JAMES DAWSON - OWNER OF JD DESIGNS

James studied at the renowned University of the Arts London, where he began a comprehensive background in design, production, marketing and brand development. His passion for design and perfectionist nature has led to his involvement in high profile branding campaigns, including the London 2012 Olympics and key Merlin Entertainments sites. In his role as Graphic Designer for Dukes of London, a leading promotional merchandise company, James created artwork for global cultural attractions, including Paris Zoo and Blue Planet. Recent and successful projects include branding for The London Sea Life Aquarium and Warwick Castle. 

When he’s not designing, you’ll find James documenting life with his Canon 5D Mark II camera, reading Shortlist magazine or getting his hands dirty in the garden.

PRESENTATION:
We’ll present our design to you and demonstrate our motives behind them.

TESTIMONIALS

 JD Designs completely grasped our vision and ran with it; creating a stunning infographic and range of adverts that clearly communicates our brand and campaign. We've been able to launch ahead of schedule, with early analysis showing a significant increase in website traffic. Their friendly and helpful approach, along with competitive rates will make it an easy decision to use their services again soon. 

David James, CEO, Total Car Check

James Dawson has been very influential in adapting and promoting the Dukes brand through his inspired designs. Through his extensive product knowledge, not only has he been able to come up with great ideas, but he is also able to advise on what designs are best depending on the material being printed on. Often designers can create an effective image but when it comes to printing on the physical product – it is not able to be done! James bridges the gap. We would highly recommend him to any firm.

Simon Tutton, Operations Director, Dukes Global

The artwork you produced was brilliant, thanks, exactly what we were looking for. Thanks again for working so well with the tight deadlines and everything being so last minute.

Rachel Norris, Junior Account Executive, All About The Idea

It's been great having JD Designs here; a really valuable addition over the short period of time. We'll definitely be looking to get them back.

 Rob Quirk, Associate Director of Marketing, Spencer Ogden

James was diligent, easy to work with, understood & translated our briefs well.

Jon Allen, Marketing Manager, Lyle & Scott

JD Designs were a great help at developing a new sub-brand for us. They produced some great designs that fitted the brief perfectly and also made some helpful suggestions about how it could be developed further. We will definitely use JD Designs again.

Ben MacCarty, Managing Director, Poisedale Ltd
