James White was born in 1977 and calls Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada his home. His parents were never able to keep typewriter paper in the house as James would steal it for drawings as early as the age of 4. Upon graduation of highschool he attended a Graphic Design course in his hometown where he was introduced to Photoshop and Illustrator, tools he still uses today. His professional design career began in 1998 where he cut his teeth designing websites and print campaigns.
James never stopped creating and working on his own projects that took up his evenings and weekends which resulted in the creation of Signalnoise Studio. James’ personal projects gained recognition in the industry and led him to working with Toyota, Universal Music, Nike, MTV, Google, Wired and many other clients.
Today James is focusing on the alternative art movie poster industry, creating some pieces to compliment his favorite films. He also spends a lot of time on the road speaking at various design conventions and events around the world.
In order to help and advise designers around the world, James hosts a weekly online show called the Signalnoise Broadcast, which is live every Thursday at 2pm EST.
