Illustration Series

Hi guys,

Happy New Year to all of you [who celebrate it]! Hope you have had an amazing start to the year!

As of mid-December; I started taking work for illustrations which I generally do in my spare time as to further bolster this side of my graphical design game!

Above are a selection I have done so far including two famous faces (Denzel Washington and Ianthe Cochrane (a model; formerly of Made In Chelsea)! Most were completed between Boxing Day and the New Year, but there are a few completed already this year!

I will be creating a special section under my ‘Graphical’ header soon to add each work individually.

Do enquire if you would like a drawing completed for a small fee.

Thank you for reading.


Kate at 50mm

I had the pleasure of assisting my local primary school out with their IT, and was lucky enough to be requested to take photos of their childrens' graduation event.


Most photos are for internal use and have been distributed in-house to the relevant heads of school, but I am happy to share this photo of one of the invited governors Kate - taken at 50mm on my Nikon prime lens. 

Let me know what you think of this shot. Others may pop up on both @r_ikoroha_photography and/or @iamroyikoroha (both Instagram handles)

Cheers for touching base!

R.I.D Turns 4!

I was in the shower today and it suddenly caught be full in the face that Roy Ikoroha Design is 4 today! 4!!!!!!!

Where has the time gone guys?????!!!!!

It feels like yesterday I was deliberating over processing the registering of R.I.D and the direction I was going to take the business in! Fast-forward to today and I can happily say I have covered numerous graphical design and photographic projects - all challenging me in their own unique way.

Four years in the game - plus several years prior to this learning my craft - and I can confidently say I have learnt so much, whilst continuing to challenge myself as a creative on a daily basis! 

Do we call this a self-portrait hmmm?? Myself shot at home, at 35mm, with a Nikon DSLR.  North London

Capping Off The Kaplan Experience

Hello all, 

As you may or may not have noticed, I've been quiet on R.I.D for several weeks as I have been completing a freelance contract for Kaplan International; helping create their design team produce creative collateral for both print and web!

It has been a great few weeks in Kaplan's West Kensington office filled by a thorough enjoyment of working with the in-house teams there and of course helping to produce the desired design work.

I will post more about this soon, but here's a photo I took a few hours before my departure :)
