Hi, I'm Richard.

I am an experience designer. I love all things design, but I am also deeply passionate about the need for design's ability to solve the complex problems of our world. 



I'm a multi-faceted designer with a passion for using creativity to build products and tools that solve problems and improve the way we live.

I have many years of experience in public service which has made me excellent at creating experiences accessible and easy to use by everyone and building consensus with clients.
