About me

 

Hello, I’m Richard Gregory, graphic designer, creative director and image maker. I’ve been a professional designer for 37 years, as rgdc since 1992, specialising in brand communications. My work is based around intelligent, relevant ideas applied across printed and digital media. I run projects from strategy to delivery. My studio is in Dorset, England; recent clients come from Europe, Australia and across the UK. The practice is a member of the Design Business Association. Beginning in 2015 I am migrating my business towards a content-based model: still taking on design commissions, but dedicating a growing amount of time to writing, mentoring and independent projects.
