About
My Name is John Drenkhahn. I'm a forward-thinking graphic designer, front end developer and illustrator. With over 10 years experience at in-house design departments and as a freelancer, I have worked with companies like PlatformQ Health, Service Point, Subway, Archimedia Solutions LLC, and Beacon Partners. 
As a creative problem solver, I have designed and managed various types of projects that include print, web, email, display graphics, fleet graphics, branding and logo design. I'm a collaborator with strong inter-personal and organizational skills, capable of working with all levels of personnel in a deadline driven environment. 
I enjoy learning new things, problem solving through design, designing logos, building websites, illustrating and working with other creative minded people. 
Much of my inspiration comes from Scandinavian design and comic book art. I have utilized techniques similar to those of artists like Jim Lee, David Finch, and Graham Smith, and from UX evangelists like Jason Ogle and Jakob Nielsen.
If you are interested in hiring a freelancer for your next design, web or illustration project, please contact me. I’d love to hear from you.

"John is a very talented graphic designer. The time we worked together I learned a lot from him: branding, graphics, color and web design. He has high technological knowledge and skills, learns fast, knows the target and always gets nice results. Although distance, we worked remotely for local and global projects on time and as expected, with his professional touch that only a designer like him can get."
