About - Traveler James - James McDonough - Writer, Digital Strategist, Senior Designer, Art Director

7+ years of solving business communication challenges, managing long-term milestones, and developing new market areas for startups and established firms.


As an AD with agency experience, a digital marketing background, and a creative writing diploma from the University of Oxford, I provide clients with insights to improve their campaigns, UX/UI, and online presence.

In 2010-2012, I managed the migration of the first ever digital Living Archive to integrate with Stanford University Libraries' Special Collections. Read on NYTimes »

I am passionate about elevating conversations to produce elegant digital footprints and experiences.


From concepting to production, I've done it all - with the purpose of aligning design and digital strategies to the business strategy.

An empathy-driven and ego-less marketing approach can dissolve a lot of misgivings and cultural missteps along the path in product design.

My project landmarks include award-winning advertising campaigns, massive eCommerce catalogues, and thousands of commercial images for clients such as Nestlé, Tetra Pak, Stanford University, Redfin, Seagrams, Miller, and Burns & McDonnell. See CV »
