OWNER / ART GUY
Jim is the guy behind the visuals at Behemoth. He is weirdly fascinated by robots, thinks dachshunds make the best dogs because they make him feel tall, and makes his own beer. He is best described as a man-child that has a lot of graphic tee shirts. In his 11 years of experience before starting Behemoth, Jim worked at VML, Bernstein-Rein, Barkley, DMH, and C3. His work has been featured in the National Addys, Cannes, the Clios, the Radio Mercury Awards, AIGA, and a few books and websites. He graduated from the University of Kansas with a Journalism/Advertising degree and Graphic Design degree from Johnson County Community College.
Jim does what he can to help save animals in the Kansas City area.

HOW WE DO WORK
Every agency has their way of doing things. In some cases, that way is pretty inefficient and expensive. Here’s ours.
The Behemoth No-Longer Secret Process™
1. Give us a problem.
2. We go back to our tiny, 1 window office and ask ourselves, “How can we solve this problem?”
3. If necessary, we go get outside team members that have specific skills or relevant experience based on your project.
4. We find a single, meaningful idea to build your brand on.
5. We use that idea to quickly make something simple that people will like. It's that easy.
