aloha. hello. bonjour.
My name is Jane Johnson. I’m a graphic designer and photographer living on a tropical island in the middle of the Pacific with my overly handsome husband of over a decade. Goodness, I love that man.
The first thing you should know is this: I’m a writer. I love to write. And I write how I talk. So this is me. Plain and simple. No fluff.
This graphic design business started accidentally. When I started my photography business in 2007, I designed a new website for myself to stand apart from the cookie-cutter websites and expected, ordinary fonts most photographers were using at the time. I did a trade with a friend to develop it for me. And when it went live, a lot of people asked if I could do the same thing for them. So I did. And I haven’t looked back.
I design because I can’t help myself. I’m a self-proclaimed type-AA personality, which means every single project I put out is created pixel-perfect. I’m also a font snob. (Some things you just can’t help.) And everything I’ve learned has been self-taught. (Would you believe I actually failed my college graphic design program?) I suppose that little tidbit is the truth of 1 Corinthians 1:27 lived out: He has chosen the foolish of the world to put to shame the wise.
It’s that series of unexpected events that has woven together this business that I love. And now you find yourself here. With me. Thinking about starting a creative journey of your own. I would love to come alongside and help you along with it.
Take a look at my work. If you think we’d be a great fit together, hop on over to the Contact page and send me a note. I can’t wait to chat!
