Hi, I'm Kyle Johnson!

I am a passionate, Los Angeles based designer who loves to work on a team, but am flexible and am equally eager to head a project on my own. When I'm not working on this site I like to read, make beats, frolic with my dog, and try to skateboard.

Between Time Place & Purpose

"Yuzu" Packaging and Branding
A package design exercise undertook in my Graphic Design 3 class, in collaboration with Farm Design. The directive was to create a package design as well as preliminary branding, for a fictional seltzer company, targeting a hip, younger feminine audience(YUZU). I additionally adapted Farm Design's process which includes a collage-based brandscape after initial sketching.

LIFEAID | Apparel Design
I enjoyed working on apparel the most over the course of my time at LIFEAID. The majority of the products on this page were made with instruction from Slack messages or phone calls with the head of apparel, Edlina Melehan. I got to have a lot of creative freedom and made pieces with the intention of pivoting away from activewear to more of a lifestyle brand. The "Beast" shirt was made as part of a leadgen giveaway, with a target audience of the crossfit community.
