Endorsements by some with whom I've collaborated
“While with McCann-Erickson San Francisco, Brent was the Senior Designer and Art Director on the Hunter Douglas account, and the work that he produced on this account was well received by the client. Brent was also involved in helping redefine the culture of the agency during a transition phase and helped bring this redefinition to life. Brent is an experienced, knowledgeable and well-rounded individual who brings these attributes to any assignment on which he works. I am happy to endorse and recommend Brent Jones.” —Barrie Hedge, Former Chairman, McCann-Erickson, San Francisco
“As the Special Events and Travel Manager at the California Academy of Sciences, Brent was our contract designer for several years, designing for the Annual Academy Ball’s Invitations and other printed materials. He is experienced, innovative, skilled and a delight to work with.” —Deidre Kernan, Former Special Events & Travel Manager, California Academy of Sciences
“As a contractor and preferred vendor for the Monterey Bay Aquarium for many years, Brent’s role was to apply the established brand to create advertising, print and online assets, which was beneficial for the institution, as work overflows became burdensome on the in-house design team. His professionalism, experience and knowledge in the field of design communications and advertising are outstanding. I highly recommend Brent for his people skills and performing above and beyond the call of duty.” —Jim Ales / Studio 280, Former Art Director, Monterey Bay Aquarium, AIGA SF Fellow and former AIGA National Board of Directors Member.
“Brent’s extensive experience and broad array of creative and technical skills related to art direction, advertising, and design provide effective, high-impact, on-brand results to support your business’s marketing strategy. If you’re wanting capable creative assistance requiring little direction from start to successful completion, I would highly recommend Brent Jones’ design services.” —Carmen Gage Ackert, Previous Creative Director-HomeWorks/KitchenWorks and Owner of Commission Arts
“I worked directly with Brent for more than 7 years, and while our organization does not allow for business references, working with Brent was great and am happy to recommend his work and performance personally. He is a complete professional from working on small to large projects, he was always willing to do whatever was asked and even learn new techniques or processes without hesitation. Brent’s abilities far exceeded that of a contractor. He excells at learning a project, recommending new (and often unthought of ways) to get to the final project. He is great at proofing and the fine details and I never had to worry about whether a job would be done on time as he always had my back. Brent was a loyal and respected member of the team and a joy to work with.” —Sharon Coggin, Marketing Manager for a large, internationally recognized nonprofit
“When I worked at San Francisco Opera, we employed Brent as a freelance graphic designer on an ongoing basis and were delighted to hire him time after time. Brent is creative, responsive, and excited to solve problems from creating evocative designs, through to production and delivery. No detail is too small for his attention. Brent is also a lot of fun to work with – dependable, easy-going, lighthearted, and full of integrity. Everyone in our office enjoyed working with Brent. I envy anyone who is in a position to hire him. ” —Mary Elizabeth Simpson, Philanthropy Research Manager, Wild Earth Allies
