My name is Rick Plasters
I am the founder of RP Design, LLC in Birmingham, Alabama. I am a freelance graphic designer and have been providing ideas that work, successfully articulating communication strategies for 30+ years. My clientele includes Corporations, Universities and Colleges, Companies and Organizations and individuals with a need to establish a lasting positive image and communication.
I received a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from Virginia Commonwealth University. My graphic designs have been recognized with many awards during my 30+ years in the industry. Over the years I have paid close attention to details on just about anything that I would do. I consider myself to be a perfectionist at things that I do.
In 2015, I continued to do Graphic Design, but took up drawing again, I have not drawn anything since my college days. I consider my level of drawing to be “God Given Talent”. I love details of closeup of all types of animals and birds.
I usually work on several bodies of work concurrently. With attention to detail and the long hours it takes to produce a work of art, sometimes I need to set it aside to start something fresh, I then go back to that work of art having a new and refreshing look at the subject seeing things that I may have done that need a little more work to accomplish a final piece.
While I use a variety of materials and processes in each project my methodology is consistent. Although there may not always be material similarities between the different projects they are linked by recurring attention to details. The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the form of the work.
