With this motivation, Fred decided to study graphic design at Wrexham College of Art and Design and the Wiltshire College of Art and Design, thus embarking upon his 30-year career in the consumer package goods industry. He worked as a designer for Smith & Co. from 1990 to 1993 and a senior designer for Brown Inc. from 1993 to 1996.

Returning to Wilton Industries in Chicago in 2003 to 2005.

Mr. Richards further flourished as the worldwide executive creative director of consumer branding for the Brand Union from 2012 to 2014.

Since 2014, Mr. Richards has excelled as Kaleidoscope's chief creative officer and partner. He has been additionally active as the aforementioned company's chief marketing officer since 2019.

His decades of expertise and portfolio of high-profile work in the fast-moving consumer goods industry established him as a sought-after speaker and presenter at private events and industry conferences.

Looking toward the future, Mr. Richards hopes to thrive as the owner of Kaleidoscope. He attributes his professional success to his passion and dedication, as well as to a nimble approach to meeting client and market needs.
