Keep up to date with us, our projects & more!

Richard is the co-founder of Brookstone. He also takes a leading role in SEO and marketing the websites we design. 


Nothing upsets Richard more than poor website design, he rants on about how important it is for every business to have an outstanding website and can't understand why so many businesses don't! He goes on about websites being a shop window for a business and why would you deliberately let your shop window look poor and uninspiring. Nothing winds him up more so please don't start him off!
