Design & Branding Studio

Hi, my name is Christian Johnston.

Johnston Design Studio is a collection of my creative works. For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by the process of creation. In the past I tapped into this love through music and painting.  Most recently I have concentrated my creative efforts and passion into design. My love for design comes from the combination of the creative process with problem solving through visual communication. I believe that good design goes beyond the surface and has a solid foundation based on research and critical thinking to accomplish goals and serve a purpose. I strive to create great design that benefits my clients and accomplishes more than a pretty facade. I like to design for a large range of clients and welcome new challenges with excitement and confidence. All projects start with a simple conversation. So send me an email if you have a project that could benefit from my services.

Thanks for stopping by!
