About

john-gera-portrait

John Gera is a designer in the Seattle-Tacoma area with over twenty years of experience in digital design. Starting out in 1995, he worked on design and development for projects ranging from children’s entertainment to corporate marketing and training.

In 2005, with an increased use of 3D and video production, his interest grew in visual effects, eventually creating visuals for TV commercials and independent film.

By 2010, with a heavy decline of visual effect work in the area, he returned his focus to visual design, working on multifaceted marketing and branding campaigns.

For most of his career he worked from within production companies. But in 2012, he ventured out on his own to begin working independently. This gave him greater flexibility to provide fast, experienced, high quality design services at affordable pricing.

Work History

Over 20 years of experience in digital design. Whether it’s video production, 3D animation, print or web design you can count on me to deliver what you’re looking for.

Performance

It’s easy to work hard when you love what you do. If necessary, I will work any time of the day or night for you. Working on simultaneous projects never fazes me.

Location

I’m located in the Seattle-Tacoma area, but that doesn’t affect my ability to take on work from other locations. No matter the distance, I make it a point to work with your schedule and always meet or beat deadlines.

Process

I listen to your needs and help guide the creative process. I use my years of experience to consult, inform, and design what I think works. But ultimately, I let you be the boss, this is your investment after all.

Equipment

I have many high powered machines on hand to aid in network rendering. The main workstation has 16 CPU cores, 128 GB of memory, High-end GPU, SSD and RAID performance. The on-site server offers client FTP access and has redundant daily backup to keep your projects safe.

Software

For 3D I use the latest version of Autodesk 3DS Max. For just about everything else - the Adobe Creative Cloud suite. With active subscriptions and constant updates, I am always using today’s latest software to get your job done right and fast.
