Where Clarity Grows

"I love seeing the epiphany occur for someone—the light bulb moment."

John Kitzmiller

VP, Creative Director

You name it, he’s drawn it. A prolific creative with over 20 years in the industry, John is an experienced innovator and leader who consistently delivers compelling design that pushes boundaries and perfectly synchs up with brand strategy. That’s a fancy way of saying that he sketches ideas into reality really, really well.

Especially good at:
Advertising and marketing in all media, branding, CPG package design, illustration, innovation… and mediocre guitar.

Favorite part of the work:
Creating in a team environment. It’s amazing to watch a group of really creative and strategic individuals grow an idea from a simple spark to a fully-fledged concept. The group setting allows the team to explore the outer fringes of their imaginations and ask "why not?"—then see how the thinking opens up. It's a great journey.

Alter ego:
The Explorer. “Never wanting to be fenced in or trapped in conformity, the Explorer is always searching for a better, more authentic, more fulfilling life. Count me in.”
