Hi, I'm Rich Kersey, the proud founder and solopreneur behind ker-Z creative. I was a late reader, in need of other ways to story tell, lego became a powerful form of communication for me.
Reading didn't really click with me until around 7 years of age, I put my love of picture-led literature down to this. At this age I had a teacher who was able to inspire me to read fluently. If it hadn’t been for Mrs Brown my parents wondered whether I would have learnt to read at all!
This interest in coloured bricks became a strong skill to solve visual problems. Combined with a love of drawing, my younger self started to hone the skills that would lead me to launch ker-Z creative.
After studying art and design at college I went on to study graphic design (packaging) at degree level. Post graduation I dipped my toe in the world of agency life, freelancing in London before returning to the west country and entering corporate life within the internal studios of Dyson, AXA, Williams Lea, Friends Life and later Aviva.
As my time at Aviva came to an end, I decided that a 20 year apprenticeship was long enough, the time had come to leave corporate life. ker-Z creative was born and I began using the skills and experience I had acquired to support SME business owners with their branding and motion graphic needs.
