James Reed's picture


I am a multi disciplined illustrator and designer living and working in Cardiff, South Wales, UK. My work is easily recognisable by its bold outlines and bright colours. The subjects reflecting my passion for alternative pop culture and clean, bold design. With a background in animation and fine art curation I use both hand drawn and digital processes to produce bold and clean illustrations for print and web.

As early as I can remember I loved to draw. I’d spend hours copying art from computer games and skateboarding magazines creating my own characters and designs. Music, film, comics, animation and computer games introduced me to alternative art and pop culture which continues to influence my work today.

For many years I have honed my skills creating my own personal artworks as well as providing a range of graphic design and illustration solutions for bands, businesses and organisations. Delivering full cycle design from initial concept through to final production I offer a wide range of bespoke services including logo design, branding, illustration, typography, posters, flyers, brochures and printed vinyl graphics. Current and past clients include SSE Arena - Wembley, Urban Outfitters, Tiger Bay Brawlers, Brotherhood Clothing, The Full Moon Bar (Cardiff), Punk Rock Bowling UK and Seventyseven Clothing.

My love and enthusiasm for illustration and design is evident in my personality and my work. I am more than happy to discuss projects and commission requirements. If you are interested in working with me please get in touch.
