'Design is much more than making things look nice. It helps narratives to make sense and helps people's journeys to be seamless. It helps products to be simple in their use and effective in their intention, and helps brands not just tell provocative and engaging stories, but relevant ones that truly fit their personality. Design is also the iterative process of making the most of the magic which starts with a good idea, be it big or small.'
'Along the way I've had the fortune to work on many great projects and collaborate with a lot of talented people. You can see some of the results of those happy accidents here. And yes, my middle name is Zachary.'
Richard is a big believer in craft, has a passion for experiences, photography, type, illustration, film, animation and the human use of technology. In his spare time you might find him running, in the mountains, woods, or on a bicycle.
