Although Michael Johnson began designing typefaces at fifteen, he didn’t pursue a standard design education. Instead, he worked his way across the world, learning all aspects of design, art direction, advertising, and branding for ten years. He then started his own brand consultancy, Johnson Banks in 1992. In three decades, the world-renowned brand consultancy has worked with major brands and institutions such as Mozilla, the University of Cambridge, Acumen, UNICEF, and many more.
Michael is an Honorary Professor at Glasgow School of Art and is a guest speaker at many renowned design events like Typo Berlin and Pecha Kucha. He has won many iconic design prizes, including seven yellow and one black pencil from D&AD. He has also published several books such as Problem Solved, Branding In Five and a Half Steps, and Now Try Something Weirder.
