My name is Jamie Durrant and I’m a bit of a geek. This website serves as a showcase of all the work I have done inside and outside of the games industry in the past few years.

Short Biography; I was born in Norwich, Norfolk in the UK. I had my first taste of computing age 10, with the Sinclair ZX81. After a few too many wobbly ram packs, I moved through a variety of increasingly powerful computers until I got hooked on Prestel (a precursor to the Internet) where I started to design graphics for various groups.

I was also heavily into special effects (make-up and sculpture), perhaps due to a great uncle who was a magician. It was not unusual to find me covered in bruises and scars of my own making. (I have very supportive parents).

Leaving school I went to Norwich School of Art & Design where I was taught the benefits of sitting for hours in a darkened classroom writing essays on past masters.

In the early 90’s, I left Norwich for the golden paved streets of London where I took on a wide variety of jobs. I eventually settled in leafy Guildford, Surrey working for a newly created company called Lionhead Studios. In 2006 we were brought under the wing of Microsoft. In 2009, I left Microsoft to freelance and start up my own company creating unusual artifacts, The Strange Case Company.

Whilst I still sculpt when the urge takes me (or counting down the days to Halloween), I am mostly doing graphic designery type things. Most of which you can see on my blog.
