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.
