John Short

Creative Strategist & Designer

John studied graphic design at Kingston University in England, co-founding a London-based design agency soon after. Before moving to Vancouver he worked as a designer in Sydney, Australia, and Calgary, Alberta, winning a few design awards along the way. John loves creating concept-driven strategies and designs, and you’ll probably see him using white space with typography and splashes of strong colour to do so.

What do you do when you're not designing?

Once upon a time I was Great British and English karate champion but now I can usually be found on the side of a mountain snowboarding, hunting for star wars books in thrift shops to add to my ever-growing collection, watching Formula 1, cheering for the Gooners (real football), or gazing up at the stars and wondering about what it would be like to fall into a black hole. And waiting for my invitation to go to Mars.
