And, at the risk of this page being copy-heavy, here are 5 reasons why I started James Junk.

① People let their fear of failure stop them from experimenting;
② Design isn’t as inclusive and playful as it could be;
③ There are infinite good, fun ideas that deserve consummation;
④ We need to design a world that reflects the world we want to live in;
⑤ I was under lockdown languish lunacy.

You and I may be a match if 🫱🏽‍🫲🏾 you care about more than the pixels on the design — are ready to invest effort upfront to save time later — have a fun brain and even funner ideas. Let’s go 📠.
