John is an extraordinarily talented artisan who works in glass, metals, wood and leather, turning lighting and furniture into something closer to fine art. He has congregated a like-minded community around him in Philadelphia, both inspiring and providing opportunities for culture to flourish. Our mission was to bring his world to life with a narrative, a visual identity and a website that expressed his charismatic values coherently. The website became a tool for organising how we told his story; shaping the tonality of photography and film, balancing poetry and pragmatism to both educate and enlighten in equal measure.
