"I have worked with James Protano on numerous sites and logo designs for various businesses and projects in the Cayman Islands, all of a different nature. James can take basic concepts and ideas and convert them into reality with minimal direction from client. He is very accommodating to work with and he responds quickly to requests. I look forward to working with him on future projects."

James Protano
About Onward Design
The name Onward Design came as a result of the way in which the company came about. In 2008, after the recession hit yet another relapse, James Protano, founder, was among the many that were directly affected. After a two month "grand tour" of Europe, he decided to make a more sustainable lifestyle by coming back to his home of New York and starting up on his own.

With an independent streak, lots of determination and meeting great people, he's sustained the lifestyle he pursued.
