Founder & Principal of Colorcubic; I would consider myself a multidisciplinary designer, as my proficiencies span across multiple design disciplines that provide me a platform to convey rich, cohesive, visual narratives. I specialize in Motion Graphics, 2D & 3D Animation, 3D Modeling, Digital Product Design, Ui/Ux Design for desktop & iOS mobile devices, Branding, Typography, Illustration, Package Design, and Layout. My skill-set applies across a variety of useful scenarios, e.g. Creative Decks, Desktop / Tablet / and Mobile Wireframing & Design, 2D & 3D Animation for Promotional Video Ads & Interactive Parallax Experiences for Desktop / Tablet / Mobile devices via three.js & Unity, 3D Printing, Brand Guidelines, Logo Design, Brand Collateral Design, Cassette / CD / Vinyl Package Design, Video Compositing & Editing, and Static / Dynamic Infographic Visual Storytelling. My main objective is to practice & explore multiple design disciplines to create rich, cohesive, visual experiences that leave a lasting impression. - Michael John |
