I am Richard Harrison. I trained as a graphic designer in colleges in the North East of England and London. My career really started with a job as an art director with Conde Nast working on the promotion and advertising for Vogue, House and Garden and Brides. From here I went to work in the heady world of the London/International advertising agencies and brand design companies where I gained experience in many market sectors including automotive, retail and financial. Leaving London to set up my own creative services business I headed back to Yorkshire, a move that proved a great success as the company grew and thrived for over 20 years working for clients in a range of B2B markets like workplace safety, home improvement, footwear, engineering and construction.
Although my training was in design it soon became clear to me that I equally enjoyed the process of copywriting especially where this involved clearly communicating the benefits of a complicated product or service.
With the advent of the web and the digital age I instantly became a fan and got involved in what I realised would become the most powerful communication tool available to businesses and individuals.
As I work quite regularly in Europe, today you will find me working out of my office in deepest East Yorkshire or in a sunnier location from my office at the top of a mountain in Andalucía Spain.
I enjoy reading crime novels and political histories, my grandchildren, contemporary art, and the view from my Spanish office.×
