Pikuseru - Motion, Web & Graphic Design

Pete Richards - New Media & Graphic Designer

Pikuseru is the brand, trading name & alter ego of Peter Richards, a digital artist offering web, graphic & motion graphic design services.

Currently working as a lead digital designer for one of the UK's largest retailers in Worcestershire, UK, Pete also works with local, national and international clients on selected projects.

The name Pikuseru, comes from the Japanese version of the English word pixel, and was chosen because of a long term affection for Japanese art & design, and the importance of the pixel as the building block for all visual digital content.

Over the years our clients have benefited from the service, attention to detail, value & innovation we are able to offer as a small independent studio. Above all we see our customers as partners in the design process, and aim to offer content on-time, to a high standard & all at a fair price.


Some things Steve Caplin (author of how to cheat in photoshop) has said about our Photoshop work:

"An inspired work, and the execution is fantastic."

"Beautiful, compelling and truly astounding work from Pete, who has created a gloriously convincing entry."

Pikuseru wins Streamliner Competition

January 2011

We are pleased to announce that Pete Richards has picked up 1st place on the Streamliner Competition hosted on the 3d-for-games.com web forum

The task was to design and build a 'Streamliner' (or modify an existing design). The design was judged for aesthetically pleasing form as well as for function, provided it captured the spirit of a Streamliner.

The competition was open to use any software.

Pete decided to reinterpret the classic 1920's Bugatti Type 35 as a modern streamlined version sketching out the concept in Photoshop before powering up Maxon Cinema 4D to build and render the images.

The competition was judged by Chris Wise – Managing Director of Virtual Mechanix & Andy Gahan, Author of 3D Automotive Modeling & 3ds Max Modeling for Games
