What has been missing from making corporate identity relevant to the management process is the understanding and interpreting of how corporate identity/brand identifier relates to the fundamental workings of the business. Identity is a corporate resource that may not always be fully utilized.


Business owners who recognize and utilize corporate identity as a key factor in competitive differentiation – and, thus, in a company’s overall business strategy – stand to gain a decided business advantage.


“Jim gets it. He looks at design as a tool to support message, brand, and corporate goals. His designs are crisp, focused and bottom-line conscious. That’s why I have worked with him for over 15 years.”

Rolf Fuessler



 “I had the pleasure to work for Jim at two different organizations - Fidelity Investments and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. Jim excelled both at creative and strategy — I learned much from him about branding and visual problem-solving earlier in my

career. Not only was he a great mentor,  but he was very personable and it was such a delight to  work with him.”

David Kearney

Graphic Design Professional

“Jim is a very professional, reliable, responsive, and creative designer. Jim goes above and beyond his graphic designing job ... he sees the project through from beginning to end -  helping with other vendors and helping meet last-minute deadlines. He is a solution-oriented designer and very in tune with branding ... he treats his clients and their

brand with the utmost respect. Jim’s technical grasp of the A/E/C industry is impressive and I highly recommend him for designing award submissions.”
