Ideation and creation is my bread and butter, with years in reactive and fast paced agencies I have developed a quick process for conceptual design

Digital Design

An area of specialism over recent years, an increasingly important area of design with more and more of the world turning digital. This passion is now my main focus.

I love to nerd out with technology. This gives me an edge in campaign creation with new and emerging technology used for more interesting experiences.

UX to UI Process

A greatly overlooked element that effects more of graphic design than people like to think. It's way more than digital!

Creative Strategy

Apart from using tools, a significant portion of my time is dedicated to aiding customers, clients, and colleagues about the appropriate use of assets, processes, and strategies – knowing when and why to implement them or when to disregard them altogether.

Some positives

“James took more of a leadership role on our latest brand creation, Fyous. He created
everything from the name, logo, colours and brand guidelines. James has always blown me
away with his brand names. He has nailed it every time. Travel torque was one of the best.
James has led as head of brand at Fyous, directing our every move and guiding/educating
our graduate designer while managing many other spinning plates.”
Josh Shires
CEO & Founder of Itch / Duality / Fyous
"I always look forward to collaborating with James. He’s a smart guy with a huge passion for design, but he has that rare ability to make fabulous art work in an engaging marketing context. Whatever he’s working on, he’s the kind of person who won’t rest until he is certain the client will be eye-poppingly happy. James is incredibly popular with his colleagues and our clients are always delighted by his work. “
Libby Weston
Associate Creative Director
JC brings much more to the creative department than just design, he’s a great thinker and during the time I had the pleasure of working with him, he showed a keen ability to interrogate briefs, solve difficult communication problems and translate that thinking into relevant work that was soundly thought through. He has a playful and positive outlook allied to a mature attitude to his work, and can be utterly relied on in pressure situations. Don’t play him at pool; do build sandwiches with him at lunch.
