JMS Noteworthy: Jean Marie and Brad Earn Accolades

By: Audrey Garcia    Posted: July 19, 2017

Sometimes people are surprised to hear that JMS doesn’t put its name on client work. But once in awhile, JMS is brought to the spotlight due to great clients and campaigns that keep us always pushing to achieve more.

Our Very Own Woman of Distinction

Each year with support from Shaw Media, McHenry County Magazine, presents the Women of Distinction Awards to individuals in the County who are role models and leaders in their fields and communities. These women come from many different backgrounds and work in a variety of industries, but they all share a common goal of paving the way for young women and giving back to the communities in which they live.

President and founder Jean Marie Saidler, was selected as one of this year’s winners; she joins an amazing group of other women who have made a clear impact on others. The JMS team joined Jean Marie at the awards luncheon on May 10, where she and the other winners had a chance to reflect on their journeys. Each recipient had wonderful advice to share. Jean Marie expressed her gratitude for being selected, recognized the staff and her family as her support system, and reminded the audience that young women should be assured that they really can do anything they set their minds to.

Designing for Quality and Precision

JMS often works with clients to develop new websites and to keep their websites updated as technology changes.  For client K&L Anodizing, that time to update had come.  K&L has been a leader in the highly technical metal finishing industry for more than 65 years.  Their clients represent some of the largest industries in medical, aerospace, military and commercial manufacturing.  JMS Senior Graphic Designer Brad Norlin took on the challenge, with the client’s goals and optimum functionality in mind. K&L wanted to refresh content, update pages and add new information in an industry where regulations change frequently but processes carry over through time.

Brad worked with JMS account managers and the client to develop a user-friendly design and layout that would present information quickly and succinctly. And this efficient design recently earned JMS an American Web Design Award from Graphic Design USA.

Take a peek at the updated website and let us know if you’re ready for a refresh.


Congratulations to Jean Marie and Brad on their recent achievements, showcasing how JMS goes beyond the expected for client success!
