Nation & James was founded in 2018 by Justin James & Miles Nation.

Building off the success of BIGGER. an events and brand activation agency that has partnered with global brands for over a decade.

It was the natural expansion of creative solutions we were already delivering. Our business has developed to create solutions for large, medium sized and challenger clients who are in need of fresh ideas or a brand new identity built from the ground up.

We are an agile team of multidisciplinary thinkers and doers who aim to forge long standing relationships built on trust from delivering great work.

Our approach

Make it simple.

Make me care.

Make it Simple: Simple is clear. Simple is direct. Simple is honest. Whether the goal is to create a new experience for your website visitors through to stripping the brand back to clearly communicate who you are and what you do that is different, the simple truth is that making things simple can be hard. But are they still worth doing? Absolutely!

Make me care: The science is in. Rationality is not what guides people. We are essentially impulsive, and it is emotive triggers that drive our behaviour. Providing a quality product or service is a given, but not enough. Your audience wants to believe you share their values. You must ‘get’ the way of life they subscribe to. Everyone’s looking to find their tribe.

If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.

Albert Einstein
You can say the right things and nobody will listen. You’ve got to say it in such a way that people feel it. Because if they don’t feel it, nothing will happen.
