Chew Studio showcases the work of myself — James Reid, a Cardiff based designer specialising in brand, visual design and UX/UI design. During my 13 years in the industry, I’ve been lucky enough to work with various design studios and brands both locally and internationally.

I’m a strong advocate of ‘play’, personal projects and conceptual thinking are an important part of my continued development and outlook as a designer.

So far, I’ve won a couple of awards, shown up in some exhibitions, appeared in a few books and worked in different parts of the world… Not too shabby.

If you would like to discuss a potential project or collaboration, please feel free to get in touch.
