Where Clarity Grows

"Get your hands dirty and elevate the creative process to new heights."

Jeff Johns

SVP, Creative Director

Imagine a temperamental artist without the salty temperament and you pretty much know what makes Jeff tick. Delivering actionable design at lightning speed, Jeff combines his 20 years of industry experience with his passion for consumer-first innovation (and finger-first painting) to inspire compelling creative, from packaging to branding to social media and beyond, with a genial artistic flair that is all his own.

Especially good at:
Delivering distinct and resonant design solutions across a wide range of consumer product categories and environments. Specialties include consumer co-creation, branding, data visualization, social media, new product development and more.

Favorite part of the work:
Collaborating with the team to push the end product way beyond our wildest dreams, delivering something that simplifies consumers’ lives in a fresh way.

Alter ego:
A Grower. “From planting trees, to growing brands, to consistently increasing my painting portfolio, nothing is more fulfilling than planting the seed for the next ‘tree.’ With a little patience, knowledge and persistence, you can grow whatever you put your mind to—and receive the most gratifying reward.”
