Chris Johnson


Hello! I’m Chris Johnson, but you can call me CJ. I am a graphic designer, project manager, and photographer with over 20 years of experience telling visual stories for museums, visitor centers, community theaters, and small businesses. I am honored to have played an integral role in several award-winning projects. Please see the list below.

I love the process of discovering the unique story of a place or a business, then finding compelling ways to tell that story using branding, social media, website design, printed and digital media, typography and photography. I take pride in creating beautiful compositions that inform, excite, and encourage action. I have an insatiable curiosity and am constantly learning new skills to use in my craft. 

I would love to talk with you about your story and how I can help you tell it to the world.
