Chimera Creations was established in the summer of 2005 and is the trading name of me - freelance designer, illustrator, musician and sound designer - Steven James.
Creative from an early age it was obvious that I would follow some form of artistic path through life. A big interest in art and design at school was nurtured on through further education and eventually studies in graphic design at college level.
A diverse career followed after graduation and for the next ten years I worked in all manner of media including design for print, 3D modelling and animation, technical authoring, multimedia applications, publishing, music production and sound design. I enjoyed varied employment - from writing educational materials to composing the soundtrack for a computer game!
Shortly after moving to the north-east coast of Scotland I decided to go solo and set up my own freelance business - and Chimera Creations was born. Taking inspiration from the many forms of work experienced thus far, not to mention my interest in all things creative, the name and logo were chosen to reflect this.
In fifteen years of business Chimera Creations has allowed me to work on a wide variety of projects - including a high volume of book layouts and cover designs, large animation projects for some major clients, and a whole host of other creative collaborations.
At the beginning of 2013 I re-located to the county of Suffolk and began offering the services of Chimera Creations to clients both here and further afield . . .
