"I've had the pleasure of working with Jim Sweas for over 10 years on a variety of projects, and some very demanding clients.

His focus, and attention to detail are beyond most client's expectations.

“I worked with Jim on an annual basis for about 5 years on a fund raising effort, both of us as volunteers for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lake County in the Chicagoland area. Jim handled all facets of our promotion from the artwork of the mailers to the newspaper and magazine ads, to the radio and TV advertisements. I interfaced with Jim almost on a daily basis over a 3 month span each year, mostly by phone. Jim was a delight to work with and a great listener. He provided his insight and expertise on all project aspects. I was always amazed at Jim's artistic abilities and how refreshing and point-on he was with what our committee was trying to achieve. Jim's quality of work exceeded our expectations and I highly recommend him.”

“I expected Jim to be a stereotypical designer… however, Jim's a thinker.
He took my simple and rudimentary sketches and returned with designs and ideas that far exceeded what I expected. I continue to work with Jim and will on future endeavors.”

“Jim Sweas Creative Services — creative is certainly the operative word. Service is also a great word to describe his ability to provide a client with even more than what they thought they needed.

I’ve worked with Jim on a number of projects. He always delivers first class concepts and first class results. He is so knowledgeable he is never boxed in. Being bright and intuitive is a great plus. Being so graphically talented adds the extra visual translation a client is seeking.”
