Design & Branding Studio

Hi, my name is Christian Johnston.

I’m a graphic designer and design director 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 and 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. I strive to create great design that benefits my clients and balances the importance of both form and function. I like to design for a large range of clients and welcome new challenges. All projects start with a simple conversation. So shoot me an email and let’s talk.

Thanks for stopping by.
