Hi, I'm James

I'm designer / developer / entrepreneur type living and working in London. I am co-founder and director of Animade, a London-based animation studio, and Boords, an online tool which makes storyboarding simple. I founded and run both companies with my business partner and all around good egg Tom Judd.

The goal of this site is to share lessons learned starting, running and growing a small creative business. I hope they'll be useful to you, and maybe save you a couple of the pitfalls I've stumbled into.
