Richard's take on The Everyday


The Everyday

Colour, pattern and shape are everywhere, some are just happy accidents and some serve a purpose, composed and framed for a brief second as you happen to walk past. Looking up, taking notice and recognising the everyday can elevate the mundane to a higher status. The Spontaneity of this provides much of the inspiration for my work as a Visual Manager. Here are just a few examples of why you should take more notice…
