John Lee - Designer

Los Angeles, United States

Designer and illustrator who loves creating exciting scenes filled with mood and expression.


I have been working professionally as a designer and illustrator for 10 years. My clientele consists of musicians, social media personalities, playwrights, food workers, blog writers, and various other small business owners. I am blessed to have wonderful clients who enjoy my work and process and continue to refer me to others. I work with my clients closely each step of the way so they always have a good idea of what to expect. Typically, my creative process starts with brainstorming with the client until an awesome idea is established. From that point, I sketch out the idea and show the layout and composition of the piece. After the layout is established, I finalize the piece with ink and color. Once the piece is finished, I show the client and make sure they are happy with the outcome. Any necessary small changes are made. All of my work is done digitally using Photoshop on a Wacom Cintiq tablet. I am happy to be on this platform and hope to find new and exciting projects to work on!
