Hey! I’m James. I like ideas💡, emojis 🔥and quorn nuggets. I don’t really know where I fit between the heady world of advertising vs. the traditional graphic design studio – but what I do know is I focus on a strong idea executed with a boat load of love. As corny as it sounds (and I do love sweetcorn) 🌽I love all areas of design – I dip me’toe in a lot of ponds from illustration, a good old branding project to the realms of motion graphics and animation.
