About me
I’m Richard Gregory, graphic designer, creative director and image-maker. I’ve been a professional designer for 40 years, running my own brand communications practice since 1992. My work is based on intelligent, relevant ideas applied to printed and digital media. A self-starter, I run projects from concept to delivery. My studio is in Dorset, England; I have worked remotely throughout my freelance career. I have extensive experience in the arts, education, engineering, tech and travel sectors. Away from the design environment, I enjoy cycling, walking, photography, fine art and songwriting.

    Nominated for Silver: use of illustrationD&AD
    I commissioned and art-directed Dan Fern for illustrations in a corporate capability brochure by Citibank Mortgages. The intended reader was investment bank leaders. Dan produced a trio of works that took cover and full page positions. The design team then fragmented the illustrations for use as visual punctuation within the typographic narrative of the brochure. Tim Fendley (applied_wayfinding) and I shared credits for design and typography.
