Hi! I’m Jim and I’ve been working at ToTheWeb for 13 years.
A highlight of my professional career was receiving five Emmy awards in recognition of award-winning broadcast design, animation design and corporate image development. I was Senior Director of Visual Design for NBCi Internet portal. Prior to joining NBCi, I was Design Director at KTVU FOX 2 Television (San Francisco broadcast market), where I worked for over 20 years. I brings a rich background of experiences in design including work on large projects for clients such as Silicon Graphics, Hewlett-Packard, RCN Television, Discovery Pictures, NBC, The Grateful Dead and actress / singer Cher.
Advisory & Teaching Roles
I have served on the Board of Directors for the International Broadcast Designers’ Association for four years, participating in international seminars and conferences on graphic design. In 1996, I was invited to create a curriculum and teach television design to colleagues in the former Soviet Union and Jerusalem. I have continued to work with Ukrainians to develop and produce television public awareness campaigns on social issues affecting the former Soviet Union.
With my extensive multimedia background, I am able to produce creative designs for clients as advanced as the technical solutions permit, always pushing the envelope of what is possible.
I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design from San Jose State University.
