Notting Hill Mendrilla

Recently I had the honour of photographing friend and fashion stylist Reena Lakhani on the streets of Notting Hill - streets that are amongst some of my favourites ever! She’s photographed wearing a stunning bespoke hand-painted Mandali Mendrilla 2-piece!

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.

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 :)
