I am a Sunderland based Graphic Designer, most recently employed in the music industry, where I was responsible for the day to day visual output of a growing music promoter. Working in both print and on the web, I produced the artwork for the gig posters, flyers and ads. Alongside this I have produced graphics for and promoted, via social media, festivals, venues and club nights.

I have worked with...

Young Minds, SSD Concerts, The Brickyard, Nationwide (Via D&AD) Chester Le Street Soul Club, Club Concrete, West Walls Artists, Chase Park Festival, Good Vibrations, Youth Focus NE, Hadfield Trust, JIA (Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis), Luke’s Life Legacy, Treadmill Gym, Magistrates in the Community, Back to Basics (band), Visualising Conference, Cumbria Pride, Go Marry, Trimmed Beard, Simply Beats,


I would fully recommend James for any design role.
