Take Five with Richard Lalchan


Richard Lalchan is a web and graphic designer at his own company, RMLalchan and he creates imaginative and stylish websites for a cross section of clients from freelancers to charities.  He is a great person to speak to if you want to develop your website presence.

Richard is also the founder of Creatives Hub , a brilliant resource for anyone with a creative flair.  Whether you are a creative freelancer, or your creativity comes out in side projects, Creatives Hub is a place to meet other talented creatives, share ideas, support each other in your projects and get those long cherished creative ideas kick started.  I have been part of Creatives Hub for nearly two years and have loved the help I have had with my own projects, and seeing all the music, exhibitions, writing, of the other members come to fruition.  If you want to get started on your project, find a creative pathway out of an un-creative job, or just want to connect with others, go along to the next Creatives Hub Live and meet Richard in person - he is a very inspiring chap.

In your professional life, what is the single best thing about what you do?
The fact that I can do it. I feel extremely blessed to be doing what I'm doing; to have such variety in my work that fulfils many of my creative urges, and having the ability through being my own boss to create new products and services that help other creatives.

Do you have a creative hero / heroine and if so, why?
Too many to have just one. I've been inspired by a variety of people on the cutting edge of creativity. People like Aphex Twin - an avant-garde music producer to Jean Michel Jarre - highly creative artist and a big inspiration on me growing up witnessing his huge concerts - well, multimedia extravaganzas all around the world. Paul Boag and Mark Boulton, Sarah Parmenter on the web design front. Ingmar Bergman & Stanley Kubrick on a film making front. Arthur C Clarke, William Gibson on a writing front. All of those creatives' pushed the boundaries of their respective fields and thus are constant inspirations.

What piece of advice do you wish you had been given at the beginning of your career?
Don't follow anyone else's path. Ignore statistics suggesting what can or can't be done. Find a problem that resonates with you. Solve it with all your determination and passion. And, don't take yourself too seriously.

If you hit a creative block, what is your top tip for getting through it?
Give yourself 20 minutes to breakthrough. If you still don't, go do something else entirely. Get a change of scenery. Then try again.

And finally, for fun, if you were a shoe, what type of shoe would you be and why?
A brogue. Functional yet stylish.
