Cofounder, Sew

I'm most proud of the creative agency I co-founded, Sew and what we'eve accomplished.  We started Sew because we believed business could as much an engine for change as it is for wealth creation; we simply needed to be more creative. I'm proud and thankful that over the last five years our work has validated that belief through our work with iconic brands like Gap, Ford, Verizon and others. 

James Toney is the Chief Strategist and Co-Founder of the Los Angeles creative agency, Sew. Sew develops digital and social marketing strategies for brands that includes OWN, Ford, Verizon, AAA, and Gap.

Toney was recently recognized as Forbes 30 under 30. It is Sews unique approach to campaigns that garners recognition. Sew unites brands and community to create meaningful campaigns.

"The principle I live by is humility. No matter how hard you work or talented you are other people have to take a chance on you for you to succeed. Our success exemplifies the grace of others as much as it does our talents and work ethic."
