I’m Rick Hincks, I’ll keep this short and probably not very sweet, there’s no point in adding any extra fluff.
Put simply, I’m a Manchester based freelance designer who works across both print & digital, and, when the situation calls for it, I can dabble in a bit of front-end development. My background covers the whole range of design, from branding & marketing to web design and video. My recent work has been predominantly digital, but my real love is for creating the whole integrated campaign for a brand and seeing it develop.
I’m a big believer in making sure you’re proud of what you and your agency put your name to and not just firing out whatever you can get paid for. This helps nurture creativity and requires being given the time to develop new ideas no matter how big or small or ridiculous and having the time to build them up and see them flourish. There’s nothing worse than churning out the same unimaginative stuff day in and day out.
I’ve spent the last 2 - 3 years on large projects for Unilever, Lexus and Coats plc.
