The Problem Pictures resources were designed and written by Richard Phillips who also took all the photographs. He passed away in October 2015.

He was a freelance educational writer, photographer and multimedia designer. Prior to founding Badsey Publications he worked for 20 years at the Shell Centre for Mathematical Education at the University of Nottingham, and before that at University College London and the Royal College of Art. He contributed to many educational publications including Eureka (ITMA), L - A Mathemagical Adventure (ATM), Pressure Mat Programs (Panthera), Numbers: Facts Figures and Fiction (Badsey Publications), Coypu (Shell Centre) and the award-winning Population and Development Database CD-ROM (Population Concern).

The Problem Pictures resources are still available through Badsey Publications. The book Numbers: Facts, Figures and Fiction also remains in print.
