About me

Jamie Allen is a Creative Designer based in Hertfordshire, delivering effective, innovative and strategic solutions to brands. Inquisitive as a child as to how and why products work; subsequently taking things apart; a natural ability to problem solve led to pursuing a career in Design. Starting with a passion for designing football boots, Jamie was unaware at the age of 6 that this would guide his career path several years later. A keen city hopper, visiting museums & historical monuments; as well as embracing culture; has provided continuous inspiration to broaden design thinking. Attentive to detail, Jamie aims to consider both intrinsic and extrinsic factors when approaching a brief. Entering a project with an open mind-set allows Jamie to utilise his knowledge of brands. University allowed Jamie to create emotion through design by evaluating the object/brand value as well as the wider context. Understanding consumer behaviour towards a design has been a key skill developed during University and since from professional experience. Since graduating from the University of Hertfordshire in 2014 with a 2.1, Jamie responsible for all design work (from Products through to Marketing) at Amethyst London - while liaising with clients regarding designs – before becoming Design & Production Manager at Curious Book Co. since May 2016. With experience of working alongside international Luxury brands, Jamie has been able to develop a leading design edge in branded products as well as understanding brands.
