The story of John Wilson

John has been in the digital design areana for over 7 years but before this was trained as an architect and artist at Liverpool Community Art College and Liverpool John Moores University. His background in art and design, rather than just in IT, gives a story and conceptual meaning to all the work that he produces all whilst keeping key business goals and USPs in mind.

Raised in Liverpool

John was born in Liverpool, UK, a city known for its musical and innovative creative heritage, a city where the first steel framed building was erected, the first dry dock and a major port up until the mid 20th century. Being a city full of such cultural legacy gave John a passion for the arts from a very young age.

Always been interested in digital art

One of his oldest memories is of using the Amiga500 and Deluxe paint, it was at this point I first started drawing and creating images and something he could often be seen spending hours doing. The style of this website pays homepage to this pixelated era of graphical design and shows where my interest in visual design began.
