If you’ve worked with atomix for a while, then Jamie will likely be a familiar face to you. Here right from the start, he’s got his finger in all the pies. With some great blogs about creative process coming up, we think it’s time you got to know our multi award-winning creative director a little better!
It was a sign of things to come when Jamie combined a love of art and design in year 12 with his interest in computers. That’s an ideal recipe to bake a digital designer. After running a successful online store for 5 years, he joined Josh, who wanted to expand his digital signage and website business, atomix.
The majority of Jamie’s time now is spent designing and overseeing the creative part of projects, including the UX brainstorming, wireframes, and most of the creative layouts. He’s also involved with quality assurance, to make sure all our completed work is looking great and functioning perfectly. A little unusually for a designer, he’s even still involved with the development process. Understanding the mechanics of development while designing helps our creative process to be a smooth system.
As a footy fan, some of his favourite projects include The Sydney Swans and Port Adelaide. There’s nothing like being able to make something new and ground-breaking and Jamie’s focus on conversion mixed with cool graphics meant that the Sydney Swans website stood out in a sea of Australian sports sameness. You can see some of his projects on his Behance page.
His favourite quote: “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you can sell him fishing gear”
When his head isn’t buried in work with the headphones on, he likes to help organise the team’s games on a Friday night. He organised our recent paper plane competition (unfortunately failing to rank in the top positions) and makes sure we all get soundly beaten on the pool table on a Friday night.
Despite the competitive streak, he’s also probably one of the most maternal members of the team, helping to shape our work culture and being the person that people come to when they have a problem. He’s also Dad to the office’s cutest little visitor, baby Harris!
