MEET THE EXPERT.
Hello. I'm Victoria Johnson, visual communicator, full service graphic designer and illustrator based in Southern California.
Having grown up in a family of talented artists and musicians, creativity is bred in the bones. My father, who majored in Commercial Art at Pasadena City College, often joked that creativity is no career for "those who like to eat". Taking dad's words to heart I worked my share of stable jobs with stable incomes that kept food plentiful on the table (dad was pleased).
One day I had an epiphany: I wanted to do more than just work to live, I wanted to live my work too. Shortly after earning an Associates degree in Commercial Design and Photography from Watterson College, a local tech school, I landed my first job as production artist for the antiques and collectibles magazine, Collector. From there it was onward and upward to becoming an independent designer in 2002.
What do I like best about being an independent? Freedom...to work my own schedule. Choice...to work on the projects that fit my design personality. Diversity...in the different industries and clientele I've had the pleasure to collaborate with from the West Coast of USA to the UK, from Istanbul, Turkey to Sydney, Australia. I have doggedly trod this career path through feasts, famines, numerous cups of late night coffee and creative chaos to help meet seemingly impossible deadlines.
Truly, I wouldn't have it any other way.
