My name is Jana Johnson

I was born on the east coast of Canada, raised in Toronto and someday I hope to go out west and see just how flat the Prairies are before I hit the Rocky Mountains. But I digress.

I’ve been drawing and sketching since I could hold a pencil but never really got going in design until my twenties. I took a detour into marketing at Canadian Tire Corporation and London Life Insurance before I decided to go to college as a “mature” student (mature–seriously? I was only 28.) So even though I started later I achieved my diploma in Graphic Design from Durham College in Oshawa, Ontario.

I started freelance graphic design in 1995 under the name “Johnson Art & Design”. When I branched out into web design, I rebranded myself as the “Paint & Pixel Design Company”.

Freelance design allowed me to pursue my dream of being a stay-at-home mom for my son, and doing the work that I enjoy, graphic design and web design.

I love the creative process. I love what I do. And I would love to create something for you.
