ROB NORTHAM

Brand + Interface Design



⸻ LDN based creative and systematic thinker playing at the intersection of brand, design and experience. Currently an Executive Creative Director and the Head of Visual Design at R/GA.

EXPERIENCE



⸻ A proven creative leader focussed on scaling brands, creating value through signature experiences and working to create a more human future. I build, lead and mentor teams across disciplines to drive positive change. I’ve worked with some of the smartest people, asked the most stupid questions and helped Dr. Dre become a billionaire.

SPECIALITIES



⸻ A designer at heart—I think, make and craft with a human centric approach. I lead and mentor the best team of designers to create concepts, brand identity, strategy, digital experiences, design systems and visual languages at the intersection of systems and stories. I seek truth and simplicity to make the complex clear.
