GRAPHIC DESIGN

John Labots says he was born a graphic designer. Beginning with early art projects and school reports, he has always been interested in assembling images and words on the page. Now, with more than 35 years of experience in the business of graphic design, a deep passion for this art form still burns.

John believes graphic design is about more than making things look artistically pleasing. It is also about the “art” of organizing. His success as a designer lies in keeping a close eye on the details and his ability to communicate complex information simply.
