Hi, I'm James, an Art Director who's conceptually obsessed and visually OCD. I started out at the holy church of KesselsKramer, and then worked at both Anomaly and Khanna/Reidinga. Currently I'm available for freelance.
I work conceptually in art direction first and foremost. Being hands on with every detail is vital for me, from ideation to actual execution, no matter the medium. I’m currently based in Amsterdam, having lived in both London and Munich. I grew up in Worcester, England and studied Graphic Design in Falmouth.
I love making work that doesn't take itself too seriously, but is seriously well done. People hate advertising, it's rarely worth their time - that’s a reality that a lot of us forget. People love irreverent, funny, kickass culture that fills the world. I work to make the latter for brands, people and friends. Because why would anyone care about something if it was anything less?
Want to work together or have a chat? Drop me a line and Say Hi!
