Chew showcases the work of myself – James Reid. I graduated in 2006 with a BA(Hons) and an MA in Graphic Communications and have worked in various roles within the design industry ever since. Over the last ten or so years I have immersed myself in branding, design for print/screen and illustration. My broad experience has helped me to gain a solid understanding within these fields and a skill set to match.

I am a firm believer in personal projects and experimenting/learning outside of the workplace. I spend a lot of time making things for my own pleasure and producing non client work, it keeps me passionate and has led me down some interesting avenues.

I currently work with businesses of all sizes both locally and nationally, providing innovative solutions that add value and exceed expectations. I have been fortunate enough to have worked with some great clients, agencies, collaborators and suppliers allowing me to produce work in various mediums across different channels.
