About Richie Design

If you haven't guessed it yet, my name is Richie or Richard (If i'm in trouble with my wife!). I am a freelance website, social media & print designer who specialises in social marketing. I am based on the east coast of Suffolk, UK.

I offer a range of Internet, print & marketing services. As well as mobile friendly website design & website redesigns I offer Big Cartel customization, Facebook application & page design, custom Tumblr websites, Twitter & YouTube design, social marketing & content creation, promotion & SEO advice.

With over 12 years experience in commercial web design, print design, social media design & digital marketing I know how effective a well designed website & digital campaign can be to your brand, band or business. Your search for a professional web design company should stop here. Give me a shout for friendly & helpful advice.

Designed on the Coast

I grew up in the charming seaside town of Southwold in Suffolk with not much to do other than skateboard or play music & I was pretty bad at skateboarding. Many of us started playing in bands & doing little shows around where we lived. It was these bands/friendships that would later take us all over the UK & Europe in smelly old vans playing to anyone that would listen.

Digital media was on the rise, music was becoming more accessible & fans now expected to see & consume much more online. We could all feel the impending impact that social media was about to have on the music industry. It was an exciting time to be in a band.

Having previously trained towards a career in art & studied website design at music college. I grabbed a beat up old Windows laptop & started to design simple websites, create cool social content & hacked MySpace pages for my band, then my mate's band, then my mate's mate's band & then the bands I grew up listening too! Within two years I was the top returned listing in Google for the search term 'MySpace Design' & so began 'Richie Design'.

Since 2007 I have been lucky enough to work & hone my design skills with some awesome brands, bands & business of all sizes, from a wide variety of industries from all over the world. I have seen social media evolve; witnessed platforms take off & watched as some disappear into total obscurity. Living & breathing social media & digital design for so long has given me a very rounded experience which has proved itself invaluable to my business time & time again.

These days if i'm not in the office designing badass websites or marketing the latest thing on social media I can normally be found travelling around the country with my wife & son in our campervan, playing or watching a gig somewhere or simply hanging out in my favourite town sinking a couple of Adnams.
