John Larsen Design Portland Oregon

Greetings

I'm John. I'm a versitile designer and creative problem solver working in Portland, Oregon. I believe in developing inviting experiences that are simple, elegant, and easy to use.

I work for Drive Marketing Group.

Me

Larsen's the name, interwebs is my game. I have over 18 years of creative production experience in web, print, design and fabrication.

But it's not all about pushing pixels for me. I can draw by hand, paint with an HVLP gun and sculpt with a sawzall. I have lead projects for Intel, Cirque du Soleil, the Metropolitan Opera, the Royal National Theater, Nike, Disney, and Universal Pictures.

I work collaboratively with my wife Vicki Lynn Wilson producing community engaged public artwork and installation. We recently founded a self sustaining community garden atop an abandoned gas station.

I don't think I would be the person I am today without the incredible experience of working for Michael Curry Design. Where else could you lay up carbon fiber frogs and sculpt with bare razor blades, all while wearing the latest stretch spandex?

Below are some samples of projects I Art Directed on, painted on, sculpted on, and otherwise bled on with the talented and dedicated MCD crew.
