What they're saying.
If you like Bruce Lee, you’ll like Jon. If you like the band “X,” you’ll like Jon. If you want a talented art director who can think as well as he can design, you’ll love Jon.
This guy’s a monster talent, and he’s one of the easiest people to get along with. Print, digital, direct mail, TV, Jon knows his way around all mediums. Sure, he’ll give you what you want, but then he’ll come up with some mind-blowing idea you never thought of and you’ll go, “That’s it!” I hired him once, and I’d hire him again.

I've have had the pleasure of working with Jon for the past 14 years at Wunderman, Johnson Gray Advertising and Chrysalis. He's always been the dependable Art Director I look forward to working with to get the work done the right way and in a timely manner for my clients. Not only does Jon take direction well, he listens to the needs of clients and goes above and beyond in producing great creative. Jon doesn't accept mediocre work - he is fully involved from the time the brief is shared to the time the final product is delivered, ensuring every detail meets his standards. Aside from demonstrating passion in his role, Jon brings a contagious positive attitude to his team and he makes working together a pure joy!

Our project had a tight timeframe, tight budget and we were looking for a whole new, fresh look that would convey our brand image and reinforce our marketing strategy. Jon delivered in all areas. He was able to quickly understand our needs and create options that were exactly what we were hoping to get.
Everything was on time or ahead of deadlines and Jon was amazingly responsive to updates or modifications. All of the artwork went to printers without a hitch. Jon’s pricing was great and he worked with us to fit into our budgets. There were no surprises or unexpected costs involved. He also went the extra mile to ensure that the finished product was exactly what we were looking for and that it met very high quality expectations. He also has numerous sources for other services which helped get our product done quickly and with high quality.
I would HIGHLY recommend Jon Lagda to anyone looking for someone with great creative skills, as well as a strong understanding of marketing strategy and the ability to see a project through from beginning to end.
