David James is the most gifted graphic designer I have worked with! From our first work together, he listened to me, understood what I was seeking to impact my potential clients, and depicted what I needed visually. He is a valuable thought partner for marketing and communications issues. David helps my business grow.

I’ve had an opportunity to work with Mr. James for a number of years under FEMWORKS. He has produced several wonderful pieces of marketing collateral for my firm in areas of Economic Development, Small Business, Education and Government. David is very creative and knowledgeable of his field and provides work that is clean and professional. When it comes to pushing past limits to beat deadlines, I’ve been able to count on him to produce the work needed even often times when we’ve needed a very quick turnaround time.”

After interviewing three potential artists, I selected the talented David James for my children’s book project.   He was the perfect choice to bring the story to life!  Professional, timely, creative are just a few of the words that come to mind when describing David.  His understanding of my concepts was intuitive and insightful.  It was a pleasure to work with David and I highly recommend him.

I lead a nonprofit in the city of Newark, and have been working with David for close to four years and could not be happier.  He’s not just a graphic designer, but a visioning partner, a thought leader… helping you bring your story to life.  We’ve hosted over 40 events in less than four years and David has produced all of our content, from fliers to event programs.  Usually I call David with very short notice and ask him if he could turn around the project.  Without hesitation he makes it happen and it’s always above and beyond what I’d envisioned. 

I’ve recommended him to the Urban League of Hudson County NJ (the largest in the nation) and countless other for-profit clients, all of whom are blown away at his professionalism and unmatched talent.  In 2017 I plan on offering him a retainer to ensure our spot in his growing client portfolio.  His quiet, confident spirit and enormous talent are second to none in my book!
