our story

j-me is a global product design company, that has become known for producing original home products that have a sense of humour and a love of design. located in the creative hub of london's oxo tower, j-me has a unique ethos that results in a range of functional products that are original and fun.

j-me was founded by brothers jamie and mark in 2000 with a desire to create original and entertaining products for the design conscious home owner.

with both jamie & mark’s passion for design (they studied at central saint martins - the world leading centre for art and design education) and entrepreneurial spirit, the brothers launched j-me original design, in their late twenties.

with humble beginnings, they started the company whilst living together at their parents’ home in north london. mum’s lounge was often transformed into a picking and packing operation.

j-me awards

however, by 2007 j-me had not only won 2 coveted design awards, but had also successfully exported the brand globally and moved into a prestigious new design studio in the design capital of the world.

j-me’s core values are as clear now as when they first started out and are what make the products unique. all products are 100% original design, always with a twist of humour and focus on superior function and high quality.

“we look at everyday tasks and create solutions which provide a smile on the face of the user, whether it’s a toothbrush holder or a complete shoe rack
“we pride ourselves on the fact that we design original ideas. we spend a great deal of time generating fun, emotive yet functional products that solve everyday problems.”

the process

every j-me product goes through a crazy meticulous process, which involves the whole team and ensures the core values are ingrained into each one. it can take between eight and eighteen months (yes really!) to finish a new product.
j-me only ever launches products that they are all proud of and passionate about.
j-me is now available in over 30 countries.
