With more than 20 years of agency experience working for national and international clients, James brings a wealth of knowledge and perspective that informs design and provides innovative solutions for our clients.

James pioneers our creative processes to ensure communications are relevant, engaging, strategic and most importantly, effective in solving client objectives. Managing the workflow of creative projects from the account team and ensuring a high standard of design work, James also offers support and account/project management advice across the agency to ensure a joined-up approach. He ensures that every piece of work leaving the studio is engaging, eye-catching, on-brand and meets the brief.

When not at work or kept busy by his daughter’s growing list of recreational activities, he enjoys nothing better than a cultural city break, good Italian restaurant and keeping fit running and at the gym.
