I’m David James, a creative with experience in art direction, graphic design, illustration, UX/UI and photography. My background gives me the ability to develop processes for design teams with multiple diciplines. I have experience in a blend of design software, hardware and production methods which I now transfer to UX and UI Design. Understanding the importance of producing products within established guidelines allow me to ideate visual elements with analytical thinking creating intuitive solutions for the end user.

TLDR: I make stuff that works!
