WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO

Professor Richard Weston is the inspirational and innovative leader who started combining his lifelong fascination with the “designs” found in nature with the latest digital techniques to create highly magnified images of the “insides” of minerals, rocks, plants etc that have an enormous range of applications, while their appeal is universal and instinctive.

Richard was Chair of Architecture at Cardiff University, has published 12 award winning books, and built the award winning Radiant House, and has designed what would be Britain's first Digital Arts & Crafts house using many of the images and techniques developed with Weston.

He was the "break out star" of the 2011 BBC series Britain's Next Big Thing with Theo Paphitis, which led to Liberty stocking Weston scarves, and Vogue calling him "the most unexpected new talent in British fashion". Everything else is, as they say, history.

He is Creative Director of Weston Earth Images, and has also set up a not-for-profit organisation as the first step towards establishing a charity dedicated to educating the young (and the not so young) about discovering nature through digital technology.

We are proud that Weston branded fashion accessories, primarily scarves, have been stocked by many of the finest luxury retailers - Liberty, Harrods, Harvey Nichols,and Fortnum & Mason in London, for example - as well as stores ranging from Le Bon Marche in Paris to Takashimaya in Tokyo, and major online retailers, not least Net-A-Porter.

Yet we have always believed that our main potential lies in supplying large file size images for applications by designers and creative people not just in fashion, but even more in art and industrial design, graphic and interior design as well as in architecture and construction.

Our brilliant and dedicated core team is led by Helen Price, who is at the heart of so much of what we do, Tina Grace, who works with Richard and has all the right design instincts and expertise to make the very best of them, Kate Savin, who holds all the admin and logistics seamlessly together, and Nimi Ahilan, who not only counts the money, she makes us money - and feel better about life.
 
Finally, Martin Price is the major shareholder along with Richard, and runs the business side. He and Richard had a fun business together before WEI, and Martin has been marketing and business development consultant to BlackBerry, Channel Four, Ford, Microsoft and Virgin among others as well as the founder shareholder in several businesses over the years.
