Hello! I'm James.

I'm an Art Director + UI/UX Designer based in beautiful Vancouver, BC.

A decade spent in the digital industry has given me an eagle-like eye for detail and a chameleon-like ability to adapt to new environments (its also given me an octopus-like knack for writing animal metaphors).

As an advocate of user-centric experiences, I’m passionate about creating designs that are both visually appealing and a delight to use. I believe that great design grows from strong ideas, crafted in collaborative environments. 

When I’m not designing, you'll find me out jogging, drinking flat whites or reviewing and illustrating craft beers for my blog.

My sketches and illustrations are also available to buy online.

Looking to collaborate on a project or opportunity? Let’s chat!
