Melissa-Karnaze“Jacob is a pleasure to work with. He is courteous, patient with questions, reliable, and a great communicator. He is very focused on the creative process and he completed my project well before the deadline. And not only did Jacob deliver logos that I could emotionally connect to and identify with, he went out of his way to kindly advise me on how best to integrate one of the logos with my website. Anyone who takes that extra care to help you succeed is someone worth sticking with! Jacob truly cares about his clients,and even though the project is finished, I still feel supported by him in continuing to build my business! ”

G Squared Capital LogomarkWe wholeheartedly endorse Jacob for those who want to do things differently when it comes to design. He is both analytical and creative in his process and takes the time to genuinely understand the business he is collaborating with. Jacob does not do “off the shelf”. As a person he is a wonder to work with, so it is not surprising he comes so highly recommended. We are hooked (or indeed ’Cassed’!) and will remain loyal clients for many years to come.”

Both his obvious skill level and his impressive resume inspire confidence, and working with him was a pleasure. He completed his work on time, he was very receptive to input regarding the direction / look I desired, and most importantly the end product was a big success.

Saranpaal“We took on Jacob as designer for a new website for Sikh Youth Australia, a national community youth organisation. This project was a large undertaking and involved the organisation of a lot of functionality and content, whilst keeping the website design clean, fresh and modern.
Right from the get go, Jacob impressed us with his commitment to the project and insightful research and analysis of our requirements. His design process demonstrated a high level of professionalism, flair and sophistication. At the same time he was also able to communicate effectively and work very closely with the project team, responding constructively in interpreting and working with our feedback.
The end product was a website that exceeded our expectations in regards to creating a fantastic brand image / feel, whilst also maximising functionality. His attention to detail and understanding of current design trends and practices allowed us to achieve a result that we are extremely proud of and we would recommend Jacob without hesitationto anyone who wants a striking, professional, and functional website.”

Oke LogoWorking with Jacob was extremely rewarding. The way he solicited the project requirements made the process very efficient and ensured that I got what I was looking for. Jacob is a truly gifted designer who brought his own ideas to the table and added his own elements to the artwork that took the resulting work beyond what I had envisioned. This was a major asset. But moreover, Jacob was eager to please and worked tirelessly until we achieved the great artwork that will drive all of my sub-sequent branding. I recommend Jacob unconditionallyand hope to use his services again soon.”– Akil Crawford, Oké Cocktail Rum
 
Paul ConnerIn looking for a logo design, I had my eye on Jacob from seeing his outstanding work at JUST™ Creative. Before contacting him, I hesitated thinking that it would be a long shot to get him (like asking Paul McCartney to sing at your wedding!). However, I took a shot and found he was available and willing to work with me. Per my objectives, Jacob directed my thinking toward a simple, yet powerful logo design. What’s interesting is that every day I like the logo more and more, which speaks to Jacob’s forward thinking & powerful creativity.

SECOR Asset Management“Jacob had a tough task when I told him we needed a logo & visual identity for a global investment management firm, that was modern yet stable. It is quite an accomplishment in itself, that our team members (formerly with two of the largest investment companies in the world) are proud of the logo/business cards. What a start for a start-up!”
– Tony Kao, Secor Asset Management
 
Scott Barnes“Jacob was an absolute pleasure to work with and I’m honored to have his name on my project.As a musician, with very little knowledge of graphic design, I’ve had difficulty in the past conveying my ideas and visions to graphic artists.Jacob asked me the right questions to get a true sense of the feel of my project, and he took the time to understand it. He was responsive, punctual, and patient throughout the entire process. I will always recommend Jacob to anyone looking for any graphic design work. I am more than 100% pleasedwith the final product. Thanks you, Jacob!”
– Scott Barnes, Scott Barnes Music
 
Dennis Jablonski“Jacob absolutely nailed my website in his first draft, delivering a perfect result much faster than I expected!
When I contacted Jacob about designing my website I was highly unorganised, lacking vision, ideas and actual content – possibly a ‘designer’s nightmare’!
Jacob’s excellent communication skills and wealth of experience in dealing with small business clients meant he could quickly identify my needs and business image and provide much needed guidance with minimal fuss. I consider myself very lucky to have met Jacob and highly recommend him!
– Dennis Jablonski, Rehab Massage

It doesn’t get any better than this!”

