“James Kurtz was the driving force behind the creative and graphical design of a recent, very successful ad campaign. He truly listened to what I was looking for and what I needed the ad to express. He took what was in my imagination and only after a brief meeting was able to organize it and develop it into a cohesive and effective layout. His work is professional and timely. James provided creative design while respecting our current brand. He has on-the-spot creativity and the deep technical knowledge that can positively affect any company’s image.”
Jason M Long
“Sometimes I wonder what I will end up with when committing to a designer. There are horror stories! Until now! I found James Kurtz. Everything you said you would do, you did… only better. The whole process, from planning to placing, to producing, was nearly flawless.
To anyone deciding whether to try you… proceed with confidence.
Thank you for completing my project creatively, professionally, and promptly, and for an overall positive experience.”
“Jim is instrumental in the graphic production and implementation of our clients websites. Without Jim our sites would look like a 3rd grader put it together with Microsoft Paint. We will always continue to utilize Jim for our graphic design.”
James is enthusiastic, friendly and fast! He manages multiple projects with ease and helps distill direction from different managers into a cohesive product that gets the point across with style–then delivers on time.
