Creative Director

James Russell

Educated with a First Class Honours Degree in Graphic Design and Communication, James has over 20 years of experience in the creative industry.

With a background working in the creative team at the Daily Mail Group, James later relocated to Bristol where he began working more directly with corporate clients and account management.

After moving towards more freelance work including rebranding the National newspaper for Kenya (The Kenyan National) in 2003 and launching a magazine for high net worth individuals in Monaco, James moved to Leeds where he established a design agency that was partnered with a commercial print company (FDP Group) for 14 years.

In 2017 seeking a new challenge, James created ‘Believe’, a specialist, creative brand consultancy with the sole purpose of inspiring others to believe that anything is possible.

‘I wanted to create an agency that was dedicated to the end goal for a client and making the journey of getting there exciting.

Having consciously set out to do everything I’ve wanted to do in life so far, I believe that you can do anything you desire should you be 110% committed to it and you have the conviction to do so. I have created ‘Believe’ to demonstrate this is possible, not only to myself but for others, so we can commit our time to them and assist in achieving a dream.

Obviously I haven’t been able to do this on my own and it is with great humility and appreciation for the people around me that this has become a reality’.
