Celebrating creative commitment and dedication at Porterhouse


As a busy, global healthcare communications agency group focused on delivering scientific and creative excellence, we recognise that one of the main factors of our success is the people we employ. We are delighted to congratulate Richard Oakham on his long service of 5 years at Porterhouse Medical Group.

Since joining our agency in 2016, Richard has made a very positive impact on our internal design processes and interactions with the creative team as a whole. He ensures that all design projects go through a creative senior review process, where work is checked for consistency, correct use of brand guidelines, compliance, design feasibility and creative excellence.

In his role as Creative Director and Chief Technology Officer, Richard has been driving the growth of the creative team through expansion, as well as training and development, increasing our creative offering to include video editing and animation proficiency (in addition to our digital and print experience). The COVID-19 pandemic has vastly increased the need for innovative digital solutions, and the creative team has risen to the challenge with animation and motion graphics expertise, which has impressed both colleagues and clients alike.

Richard commented, “I am very excited about the advances that we have seen over the past 18 months, and I am proud to be part of a fantastic creative team and it’s been great to have the opportunity to build on our expertise both in terms of design excellence and innovative tech. We look forward to the future of digital design technology and continuing to expand our creative horizons.”

Richard also embodies one of our key company values “Together as a family, we grow and flourish”, as in 2020, he trained as a Mental Health First Aider and regularly offers mental health support and a listening ear to his colleagues.

Congratulations on your long service and thank you for all your hard work, Rich! We look forward to watching your career continue to blossom and our creative team continuing to flourish.
