Hi, I'm James Chow

Welcome to my portfolio. I was born in Hong Kong and moved to Edinburgh in 2011 with my family and we are loving it here.

Since I was young, I wanted to draw or do something arty. I got my wish and more as the creative world is so vast with a huge array of tools and new technology constantly coming out.

Once I became a dad another door of opportunities opened up with Edinburgh Chinese School and Sciennes Primary School that I volunteer my skills.

I've also enjoyed taking photos since I was a kid and now teach children photography part-time.

Let me help you shape your idea.

Works well, looks great

Harmony between form and functionality is extremely important to me in all design. Many clients have a clear view of one or the other and I see a huge part of my role as helping them to explore the needs of both for a perfect balance.

Sketching is out

Some people know they want a website or printed materials but have limited experience in such development so I work with them to develop rough sketch for layout and strategy, asking questions along the way to understand what would work best for their ambitions – whether it be to keep or attract new customers, provide information or showcase their work. This is not only essential before any work begins but a fun and exciting time of sketching out the development of endless options before refining down to what works best.

A call to action

From my experience, the websites which have the highest views are the ones with a clear call to action. The design process works best when you know what response you want from your viewers. What do you want them to click on/share/view? I will work with you to develop clear messaging and ensure the design delivers your message with impact.

Credibility & Trust

Your website is a key opportunity for you to showcase your credibility and develop Trust in your audience/customers. It is also a place for the opposite where a poor review can snowball into damaging publicity for your business. As part of the service I provide, I will monitor reviews, check ratings and discuss with you how to maximise positive testimonials and respond to the harshest critics. I can also work with you to build trust by displaying awards and accreditations, highlighting useful fact, quotes and photographs – linking to social media where possible to broaden your reach.
