"James is a great source of inspiration. He's full of ideas and hugely enthusiastic about the role that great design can play. I needed help to visualise a complex set of data for a client presentation and James managed to untangle my thinking and create an incredibly effective graphic which 'sold' the idea. (And as a bonus, he did so well within the deadline.)" - Karen Birch
