“I have worked with Sherwin Llames on several books for Go Negosyo and it was always a beautiful experience. We worked well together with minimum direction and fuss and he had the patience to handle all those inevitable last-minute corrections. You could trust him to take care of everything from his end. Also helped that he understood my squiggly handwriting. All in all, a fulfilling experience every time. It would be an honor to work with him again.. and soon!”

"Sherwin and I worked on the book, “Tessa: Ten Times Ten,” which was a compilation of the best Inquirer Lifestyle columns of Tessa Prieto Valdes over a decade, divided into ten themed chapters, each by a different author. The entire project took over a year to finish, by a small, four-person editorial and graphic design team including Sherwin.
Over the year that we worked together, I came to value Sherwin for his graphic vision, and his ability to defend that outlook through various discussions with the team. Even more critically, he followed through on the discussions, producing excellent work on the themed chapters, each of which demanded a slightly different look and feel while still adhering to the overall graphic design vision. I also loved that Sherwin went “beyond the script,” bringing in an artist for the cover watercolor, and guiding the artist to produce the work that he had envisioned.
Sherwin is an excellent graphic designer, bringing not only artistry to a project, but also management expertise and dedication."

President and Executive Director,
Sherwin is one of the most professional art directors I've worked with. It was always easy to explain the concept to him because he knows exactly what you want even if the project description was vague. He simply gets it. There's story and emotions in every project he did with us and he created each one of it with his heart and his burning passion for visual arts. Sherwin's skills and talent are one of a kind. You'd know a book will be a best seller if the project was created by him.

I have worked with Sherwin Llames in various cookbook projects and I know what a prolific mind he has.
His head is a goldmine of artistic and creative content. As an Art Director, he carefully maps out his vision for his books, executes his concepts with clarity and purpose, and provides crucial directions for both photographer and food stylist.
It is a joy to work with him because he knows exactly how to bring his concept to life. He provides cohesiveness to the team that translates to everyone being on the same page and working with one goal in mind.
I trust the creative process that goes on in Sherwin’s mind. He pours his heart and soul on every project. With his passion evident in his work, expect only good things to come from him.

When I first met Sherwin Llames, he had twinkle in his eyes. It was his first time in ABS-CBN Publishing. We just finished his job application interview and I walked him into the office. His eyes would scan the area as if memorizing the detail of the office. He was on board a few days later. We were not wrong to have him on board. He had fire, passion and creative courage to do things differently, fresh. I remember we had our first meeting for Go Negosyo with Joey Concepcion. He was not shy, he was inquisitive and was serious about making his first Go Negosyo book a success. And it was. Sherwin Llames is the kind of creative artist we need who is humble in spirit but brave with his dream! Go fly more, Sherwin! It was great to be part of your journey!
