Fine Artist and Designer Living in Warwick, UK.

iopan design is the name for my web and graphic design company based in Warwickshire, United Kingdom. My name is Richard Proffitt and I’ve spent many years studying and developing my art work and design work.

I am particularly interested in Fine Art; Surface Pattern Design (especially traditional Japanese textile designs) and camoflauge designs. I love Post-modern References; Mandalas and Magickal and Occult symbols. I love design work that has a sense of humour and I am always a fan of bright and interesting colour combinations.

My main website is at: http://iopan.co.uk and I keep a blog at: http://blog.iopan.co.uk.
