Richards' process began with extensive research: visiting grocery store aisles and coffeehouses to study packaging, bottling, and labeling, and even delving into insects once he settled on a beetle identity. This solid research foundation and preparation work are evident in the cohesive finished product, in which every detail has been thought through.
Growing up, Jordan Richards was fascinated with the joyful experience he had when holding a well-designed product. Curious about the design process and people that could produce such happiness, he was driven to study design at Oklahoma State University. There, he discovered his true passion—and he hasn't stop dreaming big since. Currently, his main interests are interactive design, packaging design, and iconography. A Texas transplant, he now resides in Seattle, where he’s pursuing visual design in the tech industry.
