I am Richard Wezensky: Creative Services Director, (formerly associate creative director and art director), graphic designer, artist, husband, father, bicyclist, advocate and sci-fi pop culture fan.
Maker of Art:
A ‘maker’ has to make. My ambition, motivation and passion are driven by art, creativity and design. Having worked many years in the graphics, print and advertising industries, I’ve developed a broad range of experience throughout my career. I’ve been at my current agency, LAUNCH, for over 19+ years, where I continue to stay inspired to make good design and even win a few awards.
I am re-exploring the analog (and sometimes, digital) side of art with sketching, drawing and illustrating. You can see this journey on my sketch Instagram account dickdavid_sketches or on my sketch blog dickdavid.com. This creative reset has given me a fresh perspective on the projects that I work on for my clients and I’m open to try more visually challenging solutions.
Rider of Bikes:
I am also a bicycle enthusiast and advocate, where I spend most of my free time riding or working to make bicycling better in my area. I describe myself as a “Practical Cyclist” and “Bike Commuter.”
I am the founder of the blog Suburban Assault, which is focused on riding a bicycle to explore my city, as well as using it as a practical form of transportation. I’ve also founded Bike Friendly Richardson, a very active bicycle advocacy group in the city of Richardson, Texas.
I am a former President, and now the Director of Education, of BikeDFW, one of the largest bicycle advocacy groups in north Texas. I am also a League Cycling Instructor (#3760) with The League of American Bicyclists.
