He trained as a product designer, quickly became absorbed in the possibilities of the internet and interactive media, and has been a key member of our web development team for many years. Hamilton brings together an understanding of design, technology and brands which makes him a thoroughly useful chap.

An inventor at heart, Hamilton is also a director of NPD Toys, a family business that conceives and designs games for many of the world's biggest toy companies.

Alongside his brand identity work, Jamie's experience includes design for print, screen and the built environment. He's a core part of our Yorkshire team as we set out to work with some of the North's many thriving brands.
