I've been privileged twice to be colleagues with John. The first was on the Applied Arts 2006 exhibition of posters held at NSCAD's Anna Leonowens Gallery in Halifax, NS. The second was at Form:Media.
John is an excellent project manager, as well as a designer of intelligence, knowledgability and originality. No detail or function escapes his consideration, while keeping the entire scope of the project in sight. He offers ideas and supportive information with thoughtfulness, keen insight and tact. His presentation skills are excellent. I know of few people who work harder than John.
