Paul Rice is a creative from Ireland, currently based in San Francisco and working as an art director for Venables, Bell & Partners.

Prior to moving to California, I lived and worked in London as an art director and designer for numerous studios and agencies.

My background is a broad spectrum mostly comprised of film and motion projects for the fashion and music worlds. I also have a strong background in both print, branding and experiential design.

I am a graduate of the Limerick School of Art & Design (LSAD) where I received a first class honours commendation.
