For over 20 years in the digital creative industry I’ve worked in various roles, from creating educational software, building apps to design and development for advertising. Now I specialise in product design.


Human centred design

My role is to be the user’s voice, to create the best possible experience for them whilst maintaining balance with business objectives.

UX workflow and activities

Running user research, workshops, requirements gathering, ideation, prototyping, wireframes, visual design, information architecture and testing.


Writing screeners, guides, then conducting moderated and un-moderated testing. Synthesising and presenting findings to stakeholders and the product team.

Responsive design

Designing for all display sizes, with a focus on the right interface for each device, whilst ultimately making it usable and accessible.

Prototyping & Interaction design

I am skilled in crafting hi-fidelity prototypes using Figma, Protopie, InVision and Sketch. These are invaluable for stakeholders and user testing.

Visual design

I currently use Figma. I have great attention to detail and understanding of design systems, with experience delivering accessibility compliance.


I succeed in improving products through iterative process. I participate in digital workflows in an Agile environment, using tools like Trello, Confluence and Jira.



James joined the Experience Design team at Tribal to help on a project. He immediately proved to be an exceptional addition to the team, owning the project from research through to build, leading the project team towards an impressive solution for the client.
James is a critical thinker with a wealth of industry experience and knowledge which he was always willing to share with the wider team. His reliability, passion and dedication to his craft is hard to find and I look forward to working with him again in the future.

James Gilbert gets “it”. He understands that we work in a service based industry, engaged to deliver interactive solutions that help sell products, to inform and educate, and above all else, that the clients’ needs come first.
No matter the project, James never loses sight of the key objective and maintains the up most professionalism.
He is a pleasure to work with and a great contributor too. I highly recommend James for any interactive project no matter how big or how small, because he not only delivers the results, he makes the process to get there so easy.

John Holding

Executive Producer at AI Digital

James is one of those guys who is an absolute pleasure to have on your team.
James understands that communication is paramount to defining projects and achieving objectives – and this is where he excels.
Combine all his knowledge, experience and approachability with a slightly wicked sense of humour and you’ve almost go the perfect package – someone who gets the job done thoroughly with a minimum of fuss… and actually allows you to enjoy the process!
