Rich Martin

Senior Sound Designer, Envy

If your idea is a melody, craftspeople are the musicians, and the thing is - they’ve both got to be good.

Rich Martin first developed a love for manipulating sound, messing about on reel to reel machines at the local hospital radio.

Flash forward a few years, and after a stint as Head of Sound at Blue, Rich finds himself a Senior Sound Designer at Envy Advertising. His creative endeavours have been rewarded with a fruitful career contributing to some of advertising’s best loved campaigns, bringing with them credits on Black and Yellow Pencils, Gold Arrows, and Cannes Lion winning awards. 

In addition to his Sound Design work, Rich has given a musical identity to television channels around the world as a composer, notably providing the soundtrack to idents by BBC, Discovery, UKTV, and 4Creative.

Away from the industry, but only just, Rich is also the founder of an online radio station he set up to answer the threatened closure of BBC 6 Music, which went on to create ripples throughout the then nascent world of online radio.
