“I have had the pleasure of working with Jim Ladner for many years on many projects. He has proven himself to be a thoughtful and talented Senior Art Director. Jim is a pro when it comes to flawless execution. He’s extremely knowledgeable in production and is no stranger to being creative within the constraints of tight budgets and timetables. Best of all, he’s a hard worker and a team player who always leaves his ego at the door. I recommend Jim highly.”

“We had an enormous amount of creative work going through my company at the time Jim was there, plus we were growing fast, so we were frequently shorthanded. The true value of Jim in that situation actually went beyond the routinely excellent quality of his work. What it came down to was that I simply didn’t have the time to handhold and guide everybody through their work, and with Jim it simply wasn’t necessary. He intuitively–and intellectually–understood the work that had to be done, much of which was extremely demanding. Once it was in Jim’s hands, I knew it was in good hands, and I just didn’t have to worry about it anymore. And I was not an easy person to work for. It was a pleasure having Jim on my staff, and his great creative sensibility continually kept me surprised with the unexpected. Guys like this are hard to find. Here’s one of the few.”
