Richard Rowley

Designer, Project manager, UX, Business development

Richard brings his inimitable, elegant flair to every role he undertakes.

He's a very experienced designer who can help you re-imagine your project from the ground up. As a project manager his understanding of all the strands of work is invaluable to make the project a success. He can even get his hands dirty with some front-end development when needed.

Life before Agile Collective

Richard studied English at UEA, QMS and Oxford before going on to teach English as a foreign language for five years in various exotic locations such as Krasnodar and Madrid.

Richard found his love of design moonlighting as a poster designer while doing his PhD in early modern literature. His lives intersected for a while as he designed and built sites for Oxford's university colleges at a time when a one-person-band could still do such a thing.

He's been with Agile Collective since day 0.

When Richard's not at work

Richard's proud to be on the board of Ninth Wave Global , an international organisation which is re-imagining how international development works.

He tries to find peace with his abandoned PhD by teaching Shakespeare and the history of comedy to Oxford undergrads.

At the weekend he captains his local cricket team to greatness, and occasionally jaunts overseas to play or watch the game. He loves theatre, to travel and dreams of building his own house one day. Even more he'd love to have his own garden.
