Thank you for stopping by my digital home. You'll find links to all my continued endeavours as well as quotes from those who inspire me.

After graduating in design and multimedia, I spent several years honing my craft at London’s leading ad agencies including Wieden + Kennedy, AKQA and Ogilvy where I provided campaigns and award winning ideas for clients such as Nike, Coke, Adidas and Samsung to name a few.

I continue to work as a creative and experiment on an eclectic mix of projects across all areas of technology and visual communication. I also pursues a number of self driven projects including a weekly podcast, talks, workshops and a popular monthly newsletter.

Portfolio

Over the years I've worked on everything from concepting global print campaigns and designing brands, through to directing TV and music videos. I've helped to build and launch new technology platforms and designed websites that are enjoyed by thousands of people. I've also launched several events and been part of a number of exhibitions. Nowadays, I work on a few projects a year that I enjoy working on. Below are some updates and press features for my work.

Travel

Living a free life is a huge driver for me. I don't travel nearly enough, but when I do I like to take photos and document what I learn from the places I visit. I'm always looking for opportunities that afford me the luxury of seeing new places and exploring different cultures. If you have an opportunity that you think I'd be interested in, you can contact me at hello@rickyrichards.com.

Audio Blog

90% of my podcast episodes are with people who I admire or feel I could learn from. However, now and then I'll find myself explaining theories or experiences from my own life that I feel people could benefit from. When this happens I attempt to condense this learning into an easily digestible audio post. Subjects like how to overcome anxiety, the pursuit of happiness and the influence of inputs, are some of the most popular.
