As a designer, he's frighteningly talented, generating stunning, on-strategy work from even the fuzziest of briefs. His works is never less than clear, strong, confident and nuanced. His sophisticated handling of type photography, illustration, video and digital bring intelligence and clarity of thought to all of his projects.
As a leader, Jim is positive, inspiring and totally committed. His designers would kill for him and the account people DO kill to work with him.
Finally, Jim is a true pleasure to work with. His quick wit, positive attitude and respect for every one of his colleagues lifts the room, the work and the agency.
Work with this guy.
His talent and love for design are unparalleled. He goes above and beyond to create the most beautiful, on-strategy, intelligent and crafted work. What seems to come so easy to him is the result of his child-like curiosity and restlessness combined with a profound understanding of design and crazy attention to detail. (I think.)
I've worked with Jim for 6.5 years and he is a vital part of why Velocity is the agency it is today. Not only because he's so freakishly talented or a great leader nourishing his team but also...well...because he's Jim. Witty, humble, caring, fun, prank-y and let's-not-take-each-other-too-seriously Jim.
Jim always wants to create the best work he – and his team – possibly can. Whatever it takes. You know he's got your back. And that's contagious. This is why everyone (EVERYONE!) wants to work with him. This is why I will always want to work with him.
