Hello world! For those of you who don’t know me. My name is Amy Johnson and I’m a Chicago-based Digital Interaction Designer & Illustrator. Welcome to my new and improved website, www.JohnsonJustified.com.
I’ve worked on many projects over the past 8 years and I’ve had a website for many of them, however I hadn’t given them the love and attention they needed because I was limited in the time to produce them. So instead of frantically creating a frankenstein-ed website in-between jobs, I made a system for myself and a promise to update along the way. I’m not looking for another full-time job, but I want a place to share my story.
In the past, I used Behance on the back end to update my projects. Shifting into a new regime, I made the conscious decision to use Squarespace as a platform. I could technically code my own website and create a completely unique experience, however the purpose of this site is much more rudimentary. I needed a CMS that I can update quickly and manage efficiently. I wanted metrics and a blog. I wanted my work to shine, so the spent the majority of my time cleaning up mock-ups, pulling out process pieces and adding and subtracting projects to highlight my current strengths and passions. Since I’m not on a job hunt, I wanted to make this a place for every medium I enjoy rather than a place specifically dedicated to Product Design.
In the end, I really just want to meet new people and grow as a designer. This new site is the perfect jumping point for that. I hope you enjoy my work and I’d love to get to know all of you reading this.
