Having finished a Foundation year at Newport Art College, James started his career in June 1985 working at Brian Hughes Design in Usk at the offices of Sector Design Group.
After three creatively influential years, he resumed his formal design education at Newport, graduating with a BA (Hon’s) in June 1991. Whilst studying for his degree, James was an exchange student at the Hochschule, Luzern, Switzerland where he studied under Hans-Rudolf Lutz.
After graduating, James worked for Barrie West Associates in Ross-on-Wye and then Peter Gill Associates in Cardiff, but ‘self employment’ was always the aspiration.
WOOD&WOOD Design Consultants was formed in April 1993.
For the past 25 years, WOOD&WOOD have sought to remain small and agile, working across industry sectors for private, public and third sector organisations alike. Always delivering creative, original and substantive solutions for our clients whatever the economics, fashion or technology of the time.
