I've had the pleasure of working with James for the last 2 years and I can say that it has been an extremely positive experience. James has a real talent for visual design and branding.

He can understand the brand you’re trying to create on a deeper level and bring it to life. He always rises to new challenges, never backs down and maintains a positive attitude with anything he does. If you have the opportunity to work with James, consider yourself lucky!

James approaches product design with an understanding of when a problem needs a right-now solution and when it's valuable to invest time and resources into a full cycle design.

With this, he empowers teams to run fast on the most valuable problems. Working with him I was impressed with his ability to build internal relationships with the engineers implementing his work — he invites conversation and builds strong bonds between functions.

James played a vital part in helping us launch two products at Nanoleaf, one of which was our first-generation entertainment product. He assisted in designing the control interfaces in the Nanoleaf app.

He is an easy person to work with and is always willing to contribute wherever he can. Another advantage of having James around is that you get to meet his dog Kuma, who is also a great team member to have around, just like James 😊.
