James Jordan

Self Employed

Tavistock, Ontario, Canada
I really enjoy working in a fast paced & innovative environment! i really enjoy thinking up new solutions and giving customers more than what they could ever expect!

I began my career in Manhattan where i worked for two of the top design studios in the world; Wallace Church and United Design. I then moved to Canada where I worked as a Design/Web Director for LAN MD Creative.
After two years of employment, I decided to start my own design firm, offering my clients anything from logos to full content management Web sites.

I still work for LAN MD Creative as an independent contractor, and also work at Worksite Ventures as the Lead web Developer.

I was raised in Tamworth, England UK. I was a very creative child, and that creative side grew into a career. I started MY design journey at Nuneaton College where I received a diploma in design. I also went to the one of the most prestigious universities in Europe, Blackpool and the Fylde College. It was there that I completed a three year design course and received a BA Honors Degree in Design.

I attribute my success to my parents’ constant inspiration and dedication to hard work. In my spare time, I enjoy sports and being competitive. I also enjoy long walks with my Sam and my Daughter Kiara, also visiting new places and playing lots of sports.
