James J Grady
James Grady is a proud native of "Little Rhody" but has lived in Boston for over thirteen years. After spending eleven years at kor group, a leading strategic branding and design firm as a designer, senior designer, and associate, James decided to take a big risk and return to school. He earned his MFA in Graphic Design from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2012. During that time he discovered Fathom and became their oldest intern to date. James continued to work with Fathom while completing his thesis and joined the studio full-time shortly after graduation. Prior to RISD, he received a BFA in Digital Media from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth.
It was James's unending curiosity and pursuit of creativity that drove him back to school and eventually to Fathom, where he takes pride in designing innovative experiences and systems. His work includes interactive and static visualizations as well as animation and video editing; he also supports the front-end engineering of various projects.
His work is diverse in medium as well as industry and has collaborated with many consumer, corporate, educational, healthcare, and nonprofit clients. James's work has been recognized by AIGA, CASE, Graphis, HOW, and Print.
James enjoys boasting about his daily Nike Fuel points after he walks two blocks for lunch. When he's not at work, he's happiest spending time with his wife Christina, their daughter Joy, and a new addition due in March 2013.
