My name is John Alan Sperry, I am a Freelance Graphic Designer and Music Composer from Nova Scotia, Canada.

I have over ten years of professional experience working with clients locally and nationally, everyone from baby startups to established large brands.

I am equally comfortable working with you in person or remotely to help you develop your vision. My pre-press background ensures you'll receive properly prepared files for printing.

I was highly involved with this project. I worked with the client to help them demystify the quoting and production processes. These can often be confusing.

I communicated with the label manufacturer for quality control purposes, making sure there were no errors during printing.

Canadian action figures

I was the chief designer on this project with national television reach and which attracted attention on a global level (via our website). We created and sold thousands of Canadian Armed Forces action figures. Proceeds went to charity.

Production dies had to be created for producing these figures, all of which cost thousands of dollars, great attention to detail was critical to the success of this endeavor.
