About

Hi there, I’m James. I am a friendly, conscientious, and sturdy person who designs while enjoying life. I feel that my ability to creatively solve problems in simple ways combines with my steadfast moral backbone to put me in an exciting spot in the universe. My design process is an ever-evolving one that facilitates productive feedback and allows for the solution to be discovered along the way; respecting our planet, people, and cultures throughout. I start designing by identifying the problem and building out constraints for the solution to remove as much subjectivity as I can throughout the process, as I believe good design to be objectively successful.
