What makes us stand out? How can we bring our brand to life? Should we be bold or subtle? Can we get away with just a logo or do we need a full blown brand? And can we do it ourselves or should we hire a branding specialist?


Hello. I’m James Beveridge, an independent creative and branding specialist. For the past 30 years, I’ve been responsible for building successful brands for everyone from enthusiastic start-ups to seasoned global conglomerates. At agencies such as The Partners, Brownjohn, Further, Fishburn and Fleishman Hillard, I’ve led the creative transformation for hundreds of businesses. Now, I want to work with you.




Think big.
Start small.

It’s a simple philosophy but the results are remarkable. Big ideas are a powerful way to transform brands. They engage consumers, spark curiosity and provide a reinvigorated sense of purpose. But big ideas start small. That’s why we focus on every tiny detail of your brand, using our specialist methodology with your team to deliver unrivalled results. Contact me today to find out how we can build your brand.

I have worked with James for over 20 years as both client and partner. In all that time I have never known a creative person with such an uncanny ability to transform a strategic direction into a business-building idea. James doesn’t judge his ideas on the awards they win, but on their performance in the marketplace. That’s why clients love him!
— Sean Moore, Senior Partner, Cambridge Strategy Centre, Cambridge

Simply put James is the best creative director I have had the pleasure working with. It’s rare to find a creative director who ticks all the boxes - brilliant ideas; great delivery; and the ability to build teams. I’ve witnessed first hand James’ amazing ability to attract and motivate designers and create a culture that drives performance and nurtures young talent. And always with a smile on his face. A true leader in his field.
— Patrick Eastwood, Partner, MerchantCantos, Hong Kong

James is a truly inspiring leader, I worked with him for over 5 years and learned so much from him. His ability to get the best out of his team, how he can take a nugget of an idea and turn it into gold and most of all his infectious positivity and good humour. He makes work fun and is passionate about design. I can’t wait to see what creative spark he ignites next!
— Emily Picot, Senior Brand Designer, Auckland

James is one of the most inspiring, enthusiastic, creative and optimistic people I’ve ever worked for and with.
