Get to know me.

1. What do you do at Coast?

Well, I do a lot at Coast. I am the Lead website/UI designer, so I design many of the websites Coast creates. I am also Coast’s SEO specialist, so I help businesses gain visibility in their industry utilising search engines. I am also a front-end website developer and I’ve built many websites for Coast over the years.

2. What is your favourite thing about working at Coast?

The coffee and memes are pretty good, haha. The amazing people I have worked with for many years and the wide variety of projects I get to work on every day.

3. How are you creative or innovative in your role at Coast?

Well, being a website designer, I get to create the look and feel of a website for many different businesses and industries. So I am always having to think of new ways to present information to a user and keep it looking fresh.

4. Describe the vibe at Coast and why you chose to work there

Stressful, passionate and creative, it’s a weird mix, but we love it. I work here for the wide variety of projects I get to work on, as well as the creative passionate young individuals that work here. As they say, variety is the spice of life. ❤

5. What unique flavour do you bring to the team?

Chocolate… Honestly, it’s probably my dry humour.

6. If you were a character from a famous film or book, who would you be and why?

I don’t really watch films or read books, I am more of a youtube / Netflix series kind of guy. So this is a hard one to answer, so maybe Chewbacca out of Star Wars, because no one really understands the technical jargon I constantly speak, haha

7. What is your fav piece of clothing?

Chinos and a hoodie

8. What is your vice when faced with a challenge?

Probably my perfectionism. I am always trying to make sure everything is perfect, so I will spend more time than I should perfecting my solution to a problem.

9. What would your proud Mum say about you?

I actually have no idea, so I asked her to find out, she said “James is very creative and obsessive. So he will be obsessed with creating the best website possible 😜”, so there you go.
