Richard Donkin

Richard Donkin is well known to Summer Creative. We’ve followed his career from writing books and Financial Times columns on the work place (The History of Work and The Future of Work) to his more recent work in photography. Who better, we thought, to illustrate the branding themes on the new website of our client Fuel Recruitment? We didn’t want dry pictures of glad-handing suits – just as well because Richard likes nothing more than crawling on his belly at sunrise, capturing images of red deer and bird life. We like his sense of style too. One of his chair images features designs by the legendary Arne Jacobsen.


Richard is known as a thinker on the workplace. His writing epitomises our branding behind the website’s excursions into the world of work – “fuel for thought”. He puts the same amount of thinking into his images, striving to capture individuality and character – the things that make the best stand out. We hope you like his work as much as we do. You can contact him through his website:
