Bringing folks together with music /product design & branding
Music is an inherently communal activity. Campground is an attempt to put collaborative music listening first. I have been leading design here since Dec. 2020. My work focuses on better ways to share music through live listening parties, better collaborative playlists, & more. We’ve launched, learned, relaunched, and are testing out an improved product.

Turning your timeline into mixtapes /product design + branding
The same team from Campground (feat. above), thought it'd be interesting to create playlists from online places you already hang out in. One of our 'hack week' experiments checks your Twitter timeline for any songs posted. You end with a sharable mixtape you and can even preview the songs on the micro-site. We created a functional version but didn't launch this as we pivoted to targeting fan groups more than friend groups.

Curing hangovers and tossing aliens /web branding agency
Check out those waaAAAVvvy lines above and the ufo riding alien below! I spent the last half of 2020 at Zero Studios making the internet have a little bit more personality. There I helped design mostly e-commerce sites for new and young brands. From landing pages to 404s, my prototypes helped our team & clients make more informed design decisions.

Launching The Black Yearbook /art e-commerce
I designed & built an e-commerce site for The Black Yearbook—helping the book sell out within a week. The site aims to be quiet and smooth, allowing the art to stand up and welcome you.

Giving climbers fresh air /web design
Rock climbing shoes can smell so so bad. This causes climbers to replace their shoes and odor-soiled gear too often. Well, climbers without odopac at least.

Odopac is an activated carbon cloth shoe bag eliminating odor contaminating substances. As ½ of odopac, I design, build, and improve our e-commerce site.

Michael Johnston, Jr.
Oh you wanna know more about me? I'm flattered! I lead design at Studio—where we build social software for creatives. My design practice is driven by wanting to better understand human perception and aesthetic theory. You can find my fingerprints on a few apps and sites, but sometimes they slip off screens.
