James [Maker]I have always loved Technical Drawing, Wood and Metal Work. My studies included Art & Design Foundation at Art College and a Degree in Industrial Design and Engineering.
I spent many years in Design Consultancy working in Product Styling, Interior Design and Advertising then moved into Special Visual Effects in London.
When computers became the 'thing' I joined Apple and the MultiMedia revolution for many, many years … but somewhere along the way I stopped ‘Making’ ... so I returned to the Dream and all has been good for a very, very long time ...
Adam [Maker]Thanks to my Dad's engineering background and his love of Tolkien I already had a passion for model making, computers and the worlds of dungeons and dragons.
I completed a diploma in general Art and Design specialising in ceramics and sculpting, then continued on to another diploma in art and design focusing more on Graphic Design and Fine Art.
Since then my career has been focused in the Design Industry helping to create Graphics and Packaging solutions for many major Brands worldwide.
