2017


Jim works with clients to drive growth and innovation through design, challenging conventions across mediums and platforms. With a background in publishing, business, and design, Jim partners with clients to define their business agenda, develop deep brand strategy, and lead the realization of that strategy through design.

Jim has co-founded startups, written visionary brand stories for global corporations, designed deep systems at Code and Theory, and led executive-level transformation agendas at SYPartners. Entrepreneurial and strategic, Jim asks key questions to unearth insights, cut through noise, and develop responsive systems that are experiential and intentional.

Micro-Utopias

Almost half of the world's population is on the Internet, almost 10 billion devices are connected, and more than half a billion mobile devices and connections were added last year. Billions of people are colliding, exchanging, creating in real-time, overnight ideas are formed, micro-communities are made, and the world changes.

So what is the role of the internet in the creation of our futures? Are the micro-communities we form, actually micro-utopias? And in an interface-first world, how do brands deliver value in the moments that matter to a micro-utopian world?

Form& designed an audiovisual experience for IAM that explores the speed, manner, and ephemerality at which micro-utopias form, coalesce, disperse, and form again.
