About Me

Hi, I’m James Donaldson, and I’m from Cape Town.

I’ve designed, produced and updated a true variety of commercial animated, web and other multimedia content and experiences for over 13 years.

Creating thoughtful, enjoyable multimedia experiences with innovative technology has been my lifelong passion. My trip through life has led me through experiential design agencies, a gaming company, and freelance projects. I often work in conjunction with a private network of talented individuals and businesses, and play an active role in collaborative web and animation projects for larger companies and organisations.

Design

I offer a range of design and asset creation services, implementing user insights and fast-prototyping practices to explore user journeys. I begin with brainstorms and create blueprints before eventually polishing final artwork to deliver on-target, brand consistent creations in print or digital formats.

Web

Beautiful websites to match your budget and requirements can modernise your services and create an interactive gateway to a global audience. Whether you’re seeking a single-pager, a comprehensive CMS, an ecommerce solution or a Progressive Web App, I can assist in planning and constructing a viable solution.

Motion

Animation is a potent tool for delivering impactful, complex messages. I create explainers, logo and title sequences, promotional videos and realtime visualisations. Breath life into your ideas or stories while effectively communicating them to an audience through the power of motion.

Beautiful solutions to challenging problems

Digitality is used to mean the condition of living in a digital culture, derived from Nicholas Negroponte's book Being Digital in analogy with modernity and post-modernity. Aspects of digitality include near continuous contact with other people through cellphones, near instantaneous look up of information through the World Wide Web, the third wave information storage where any fragment in a text can be searched and used for categorization, such as through search engine Google, and communicating through weblogs and email...

While in the tradition of Postmodernism in that they presume a decisive role for media in the formation of personality, culture and social order, they differ fundamentally from the analog critical theory, in that the audience has the ability to do more than create a personal idiolectic text, but instead is able to create new texts which reinforce the behavior of other participants.
