RICK ATWOOD

I’m a 360° thinking Creative Director and Designer.

My work lies at the intersection of strategy, marketing, product and brand, and is driven by deep research, thoughtful insight, critical analysis and true empathy.

The results have enabled both global brands and startups to offer engaging experiences along the various user touchpoints. These engagements span many disciplines—from analog (branding, advertising, packaging, identity) to digital (UX design, social media)—across business, technology and products. I bring a holistic perspective of the entire customer journey, leading internal teams and stakeholders alike with grace and passion.
