Hi– I’m John, a graphic designer and letterer. I was born and raised in the Steel City, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, where from a young age I had known I wanted to persue a creative career. I went on to attend West Virginia University, where after getting my hands on a Mac, stat camera and letterpress I knew graphic design would be my focus. Upon graduation with a BFA in graphic design I decided to expand my life experiences and moved west to Boulder, Colorado. There I started my design career where I found great success in the outdoor performance sportswear industry as well as the specialty food and wine industry. In 2002 an opportunity presented itself to accept a job offer in California. Again, I picked up my life for another adventure even further west landing in the heart of Silicon Valley. For the next 14 years I persued a career with Whole Foods Market doing graphic design in several locations around the San Francisco bay area as well as keeping a steady flow of freelance work.
You will find that good design is a passion of mine. Whether feeding off of the creative juices of a collaborative group or putting on some headphones and buckling down for production, I am dedicated to the craft of it and always strive for perfection in each new challenge I take on. Clients and coworkers alike have described me as having a sharp eye for detail and a creative fun approach to conveying their message and solving their problem through design. You’ll also find that I’m an upright guy who works hard and is easy to get along with.
The fall of 2015 brought me the opportunity to once again start a new chapter of my design career. What’s next you ask? That’s where you come in. I’m available immediately, any time, and any place to use my experience and passion to create great things. How can I help you?
