James Kingman

Creative Director at Feed Communications
London, United Kingdom

Summary

I am an enthusiastic, ideas-driven Creative professional who has worked in a few sectors over the past decade; from Branding, Experiential, ATL, BTL, Social and Digital - with a focus on art/creative direction and design.
I like to solve problems by calling upon my experience across those different sectors, allowing flexibility in insight or idea, then supporting it with a solid rationale that has meaning and purpose.
