Richard Linsay

Richard Lindsay

Director / Head of Creative

Richard has creatively driven more than 40 signature projects
on the world stage. Richard’s experience has been forged from a design and motion background, where technology has always played an influential role in creative developments. This combination of design, creativity and technical know-how has been the building blocks for the ambitious projects that followed.

"Our value and our reputation should not rely on past work. As comforting as these experiences are, we’ll ultimately be judged on the work we have not even created yet. What’s in motion stays in motion. This is what motivates us."

Richard’s vision for the company is to establish AIM as a world recognised force in the realm of Creative Projects, with each project being a one of a kind.
