About me

Rich is one of those new hybrid creative types. Part writer, part art director, part cornish pasty. He's equally happy coming up with ideas for a global brand campaign or crafting a piece of digital with functionality at its core. If there is a brief to be solved, that's where you'll find him, generating ideas and creating engaging solutions.
