James Lewis

A graphic designer since birth, I cut-up and redesigned my mother’s Chatelaines at the age of 8, often before she read them. After winning scholarships through art, I went on to formal design training at Emily Carr College of Art and Design and Kwantlen Technical College in Vancouver, BC. and then designed for trade publications and the film industry there for a number of years. In 2002, I moved to St. John's, Newfoundland, the eastern edge of the continent.

I formed Wreckhouse Creative in 2004 to do a variety of jobs with a distinct focus on brand design. I have developed brands in the areas of travel and tourism, agriculture, aquaculture, pharmaceuticals, geology and history. My work has involved everything from illustration, advertising design, tradeshow display design, publication design, web design and storyboarding.

In 2017 I bought an Ipad Pro which I use almost exclusively for design now. I still design with a pencil, just a different type.
