About Graphic Education … How did it start?
The enterprise now known as Graphic Education was founded by David Mason in 2000 as Visual Science and produced science overhead transparency sets exclusively until 2004. Mid way through 2004 the business expanded into poster production.
Since then a second trading name “Graphic Education” has been adopted for the production and supply of posters into the broader educational market.

David was again promoted to Head of Science in 2000; a position which he held until he resigned in early in 2005 due to increasing business demands. He was appointed to the chair of the District Biology Panel in 2004 and resigned in 2005.
Graphic Education has grown to a point where it requires David’s full time attention.
In recent years the business has continued to grow thanks to the many teachers and others who have shown faith in our products as well as, several talented individuals who have contributed to the development and production of the materials.
