Welcome! This is the portfolio site of director and designer Brianna Johnson.

I am a bonafide pop culture junkie, an incurable bookworm, and an all-around nerd. Focusing on experience-driven design, I endeavor to produce strong emotional connections between brand and audience through intuitive, well-executed creative solutions.

Give me a puzzle to be solved, the opportunity to learn something I didn’t know yesterday, to do something I haven’t ever tried. Put a creative challenge in front of me and I will solve it with equal parts grit and whimsy.
