Available to hire

I’m Ricky, a South African born, designer based between London and Johannesburg. Utilising my academic background in humanities, I specialise in research-based projects that use the power of visuals to solve problems, change behaviour, democratise information and communicate big ideas. I have a special interest in health care and design that makes a difference.

I’m available for consulting, strategy and research as well as UX/UI, graphic, communication and information design. Don’t hesitate to get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.
