James White is a graphic designer from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. He is one of my favorite artists and inspired my own work a lot. Let me introduce him with his own words.
“I have been a creative person ever since I was old enough to hold a pencil at the age of 4. I started drawing on every scrap of paper I could find to the point where my mother couldn’t keep typewriter paper in the house without my finding and stealing it.
I never stopped drawing throughout school, and in 1995 I was accepted to the Graphic Design program at the Nova Scotia Community College in my hometown of Truro where I had formal training in all the basics of design: composition, aesthetics, form, function, typography and pre-press, all of which revolved around learning the best graphic software available, Adobe’s Photoshop and Illustrator. Upon graduation with honors, I was accepted into Interactive Technology also at the Nova Scotia Community College in 1997, where I learned to use my design skills to create websites, CDRoms, video production, 2D and 3D animation and programming.
Immediately after graduation in 1998 I was hired into the booming web industry. This was my first experience not only dealing with a team, but also working directly with clients on a project-to project basis. During my 11-year career I worked for a number of professional companies performing both web and print design, gaining experience through a wide variety of projects and clients, both large and small.”
