About me

I'm a senior creative with a wealth of experience in many areas, working

collaboratively between strategy & design to enhance a brand's ability to execute

it's goals. I thrive in problem solving environments and have significant brand and

design management experience gained from in-house & agency creative teams,

spanning online and offline brand development.

Great results come with a fair bit of dialogue and an understanding of what a client

really wants, absorbing then creating intelligent, beautiful and relevant work.

I have a proven track-record of pitching for companies and helping them to win new

business. Over the years, I have built up many contacts in the creative industry such

as photographers, illustrators, web designers and film makers so I know how

to source and brief the best people.

My antennae are out at all times. I draw inspiration from a wide range of sources.

From fashion to art and science to the natural world, I approach a brief from diverse

angles and enjoy exploring the connections. I think creatively and avoid clichés.

I enjoy being hands-on and happiest working on a range of projects. I nurture

talent, helping people to flourish and inspire creative teams to achieve their best,

whilst hitting deadlines and working to budget. Work should enhance life not

diminish it.

Regards, Richard Wise
