About me

is a London-based graphic design studio and creative practice run by Mark James. Established in 2017, the studio designs books; websites and identities for artists, musicians, cultural organisations and small companies, with a focus on exploring modes of production best suited to each client's needs. Previous to this Mark has a strong creative practice covering curation, exhibition design, independent publishing, writing and working with arts organisations to develop ideas and design led strategies. Most notably his is the director of The Library of Independent Exchange (L.I.E). which in 2014 published ‘LIE Lists of Ten Book’ which has gathered key proponents of “the book” to submit a list of ten important titles that form part of their personal book collections. The book has subsequently been added to art libraries internationally and in 2015 added to MoMA’s artist book collection. Selected Clients Arts Council England, British Film Institute, Hannah Barry Gallery, Art Licks Magazine, Cultural Olympiad and Universal Records
