After graduating from The School of Visual Arts in 1980 John was hired by Benton & Bowles, a large consumer packaged goods advertising agency as an assistant art director. In less than a year John was promoted to a full art director working on multi-million dollar accounts and was recognized with several industry awards. Twenty plus years and a few agencies and projects along the way John created JSM Concepts.
John's professional strengths are strategic and creative consulting, art direction, and graphic design. However, because of John's broad experience, he is familiar with many qualified people who specialize in many areas of marketing and work on occasion with JSM Concepts Inc. Just ask John and he will gladly introduce you because helping your business grow is what is important.
Even John likes a change of scenery now and then but with the understanding that he has other clients and projects that are ongoing. On occasion he may need to schedule meetings or conference calls with his clients during the workday on location.
Yes and yes.
There are different rates depending on the services performed and John will gladly supply you with a rate sheet upon request. However, no two assignments are alike so, the best thing to do if you want to know what your project will cost is to contact John to discuss it. JSM Concepts' fees are competitive and at JSM Concepts we find ways to work with your budget.
JSM Concepts provides an agreement with terms for each project. With all new accounts, a deposit is required before work will start and the balance is due at the completion of each project. JSM Concepts accepts credit cards.
Assignments are for the most part on a first-come, first-serve basis. JSM Concepts understands that emergencies do happen from time to time and will try to be flexible in meeting your deadline. Additional charges may be incurred for rush services.
Under normal conditions, concepts and designs take ten-to-fifteen business days; revisions two-to-five business days and mechanicals one-to-three business days. If it is an emergency and scheduling will allow, JSM Concepts can do it in less time, but please remember that if a client needs to be bumped to meet your emergency you will incur rush charges.
