James Cartwright

United Kingdom

British writer, editor, and art director James Cartwright is a contributor to The Observer, Riposte, and Eye on Design, among other publications, and has created copy for the V&A, the Imperial War Museum, Nordic Approach, Moleskine and WeFolk. He’s also a regular on WePresent, contributing features and commissioning illustrations that light up our platform. As part of WePresent’s 2021 Ideas Report—which found that a surprising number of clients and creatives surveyed downplayed the other’s role in creative work—James wrote a treatise in defense of collaboration, respect, honesty, and humility in the creative process.

I propose we ditch our egos and thank everyone who has helped us to make work that we’re proud of, whichever side of the client/creative divide we’re on.
