With a background in Fine Arts, James has recently graduated with first class honours from Industrial design, at RMIT. James' studies also include a semester abroad in The Netherlands, at the Technical University of Eindhoven.
James' passions lie within object design, especially those that demonstrate a narrative and interaction of the hand-made. Equally to the outcome, James values the unique process that is explored within each project, and considers each exploration a chance to learn something new.
