I had worked with Jim Warner on the Hellmann’s brand, and in particular on the Global Structural Squeeze Bottle Redesign.
Jim was an immense help in working through the various stages of design development and research, and was able to offer sound advice on the feasibility of the various designs submitted, the Injection molds and of course, on the aesthetic of the Design itself.
One of the key aspects of the submission of this new design was whether it was able to run on existing manufacturing lines, and if filling could be done at the same rate… Jim offered his expertise in these matters as well.
This new bottle design was indeed a success – both on our lines, and on-shelf!
Jim Warner is a wonderful man of the highest integrity and work ethic. His creativity and ingenuity, as applied to any design projects, is second to none. I have recommended and introduced him many a time and I never expect to stop.President | Quadrant Management Consulting LLC
Jim is truly an expert in 3D packaging, product, sustainability design, and branded environments. He was instrumental in creating 3D retail display concepts that brought our brand to life! We relied on his years of experience and ability to translate our goals into actionable recommendations. Jim’s approach is visionary and awe-inspiring, and at the same time, pragmatic and realistic. Highly recommended!Director, Strategy | Samsung Electronics
I have known Jim for over 10+ years and have worked with him on several challenging development projects requiring innovative design, out-of-the-box thinking, aesthetical and functional creativity, and being fearless while mitigating the risks but staying focused on the greater reward. He is an enjoyable and positive person to be around, always willing to lend a helping hand. I highly recommend Jim to any organization for any project.Senior Designer | The Coca Cola Company
Jim led numerous branding, 3D packaging, product, and sustainability initiatives with my teams in two companies I founded, owned, and eventually sold. He continues to be a trusted, valued contributor for me. At Filtrexx, he made our complex, technical GardenSoxx product line look like a cohesive brand and comfortable enough for people to give them the confidence to purchase and install it themselves - all thru his design work. Amazing!Inventor, Founder | Filtrexx International, GardenSoxx
Jim Warner has a remarkable range as a designer, innovator, educator, and entrepreneur. When he created the 360 Paper Bottle, the world’s first pulp-fiber packaging system, I had the pleasure of fielding countless requests from countless people and companies who wanted to know more about it and use it. His vision tapped a need worldwide and ignited a megatrend in 3D packaging. That was just one of many sustainable, beautiful innovations I’ve seen Jim create.VP Enterprise Design | Throughline

I’ve enjoyed working with and learning from Jim Warner while leading the Asia-Pacific operations for Brandimage and, more recently, while running my Hong Kong-based strategic branding firm, Passionfruit. We created some great work across a variety of categories. From spirits to electronics and food to sports accessories in Malaysia, South Korea, and Greater China with brands like Pernod-Ricard, Danone, and Midea. Jim is always approachable, available, and dedicated and has that unique ability to take a conceptual flash and make it a commercial success.CEO and Founder | Passionfruit Asia Ltd
Few individuals possess Jim Warner’s unique combination of creativity, innovation, and visionary thinking. Jim is an absolute pleasure, excelling as a contributor and a collaborative team player. His expertise in design, combined with my background in marketing, created a dynamic synergy that enhanced our collective output. Jim fosters a creative and nurturing work environment, encouraging open dialogue and supporting the growth and development of his team members. His mentoring approach inspires all those around him to push their boundaries, embrace experimentation, and be fearless, which might help explain why he still plays competitive ice hockey goalie. I should know, I was his right winger for many years in Chicago!VP Marketing | Task Ray
I have worked with Jim in high-level marketing and corporate executive roles for many years. He has helped me and my teams redefine, create, develop, and implement some of the most iconic and influential 3D packaging the world has ever seen. His talent is legendary, but he’s a down-to-earth guy with an impeccable character. He profoundly understands branding, the marketplace, operations, and especially the user. His work contribution is invaluable, but personally, it’s a joy to know him and an honor to call him my friend.CEO | Nehemiah Manufacturing Company
