Kind Words...

I sought out John to create a comprehensive brand and website for my business. John’s work exceeded my expectations. He was receptive to my comments, demonstrated interest in my field, and created a product that helps to define myself, my practice, and my business.John’s work was truly impeccable, it was clear he conducted thorough research and he impressed me with his knowledge, not only of web design and branding, but of the specifics important to my field of work. I know my business will greatly benefit due to John’s creative, thoughtful and professional work.

¡Hola!


I am John Hatherly, a Texas-born designer, artist, illustrator, typophile, & brand strategist living in Chicago.



I've had an interesting life so far, and there's not much I'd change, given the chance. I've lived in 5 states, played an 8 hour tennis match, kicked a shark while surfing, played a perfect game of pool, saved 2 people's lives (not at the same time), studied Mathematics & Economics at Loyola University-Chicago, ran a marathon without training, co-fronted a hip hop group, and unknowingly played "Marco Polo" with a cop. In my defense, my eyes were closed... I've spent countless hours in museums,restaurants, lectures & bars . I've seen many sunsets... and sunrises. The point of all this? I don't believe good work happens in a vacuum. Design is not a nine-to-five job, it is my window to the world. My work is the sum of my experiences, observations & reflections, laid out in a plea for wonderment.

I'm currently working on my first exhibition titled, "IAMI", an investigation of the relationship between gender and color theory, and am always open to discussing new projects.





What I Do

I've always been multi-disciplinary...

How does pipe-fitting, delivering packages, and stirring Manhattans make me a better designer? I make atypical connections between problems and solutions, and I have a deep-seated ability to empathize.
