Jim is our Design Manager and has overall responsibility for leading the in-house design team and ensuring that digital products and services deliver a valuable and accessible experience for users. He also collaborates closely with the marketing team, helping to manage and develop the PDMS brand.
Having joined in 2005 from a design and publishing background, he has worked on hundreds of projects, gaining extensive skills and understanding of the many disciplines required. Equally at home with graphic design, digital marketing, copywriting, front-end web development and analytics, Jim facilitates collaboration between designers, developers, content creators and analysts, responding to user feedback to continuously improve what we do.
With an Art & Design degree from the University of Plymouth, Jim also has a number of professional certifications and has recently completed a Design Leadership and Innovation course at the Technical University Delft via remote learning. Outside of work, Jim is dad to three girls, has three cats and occasionally dabbles in art and music.
We are proud to have worked with the team at the Isle of Man Curraghs Wildlife Park on a new website. The new site has been designed and built by PDMS and is powered by Umbraco technologies for the content management system.
