Since 1992, Jim’s articles have appeared in most of the British national broadsheets, including the Guardian, FT, Independent and Daily Telegraph, as well as mainstream magazines like GQ and the Sunday Times.
He’s written on subjects as diverse as fashion, pop music, computer games, interiors and new media, but has tended to concentrate on design and the visual arts, bringing now-familiar names like David Carson, the Designers Republic and Ross Lovegrove to a broader audience. At one point, he wrote a regular column on advertising for the Guardian.
Jim has also contributed to many international design magazines and journals. From Domus in Italy, IDEA in Japan and Print and Ray Gun magazines in the US, to titles in Holland, France and Iceland. In the UK, he has written articles for, among others, Eye, Graphics International, Design Week, Baseline, Design, Creative Technology and Circular. And has interviewed and profiled many leading creative types, including Gert Dumbar, Neville Brody, Richard Seymour, David Carson and Annie Leibovitz.
For several years, Jim wrote a monthly Private View for Design Week. When the magazine closed in July 2011, he was tantalisingly two short of his 100th column.
