Rob changed his focus on life after experiencing his first “real” night out, aka an all-nighter. He went from a suit and tie job in a bank to 10 years of life experience and ultimately fell into a creative career, becoming a pioneer of internet awards and showcases.
He founded Favourite Website Awards (FWA) in May 2000, a recognition program for cutting edge web design, which is widely recognised by the industry as one of the top recognitions in the world.
He’s published four best-selling books with Taschen and also created a children’s book in aid of UNICEF.
His work has been featured in numerous publications, libraries and museums including The Chicago Tribune; The Guardian; Financial Times; Penthouse; The Big Issue; Mixmag; GQ; Vice; Design Museum; and wrote a regular column in Adobe’s flagship newsletter for seven years.
He’s also a music producer under Rob FWA and a champion of mental health.
