Richerbydesign is the personal blog of Lydia Riley.

I’m a magpie, maker, creative, curator, thrifter, thinker,

dreamer, doer, potterer, painter…

…and stuff.

More specifically, I enjoy making drawings and lecturing part time on UG degree courses, including BA Hons Illustration, Graphics, Animation, Fashion, Textiles and 3D Animation, where I teach various aspects of visual communication.
