Award-winning full service ecommerce agency Metakinetic has expanded its team again. The Berkshire-based ecommerce experts have welcomed a new Senior Graphic Designer to their flourishing in-house design team following a recent rise in client demand for design-based projects. The company has invested heavily in its team of specialists since the start of the year, with 6 new members joining Metakinetic in the past 7 months as part of the company’s ongoing expansion plans.

James Ktoris joins Metakinetic’s team of 20 specialists as the new Senior Graphic Designer. A design graduate from Bournemouth University, James’ interest in the digital space has lead to success in web roles with ING Direct, Barclays and Yell, with a focus on designing for web and mobile, along with online advertising and email newsletters. Whilst managing the internal design studio at ING Direct, James was responsbile for expanding the design team to cover print and web, as well as orchestrating multiple campaigns and rebrands.

Smarter ecommerce design is fast becoming a priority for online retailers, and James’ expertise will improve the quality of design work Metakinetic can offer its clients. The company’s in-house creative services continue to be well sought-after, with a recent increase in demand for design-based projects, and several new clients including Daily Mail Shop, Fairway Furniture, WTS Broadcast and award-winning online retailers Hingstons. James is eager to begin his new role at Metakinetic, and said “I look forward to focusing on the exciting design projects Metakinetic has lined up and supporting the continual growth of the design team. I can’t wait to get started!”

Darren Bull, Director of Metakinetic, commented ‘We are delighted to welcome James to our team. Our creative services are a vital part of our business, and our clients continue to be impressed by our high standards of innovative and effective web design. We were impressed by the high quality of work James is able to produce, and he brings with him valuable experience that we hope will improve the way we work with our clients. We have invested heavily in our people this year to allow us to develop a more flexible service offering to meet the demand for highly specialist knowledge in our design and digital marketing teams. With James on board we are positive that our design team will continue to go from strength to strength.”
