Blimp Creative was established in 2012 by designer and illustrator James Fenton, building up a loyal international client base including the likes of Qualcomm, Bravi Software, Globosense and the University of Cambridge. Working across all stages of the creative process: from comps and prototypes; illustration and photography,to UI and front-end code, James' experience, both in-house and agency side, allows for a flexible and collaborative relationship with clients and associates.
Since graduating from UWE in 2001, James has worked with a huge variety of clients from large brands such as John Lewis, Ford and Sainsbury's, to working with musicians such as Massive Attack and Kit Rocket. He has also presented at events such as the Cambridge UPA and Future of Web Design, as well as contributing articles to the likes of DotNet Mag and Creative Bloq.
Having worked in Bristol, Cambridge and London, he is now based out of his home studio in sunny Suffolk, where he lives with his German-born wife, filling his spare time getting his hands dirty in their garden or making a mess in his screen printing studio.
