"James is one of the most talented and passionate creatives I know. His life revolves around creativity from filmmaking to graphic design to music. He has in depth knowledge of most facets of the creative process in a number of speciality fields and knows how to utilise the appropriate skills for the job at hand, always going beyond simply meeting client expectations. James brings world-class excellence and integrity to any project. He is a mentor for younger creatives and is generous with sharing his extensive experience. Like any inspirational or brilliant creative individual James is constantly developing his craft and learning new skills, never settling for anything below exceptional. James is always top of my list for any collaboration or project, he should be top of yours too. Needless to say, highly recommended."
Harlan Hodges, Composer (Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge)
"James is one of the most mindful, caring, and raw creative talents I have every had the pleasure of working with. His fine attention to detail at whatever creative task is at hand is always elegantly approached and executed. He has an open mind to what others bring to the table as well. I can only describe his work as "holistic" in nature. It is informed through a deep and expansive knowledge across many creative disciplines, but maintains an artistic voice that is truly personal. There is no greater pleasure than being able to work alongside other individuals who challenge you to become a better version of yourself, and this has always been my experience in our work together. James’ distinct creative vision and blend of technical craft is flawless, and he has that constant razor-sharp ability to execute work that is gorgeous, timeless, and continually exceeding expectations. James is one of the most well rounded and intuitive creators I've ever worked with.”
Mark Elizondo, Experience Design Director (Tribal DDB, Moon Design, Digital Eskimo)
"James and I started our creative pursuits together. I was the mature aged student determined to start fresh and he was the talented youthful student who was finding his feet. Throughout the years we shared our passion for design and often spoke about how design can be a true influence. In our many conversations, and mutual mentorship, I found James to be the talented designer of integrity. If you get a chance to see his work, you will see his dedication to a high quality of storytelling. He collaborates with respect, he is true to the vision and he aims to deliver with ownership and passion. A renaissance man, always evolving."
