Bringing your vision into focus.

James Robert Creative helps your business get visible results by creating marketing and graphic design with visual impact. I tell your story through unique, well-thought out solutions that are timeless and memorable.
Service Description
The most important part of my process is to understand your business. I listen to your needs and act as a trusted partner to bring your vision to life. I start with the concept stage, and can provide 3-5 concepts, on average, tailored to your brief. If you like one of the directions, I will then continue to revise this until it has reached perfection. I will work directly with you at every stage, no middleman! Final files are delivered in several formats as you require. Attention to detail, competitive rates and no-hassle quality service assure that your company will get a rewarding experience.

Art Director
2000 - 2008
Proven track record with over 8 years of graphic design experience serving as Art Director managing a busy deadline-driven publication design department catering to the Connecticut legal and business community. Designed numerous reader-friendly publications, marketing pieces, in-story graphics and logos which received praise from both our readership and my direct supervisors, resulting in several bonus compensation rewards. I was also recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists in 2007 with an award for Page 1 layout design. A highly organized manager, I have coordinated multiple projects on a weekly basis, interfacing directly with print providers, photographers and our overall management team. I worked closely with our site designer, using Adobe GoLive to build content pages for our advertising special section and calendar pages. I have also developed several banner ads using Illustrator and Flash, and am currently building a personal site using Dreamweaver.
Payment Terms
I generally prefer the Escrow system. The end of the first stage is after first concept sketches have been submitted, and after that, subsequent rounds each represent a new stage in the process. I am flexible to work with clients on how these stages are decided.
