Hi, I'm James Chow

and welcome to my portfolio. I was born in Hong Kong and moved to Edinburgh in 2012 for the benefit of our children and we are loving it here.

I've been designing and interested in design since I was young. I had been taking photos since I was little and wanted to draw or do something arty when I grew up. I got my wish and more as the creative world is so vast with the array of tools especially the new technology that is constantly coming out.

Let me help you shape your idea.

Design Process

Harmony between form and functionality is extremely important to me and this is how we approach a design.
The designs are critiqued by client and our panel.

Wireframe process

We develop wireframes which are rough line drawings that detail general layout and strategy for each template of your site. Each template wireframe will be based on strategic layouts and ensure maximum opportunity for customer acquisition.

System, content and strategy Consultancy

We offer a consultancy stage, in the form of documents and workshops, which ensures we can define exactly what you want and how we will achieve this.

Trust Points

Your business and site needs credibility and high ratings in order to be successful and so you need to demonstrate reasons for the user to trust you and your site. We can achieve this by working with you to identify and promote testimonials, awards and accreditations, clients and key facts. We can use social media or traditional methods.

Calls to Action

Your website needs to have a call to action - the response you want from your viewers. We can help encourage users to act. We will work with you to develop clear messaging and ensure the design delivers these messages with impact.
