Hello, my name is Scott Johnson and I'm a graphic designer and photographer. A passion for drawing comic book heroes as a child grew into a love for art which ultimately put me on an unavoidable career path. A place in the creative field really was the only thing I could imagine myself doing in the future, and being happy at the same time.
I started working professionally as a graphic designer in the 90's. My first job was for a small outdoor advertising company in Allentown. Would you believe my main design tool was a Xerox machine? We had a Mac, but we really only used it for typesetting back then. The photocopier was where all the final production art was created. It is amazing how fast the graphic design industry has moved since then.
Today, being a graphic designer is equal parts creative, builder and learner. I do my best to keep pace with trends and explore new technologies... but at heart, I’m still that kid who loves to draw comic book heroes. I just use a computer now.
