Design Director & Graphic Designer based in KAnsas City, MO.

Johnston Design Studio is a collection of my creative works. My love for design comes from the combination of the creative process & problem solving through visual communication. I believe that good design goes beyond the surface & has a solid foundation based on research and critical thinking. I strive to create great design that benefits my clients & balances the importance of both form & function. I like to design for a large range of clients & welcome new challenges. All projects start with a simple conversation. Shoot me an email if you think I'd be a good fit for your next project.
