About me
I'm George Ripton and I’m a designer, illustrator and all round creative based in London. Throughout my career to date I have picked up a wealth of experience, and an impressive skillset through working in different environments, stretching from in-house roles to agency and freelance roles., working in digital e-commerce sectors through to the print and advertising industry. Throughout my many years as a designer I have been fortunate enough to work with some fantastic clients. Audi, Visa, Nike, NBA, McLaren, Top Gear, ITV and JP Morgan to name just a few. Aside from these, I've been lucky enough to work on full scale rebrands, huge result driven campaigns, digital design in all forms, along with site launches in multiple countries, print design through global markets and many more exciting ventures. More recently I have also created my own brand, kre-eyt. The idea behind this was to celebrate and promote the sometimes unheralded, yet super talented creatives spread across the globe. Our aim was not just to identify these individuals but to give them a platform to showcase their work. We wanted to form a real creative and culturally diverse hub of talent, building a brand full of ideas, personality and ambition. We have amassed a hugely talented group of creatives, each bringing their own unique vision and background, with nationalities ranging from South America across the globe to Asia, with a collective Instagram following of almost 400k, multiple award winners including d&ad pencil holders, and disciplines ranging from 2d, 3d, tattoo and street artists through to animators and designers, each has contributed a unique piece of artwork that can be purchased on our website, to find out more about the brand head on over to our site here - https://www.kre-eyt.com

  • MIFA 2019
    MIFA 2019The Official Panini Sticker book is released for every major International football tournament and has proven to be a massively popular hobby for fans of all ages. However, the 2019 Womens World Cup sticker book only features 17 players from each squad, when in fact, squads include 23 players. So the MIFA project aims to illustrate every player that is a part of their world cup squad, but not part of the sticker book. The project encourages top artists from around the globe to take one player e