I have been constantly amazed, delighted and impressed by his ability to adapt my thoughts, ideas and in some cases, unrealistic expectations into a slick and user friendly site.
How fortunate I have been to find Jacob, apart from his wonderful artistic talent, his ability and speed to adapt and alter as the site grew has been a true benefit. My only one regret is that I wished I had discovered the talents of Jacob Cass years ago!”

Lenore K.“My experience dealing with JUST™ Creative was an absolute pleasure. Jacob is professional, results orientated and keeps you informed. Absolutely impeccable service – they delivered when they said they would; within budget and with a fantastic result. It was by far the best return on advertising we have had this year and, has exceeded all of our expectations as we have seen a dramatic increase in traffic to our websiteand services. Testament to JUST™ Creative we are continually congratulated on our professional looking brand and we will continue to recommend this innovative service to others.”

Luke Arms“I hired Jacob to design a new logo for One Fine Day Photography. It was my first time working with a professional designer, and I couldn’t have been happier. From beginning to end, it was clear that he wanted to deliver a logo that would achieve my aims for it while providing a tangible connection with my current branding, encapsulating the core values of my business and designing a piece of art that we could both be proud of.
None of those things can be rushed, and although I was impressed with Jacob’s turnaround, I had no doubt that he was extremely thorough in researching my business and market, experimenting with a variety of designs, and preparing his concepts for my feedback. I wasn’t easy to please when it came to finding a design I loved, but Jacob was exceptionally accommodating with all of my requests (including the silly ones) and within a few days we had arrived at a design I could accept without hesitation.
Jacob might only be in his early twenties, but his giftedness as a designer and his command of doing business in the 21st century are clearly evident in the international following he has gained within the design community. This speaks volumes of the quality of his work and the passion he has for it. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
– Luke Arms, One Fine Day Photography

I first came across Jacob on another graphic design blog that profiled him early in 2008 – from there I read his blog, JUST™ Creative, and was impressed with his depth of knowledge about graphic design and I liked the idea that he had young, fresh ideas. He completed our design within the time promised and since has provided a few revisions to enable us to make the most of the logo in the layout of our website. I would definitely recommend Jacob to any prospective clientlooking for graphic design work.” – Helena Denley, D-zyne Solutions

“Jacob is an enthusiastic and refreshing talent who would be an asset to any creative team. I found Jacob to be professional, considerate and a real pleasure to work with.
David Vogler, Creative Director, NBC Universal
 
Jacob is an inspiration to everyone in the design community, everyone has seen his work, and everyone loves it. I am honored to know Jacob and enjoy his awesome blog that has a TON of design resources that he created by hand. His logos are amazing, his designs are amazing. Anyone would be considered privileged to have worked with him on any project.
Andy Sowards, Web Programmer
 
Jacob’s work on JUST™ Creative has been inspirational for me, as well as countless other designers. He has become a thought-leader for the design community, which is impressive in and of itself — but when you consider he gained his first freelance job at 16 and has built JCD to such a success since only launching in Nov. 2007… while in college — it’s a tribute to both his talent and entrepreneurial abilities. Look for Jacob to continue to do great things in the design field for many years to come.
Neil Brown, Art Director, Brown Advertising + Design
 
Jacob is a talented graphic designer with an expanding portfolio of great work. He is also one of the most articulate writers on the subject of graphic designto emerge in the last couple of years. Jacob’s graphic design blog (JUST™ Creative) is a rich resource of information, ideas and inspiration. His writing is accessible and entertaining, but most importantly it shows a real insight into the process required to produce great work. I track about 150 blogs, of which over 75 relate to design and marketing. JUST™ Creative is in the top 5 “go to” blogs that I read first.
Mat Atkinson, Founder of ProofHQ
 
Jacob is more than a contact. He’s a guru, well thought of in the design industry. Hundreds (maybe more) of us aspiring designers flock to his website and his blogs to get the latest on design ideas and concepts. When we’re stuck with “designers block” we come to Jacob’s website and his blogs, and come away with quite a bit of answers as well as inspiration. Whether Jacob can do the job isn’t doing him justice-he’ll write the book on how to do it!
Mike Dragonetti, Freelance Web Designer

I know Jacob from his JUST™ Creative blog where he writes about creative graphic design, having discovered his site in early 2008. Jacob’s writing is clear, concise and well structured offering tips and advice in many areas of graphical design- his type classification ebook is well worth a download. There is a fascinating mix of content on Jacob’s site including awe inspiring creative photographs, design inspiration and recommendations of essential designer related sites.
