Liveryman Nick Kounoupias Appointed Director of ACID

Nick has recently been appointed as a new Director for ACID (Anti-Copying In Design) from January 2021. 

“I am hugely privileged and honoured to be appointed as a Director of ACID. ACID is different to any other IP trade association in the UK and has its roots in the IP theft of Dids’ own designs.
