I put my creative skills to the test with a variety of art and design related jobs. I enjoy freelancing and also working with a mixture of people; working at my best within a small or middle-sized team. I have excellent artistic skills and a very good handling of the Adobe Creative Suite.

    A thoroughly talented and knowledgeable web/graphic designer. He is personable and understanding of all our needs and has gone way above and beyond to help us get the recognition we needed. We will continue to work with Richard for as long as possible.

    Lecturer at Warwickshire College

    Rich has an excellent understanding of the latest trends in web design and web functionality because he places user experience at the heart of his practice. He has a real sense of how to develop appropriate and stylish graphic design for a range of different sectors. He also maintains an excellent blog on his website iopan.co.uk which contains some very insightful design tips and strategies. In addition, Rich produces small-scale paintings, featuring some idiosyncratic subject matter. They are powerful pieces that speak directly about issues of mental health and contemporary culture.

    I have known Richard for over 10 years and he brings dedication and creativity to every role in which he is engaged.

    Richard oversaw the full development and creation of a new and rebranded website for the Council of Disabled People Warwickshire and Coventry, of which I was the Service Manager at the time, taking a very static site into a new era, developing a strong brand identity for the organisation and a far more intuitive and interactive website for its users

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Richard for your web based or media project.
