Sizzling Spotlight: Donovan Johnson

Welcome to the Sizzling Spotlight, where we feature Tallahassee and surrounding area creatives whose work sizzles. We showcase designers and creatives of all forms: they need only possess the spark of creativity – to be “fire” (as the kids say).

This month we’re featuring the sizzling work of Donovan Johnson. 🔥

My name is Donovan Johnson. I am a logo designer, illustrator, and traditional and digital artist from Tallahassee, FL. I’m a Digital Coordinator at Moore Agency where I work on traditional, digital, and animated design.

I might be creatively indecisive because I love to generate work in various areas of graphic art. For example, I like making illustrations focused on the cultures of music, basketball, comics, and street wear. It gives me a chance to play with different colors, shapes, and textures which allows me to visually communicate a playful and fun perspective beyond what is initially perceived.

I also enjoy digital painting because it lets me work with real subjects. I create a tone or mood around the subject that allows people see and feel what I see and feel when I observe a subject.

Finally, there’s logo design which allows me to help create something from scratch and give it life so it has function and executes goals that benefits others. I’ve been lucky enough to have logo work published in the e-book Logo Heraldry: Badges, Crest, and Emblems by Logo Inspirations. And earlier this year I found out another logo I designed will be featured in Logo Lounge’s Book 13.

Not sure how I’m going to balance everything as I continue on my journey, but I’m eager for what’s to come.🔥🔥
