25th Anniversary, Day 15: The Jim Interview Series Part II

By Official Disney Store Blogger, Mar 13, 2012 9:12 AM

It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means…

We have our second video interview in The Jim Interview Series! Today I have the pleasure of featuring Jim Valeri, the Senior Manager of Design here at Disney Store.

Jim Valeri
Jim Valeri, Senior Manager of Design for Disney Store North America.

Jim received a degree in illustration from Cal State Northridge and began his career at Disney as an intern in 1994. Now, eighteen years later, Jim is still with the company creating and designing for Disney Store. He has worked on a whole range of projects, from the Robots Vinylmation Series to most recently the beautiful 25th Anniversary artwork gracing Disney Stores nationwide. Art is a huge part of Jim’s life, so being able to work in the creative environment of Disney Store allows him to bring characters to life with his work each and every day.

Take a listen at what Jim had to say about his role at Disney Store, why he loves what he does, and some cool inside information about the new exclusive 25th Anniversary Vinylmation figure!
