With over 15 years in the design game internationally – six of those years freelancing in London with agencies such as Interbrand, Clinic, and Attik – he brings to his work a wealth of experience and creativity honed at the highest level.

 

Since returning to New Zealand in late 2002, Rick enjoyed a year freelancing before accepting a permanent role as a member of the creative team at Maxim (Auckland). Joining ICG in 2006, he took on the role of Art/Design Director in 2008 where he exercised his passion for design with creative leadership and control of much of their Creative Department. Today he enjoys the freedom of freelance again and is available for bookings now.
