Johnny Whitman
Senior Art Director and Digital Designer

About

I’m an art director and designer of many things who recently returned to the Seattle area.

I’ve found that compassion and collaboration drive great work and pushing brands outside of their comfort zone—if even a little—leads to more memorable experiences and stronger results.

In our rapidly evolving world, I’m here to create with intention, delivering experiences that bring agency and value to the end-user. And to have fun. Life is too short to mail it in.

Here to create mindful, meaningful experiences, brands & campaigns

Born and raised on the Washington coast, I’ve long been fascinated with the relationship between design and technology and it's role in shaping the world around us. I originally set out to become an industrial designer, though refocused to graphic design after moving to Nashville, where I also pursued a career in the music industry. While in Tennessee, I built close relationships and created nationally recognized cross-discipline work. Now, armed with a comprehensive skill set and passion for great work, I’m back in Western Washington and returning my focus to human-centered design—empowering users and creating authentic connections between brands and their audience.

I’m currently working as a Senior Designer & Art Director with Microsoft Stores Studio performing content design, UX design, branding, campaign creation and more. I'm always eager for new challenges both in the office and out. Let's chat.
