Manley Creative Team

Client Reviews

Happy Customers, Valued Partnerships

If you need an extension of your team, Manley Creative will do what is needed and operate how you need to fit right in. I know that completing projects with Honeywell is not the easiest task, but this team is always up for the challenge. When things could go awry, they are quick with the initiative and will not stop at making sure it is a product that the customer is happy with.

This team does amaze me on their versality, responsiveness, and adaptability. I would recommend Manley for creative and marketing needs for a business.

Manley Creative was a fantastic collaborator for our opera feature film. They were extremely efficient and thoughtful throughout the entire process. Every day, they contributed to such a great creative energy on-set and I would definitely work with them again.

Manley Creative is where it’s at!

Girl Scout Sister

Jim Manley is an expert at what he does and he does it with a smile. His respect for his art and for himself extends to his clients and to those that we need him to deal with – our clients. His instincts on what needs to be done are right-on always. His marketing senses are finely tuned. Working with Jim is truly a “dream come true”. Those trite words are the only ones I could find that would describe the fact that his staff is just like him – having the same qualities and the same care of their work and their relationships. With a difficult work schedule, long days, hard driving and multiple participants, Jim and his crew managed to pull off a stellar product. They then followed this by putting in three days of long hours and dealing with hundred of people – interviewing them, photographing them, videoing them – with never a frown or a word that was short. Always the professional and the work on time and superb. There is no way to give Jim, his crew and Manley Creative any higher accolades. Jim understands what it means to be a team player and he made my team look good.

We used Manley Creative based on an Investor Relations peer's recommendations, after they provided their services for an Investor Day. From top to bottom, the team was absolutely fantastic to work with and was instrumental in executing a successful virtual event.

I would highly recommend using the Manley team for any marketing needs.

Mick McCloskey

Head of Investor Relations, CommScope

I can't say enough good things about Manley Creative. Not only is their work of the highest quality, but every member of their team is top-notch and I thoroughly enjoy working with them. More than once, they have taken our vision and turned it into a reality.

During COVID, they made it possible for us to continue producing video content by implementing A+ safety protocols that have made everyone on set feel comfortable. I highly recommend Manley Creative for your video production and photography needs.

Melinda Langdon

Not only did our sales increase when we hired on the Manley team, our image in the community also changed. Their work has helped take our marketing to an entirely new level, and the difference has been dramatic. The folks at Manley Creative are creative, innovative and kind. They are careful listeners, using the ideas and vision we share to create content that is polished, professional and exciting. Great people, great company.

SJ White

Phoenix Theatre

I've worked with Manley for the last 3-4 years on numerous projects and believe they are the best production house in town. From smaller projects to large campaigns, from concept design to post, they do it all and do it all well, often meeting deadlines that are less than ideal. They hire the right people, are professional, responsive, creative, and a pleasure to work with.

Rob Palmer
