Jim is numero uno at mono, a Minneapolis hotshop (even for those parts) where he is rocking and rolling as their new CD. Well before Mono, He did a full circuit of that city's eye-popping advertising market, putting in four years at Fallon as an art director on tasty accounts like Timberland PRO, Citibank, International Trucks, and United Airlines. Jim then jumped over to Clarity Coverdale Fury creating powerful stuff for MADD, QUITPLAN (Minnesota's smoking cessation program) as well as helping score the Minnesota Tourism account. Next stop: OLSON, where he contributed to relaunching FIfth Third Bank's branding program. Awards? Plenty. A Cannes Lion, a One Show pencil, an International ANDY, multiple CA recognitions, Clios, and Obies. Even well before working at these great shops, Jim actually started here in our own backyard working for local legends George Pollack and Larry Norman.
Another feather in our cap getting Jim on the judging roster. It's rounding out to be a masterful group in our commitment to upping the ante on the ADCD show year after year.
