
Kwik Kopy Bondi Junction, can see the
connection between design and
print. It’s called creativity, he says.
Why did you get into printing?
I’m generally a creative person and
printing suits me. I love how it can
make the dullest document shine.
What is your favourite phrase?
Hard is the new easy.
What is your dream job?
A TV judge.
What TV show are you watching at
I’m a regular couch potato for Lateline
on the ABC.
What is your greatest luxur y in life?
Believe it or not, it’s free time.
Who or what makes you laugh?
Everyday people. I generally find a
way to bring humour to most
If you didn’t work in print, what
would you be doing?
I’d have a design studio in Surry Hills.
This might not always be a way-off
If your house was on fire what
three things would you rescue?
Photos, wallet and car keys so we can
get out of there!
With whom would you like to be
stuck on a desert island?
My staff, because they’re resourceful.
What really makes your blood boil?
How do you like to
A glass of red.
Have you ever been said
to resemble a famous
person or character?

Those were the days...
One year ago 2014
The usually staid elections to the PIAA
board were anything but last October
as progressives and conservatives
vied for the available spots, with PIAA
president David Leach backing the
progressives, who in the main
prevailed. Biggest collapse of the
month was the Adelaide Worldwide
franchise, which had been bought for
and eye-popping $1m just two and a
half years prior. And Australia Post
was giving the first inklings it was
looking at radical plans to stem the
losses in its letters division, although
no-one could have predicted the 48
per cent rise it now wants to push
Five years ago 2010
October 2010 saw Neil Armstrong’s
Standard Publishing House collapse
with debts of around $2m to
unsecured creditors, with staff
claiming they had not been paid for
two weeks and had not received
holiday and super pay. Armstrong
blamed a dispute with insolvency firm
PVK handling the receivership of
Planned Print, into whose building
Standard had moved and from where
they were locked out. In the same
month Canberra-based Goanna Print
also hit the wall. In other news some
600,000 copies of the offshore
printed Ikea catalogue had to be
flown into the country from India due
to production delays on the sub-
continent, with sources claiming the
order for 3.75m copies had ‘gone
missing’ from the Indian printer.
Ten years ago 2005
PMP had a new CEO with Brian Evans
moving over from Fairfax where he
was COO and onto a $900,000 base
salary. His predecessor, former New
Zealand All Blacks captain David Kirk,
had moved the other way joining as
new CEO of Fairfax. Neither man
covered himself in glor y during their
stints at the top. Drago Zorec’s
Melbourne print business D&D took
out five awards at the US Bennys
vindicating his commitment to the
highest quality print, although it
didn’t save the company from
collapsing six years later. D&D was
the only Australian company to win
any major awards.
