Hey there, I’m John! As an Associate Designer at Cantina, I solve complex problems utilizing a holistic design process with a focus on multidisciplinary collaboration and rapid iteration. I have worked for over six years in UI/UX and visual design, creating wireframes and visual concepts in various industries like advertising, public relations, education, entertainment, financial services, consumer electronics, transportation, publishing, and music.
Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to blend my love for music with my design experience. While at RSW Advertising, I created the digital presence of Weyfest Weymouth, a music and arts festival that promotes unity, togetherness, and fun while incorporating historical aspects of the town. I’ve also worked with bands like Battle Plan For The Weekend, Braver, Bravo Sierra, Owl Hours, Paper Ties, Sorry For The Lions, and many more, designing their brand, album artwork, and website properties.
Design is thinking made visual.
Other Fun Facts
Music has always been a passion of mine. While in school I started a concert series featuring local bands and artists to bring the college community closer together. When I’m not designing, I write and perform music; I’ve played with eight different groups, including several that have played at Warped Tour and recorded with some big-name record studios.
