Richly is a vision that goes beyond these personal services.

Richly places consideration into the potential need for brand identity, online registration requirements, current industry trends & competition, and of course, local design thinking & user experience practices that can set you apart in your local industry.

Design thinking practices don’t have to be for the giant corporations, it can work on a local stage too, and as micro-businesses are starting to boom there’s a lot of scope for local design thinking practices.

Having a recognisable identity isn't just for a large scale corporation. A local business can give a lasting impression to its customers with the right branding message and image.

Visual communication is an important part of business. Much of what we perceive about a product, service, or even an individual, is done before we are even consciously aware of it.

This is especially true today where any local business can gain an online presence, and where we have to take in so much visual information before making a conscious decision of what we want.

The subliminal messages behind our branding can really help a potential customer connect your product to a positive message and image. Give the wrong message and customers might not understand what it is you are even offering.

creative eye course

seek and turn on your creativity

Creative Eye is an online course (& periodic face-to-face experiences in a workshop) by Richly founder Rich Williams, where he imparts years of experience in developing a creative-analytical problem solving mindset (using various techniques & activities), so you can generate and apply more impacting ideas in work & daily life.

tell me more

Following learning various techniques to get your creative brain in gear, you will then be put to the test with a sample brief to develop as many ideas as possible (and narrow down to the best solutions, explaining your process).

In the session, you will also learn: why & how creativity can be an important asset giving you an edge in business and life; how the creative economy works and why it is important to be involved in; how to be inspired even in uninspiring settings; how to develop many ideas (& building ideas from other ideas); and how to determine good ideas from bad ones.

This course is useful for:
- individuals starting creative projects;
- graduates & executives looking for a creative edge in business;
- anyone who justs wants to open their mind more, have fun, and stop limited thinking.

createups & creatics

inspiring meetups for creatives

Createups is an initiative by Richly which connects creative people locally (via its network) who are trying to develop both creative & startup projects.

Through local meetups (or via video chat), users can find a 'creative buddy' to share and offer feedback to each other's respective project, then pool together, streamline and spark improved ideas to help progress each project further.

tell me more

Creatics also involves creative meetups, but involves finding someone else as a disruptor who can give constructive critism by pulling out problems with your ideas to help you iterate towards more valid solutions. We need this just as much as a shoulder of inspiration and praise, as disruptors help us pick out the problems we might have missed due to being too attached to an idea that either just does not work or there is a need for. Having someone there to look from the outside-in can be an invaluable resource (& mentor) that leads to more output that going it alone.

Createups work in conjunction with Cafe.Work.Study - a Richly Venture that aims to help make it easier for freelancers to find cafes to work or study on-the-go easier, and around their personal needs.

Richly Ventures

Healinno, Comforth, Journeyspired...

Beyond the creative workshops and meetups, Richly Ventures looks further into inspiring people to be more proactive and creative in life (with current & future planned ventures).

Firstly, Healinno is an idea generating, managing and developing platform for the masses, that takes Richly sprints to a whole new level.

Comforth is a comfort zone challenge platform that enhances life productivity (and thus creative output).

Journeyspired aims to inspire people to physically step further into new surroundings and learn to be location-independent.

SmartboardIt is a patent-pending innovation that is effectively a smart whiteboard & app that helps teachers, students and meetings record explanations on the whiteboard before wiping it.

CafeWorkStudy works with Createups that helps freelancers and students find ideal cafes on the go to work or collaborate in.

Finally, writing projects like Bearventures aim to ignite imaginations through adventure stories that help readers learn English as they go through the journey.
