About me
I’m James, a Designer with a wealth of experience in delivering impactful and effective campaigns for the world’s biggest brands. I can create across all digital and print media. I am an honest, hard working individual with the drive and ambition to make further progress in the creative industries. I possess a get-upand-go attitude and have achieved consistently high results in all aspects of life. I’m efficient, organised and good at keeping track of time. I am looking for studio or agency creative design positions. INTERESTS: I like to have a lot on my plate. I like to keep busy, I like to keep fit and regularly use the gym. Design is a passion of mine; I like to keep up to date with developments in all areas of design. I enjoy reading articles on developments in product and footwear design, fashion, architecture and digital design through sites like Dezeen and Hypebeast & Highsnobiety. I’ve always been actively involved in team sports and carry the knowledge that good team work is essential, but I believe individual discipline is also required. I have always had a positive outlook on life. I’m very interested in ‘Bass’ and ‘Beats’ music genres and have a passion and real respect for footwear design Please get in touch if you feel we could work together on something great.

  • Creating Cliques
    Creating CliquesNo risk, no reward. After a disappointing first year of sales and awareness for the new Glitch boots, adidas were in need of a targeted campaign that threw away the rule book and saw their boots become the new sought after item in football. Working with creative and cultural-strategic teams, another talented designer and myself led co-creation workshop sessions to establish groups or ‘Glitch Cliques’. The Cliques were to act as influencer figureheads for a campaign that raised awareness for th
  • Great American Tastes for the UK
    Great American Tastes for the UKJust not available in America... Sorry America! Great Tastes of America was a source of great confusion at the start of my first involvement due to the team abbreviating it to ‘GTA’. Being a gamer this conjured up visions of an awesome Grand Theft Auto x McDonald’s collab. Alas I was soon corrected. After finally getting that out of my head, at the third time of involvement in the project, I was given the opportunity to lead it. During the effort to provide the UK with an authentic American vi
  • Making Aero Dynamic
    Making Aero DynamicSee what I did there? As part of the Great Tastes of America ‘19 campaign I was challenged by McDonald’s to create contemporary digital and static posters to launch a revisit to their popular Aero and Peppermint Aero McFlurrys. The most challenging aspect of the development process was the limited assets available when working with the Aero brand elements. My role in this project covered art direction of the motion pieces and design execution/oversight for print and static digital elements of
  • Avalanche Ice-cream by Vue Cinema
    Avalanche Ice-cream by Vue CinemaI created an ice cream brand! As lead designer on the Avalanche Ice Cream launch, I was tasked with creating a point of purchase kit that translated well in a cinema foyer and stood out when side by side with Vue Cinema’s existing creative. The name Avalanche (just the name) was already established for the product, so projecting imagery and language that was inline with this title was key to the success of the product’s performance. Such were the levels of detail to this trial launch, that we
  • Project AiMY
    Project AiMYA CREPE-Y CONSPIRACY “Project AiMY began when a janitor discovered an unknown ‘Air Force 1’ shoebox buried deep within a store cupboard at Nike’s headquarters in Oregon. The box contained a number of confidential documents, dating from 2002, that explicitly detail the use of chemicals to influence the way in which the public interact with Nike Air products.” This statement isn’t actually true. It is a fictitious conspiracy I created to represent the formulated and scientific nature of modern br
  • Elevating In-venue Comms
    Elevating In-venue CommsClearer Combos. Vue Cinemas see themselves as the premium offering for film fans in the UK and more than just a cinema. In 2018 I was briefed to update their point of sale to reflect this more so than their existing POS. This meant designing, story boarding and art directing sequences for their digital menu boards that allowed products and offers to shine in their own light. Due to the complexity of this project we produced a scheduling document that outlined when and where in their varying e

    D&AD Wood Pencil for adidas GLITCH Cliques"D&AD Pencils are never handed out unless the work is good enough." It's said that a D&AD Pencil is the equivalent of a "career knighthood". So you can imagine how unbelievably proud TMS are that we were awarded a Wood Pencil for our adidas GLITCH Cliques campaign!
  • adidas - Glitch
    adidas - GlitchCo-creation like never before. adidas adopt an open source strategy: grow share of market through share of trend and share of mind. Why? Because they recognise that traditional marketing won’t reach audiences that don’t consume traditional media. adidas Glitch is a new breed of football boot which sits at the heart of the strategy. Developed in collaboration with adidas ‘football creators’, it has interchangeable inner and outer skins that can be switched up to suit your mood. To suit adidas aud

    I have five years agency experience at The Marketing Store where I reached a level that I was overseeing more junior designers and leading projects. I reported into department heads and creative directors. I’ve gained a great understanding of agency processes and refined my skillset. Through my self-led projects I have displayed my entrepreneurial attitude and hopefully expressed my passion for the sports/fashion and sneaker industries.

    adidas Glitch Cliques No risk, no reward.

Working with creative and cultural-strategic teams, another talented designer and myself led co-creation workshop sessions to establish groups or ‘Glitch Cliques’. The Cliques were to act as influencer figureheads for a campaign that raised awareness for the Glitch app. The campaign culminated in a special event where a lucky select few won the chance to attend, have great food, listen to the latest UK Grime artists, engage with football based challenges and of course, receive free merch. All of the above was realised through filtering the data we gathered in the previously mentioned workshops.
