The Sunday Times

Prior to setting up Studio Hunter, James was an art director at The Sunday Times, working with an award-winning team of over twenty designers. He later collaborated with Esterson Associates and Mark Porter Associates to redesign the newspaper, which was honoured with an Award for Excellence by the Society for News Design.


On the death of the greatest boxer of all time, we wrapped the main news section of The Sunday Times in a four-page picture special. This edition saw a big increase in the paper’s sales, and was featured on television at the top of Andrew Marr’s newspaper review. The front page was nominated for Front Page of the Year at the British Press Awards, and won an Award of Excellence from the Society for News Design.

Feature pages

The design of the paper’s broadsheet feature pages presented opportunities each week to blow up big condensed grotesk type, dynamically crop pictures and commission exciting illustrators.
