About James

We are James, an independent strategic branding and design agency with a proven reputation and track record for driving and delivering effective business results.

Dedicated to the success of our clients, we develop seamless brand solutions that change behaviour, transform business and drive sustainable growth. We do this by bringing together the power of creativity, curiosity and strategic expertise – helping ambitious clients unlock the potential of their brand vision and define business purpose.

Our disciplines and capabilities are expertly crafted across brand communications: from brand strategy and positioning to name creation to brand refresh and restoration, we create brands that enable companies to communicate intellect, spirit and passion.

Our Approach

Our agility, authentic solutions and collaborative spirit have given us a reputation of being a results-driven strategic partner.

Brands that stand the test of time are based on a fresh approach to finding a unique creative edge. Finding creative solutions that have competitive advantage takes courage, a willingness to move beyond a rigid approach, and thinking differently — and the way we think assures clients of meticulously planned strategy that is effective, relevant, compelling and drives creativity. This approach enables our clients to communicate with clarity, delivering growth across business, brand, and culture.
