Richard Hart is a designer, illustrator, type nut and – most recently – a weekend artist. He is happiest when he’s making. His output includes posters, publications, flyers, packaging, furniture, interiors, exhibition design, painting, sculpture and few objects that are less easily described. He has also produced a handful of musical compositions that have been described by his wife as “truly unlistenable”.
Hart and his sister Susie founded their Durban based design studio, disturbance in 1997. In it’s fourteen years of existence the studio has gathered a respectable little collection of trophies, certificates, column inches. disturbance works for clients in South Africa, Canada, Europe and Australasia and keeps things interesting by regularly undertaking self initiated projects.
He also believes that designers are remarkably well poised to make a real difference in the world if they can only rise above their own egos and channel their creativity a bit more wisely.
When Hart is not designing, he:
- Believes that being creative requires oblivion to boundaries.
- Has produced a handful of musical compositions that have been described by his wife as “truly unlistenable”.
- Has produced objects that are less easily described than his formal work.
