No matter what your graphic design project is, I’d love to hear from you so hit me up!

My clients say…

  • I commissioned Mr Haru to create the branding for Barcraft Consulting. We worked closely together to shape the final product. I found Johnny a breeze to work with – very prompt and good with ideas. I am very happy with the end result and will definitely work with him again in the future.

    CEO + Mixologist - Barcraft Consultants
  • We needed a professional graphic designer who was able to understand the direction of where we wanted to take our company and Johnny understood this.  We went through several local graphic designers but found that none of them were able to produce the results we wanted.  Johnny is very professional and an excellent graphic designer.  He maintained constant communication with us through the entire process and was able to manoeuvre through our product requests with ease and skill.  I would recommend him to anyone who requires high quality design work

  • In the beginning we were using another illustrator but weren’t happy with the final results.  I went to Johnny and asked him to improve the initial designs we received and the results were very, very good.  He refined and improved the entire product line character line-up and we were all happy with the result.  Everyone loves the characters and we have even started creating full size 3D models and mascot costumes as a result.  Great work.

  • Johnny understood our business and my brief completely and produced a website of which we are very proud of – and one which works! He was particularly patient with my non-technical abilities and I am pleased to say that I can now update and manage our website easily and confidently. I can highly recommend Johnny Haru as a graphic and web designer.

  • I gave Johnny Haru our design brief detailing our concept and ideas for our new company logo. He took our brief and designed a modern, artistic and intelligent graphic referencing our company name and our core goals for educating youths in Shanghai. We are very pleased with the results and will continue to send more design work his way! Thanks very much Johnny!

  • Johnny has worked as a designer with my firm for more than two years. During this time he has demonstrated a deep knowledge of the intricacies of corporate image and marketing. Johnny is knowledgeable about the needs of his clients and demonstrates well-developed communication skills with our company. Both I and my colleagues view Johnny as an excellent resource and asset to our firm. I would recommend him for positions for any company seeking to develop or improve their organisation’s corporate image.

  • As well as being an excellent percussionist and drummer Johnny is a very talented graphic designer.  He came up with an original logo that combined elements of music and a stylish reference to the letter “A” in my name.  I am very happy with the result and also the website.  He put it together quickly and it was exactly what I was looking for.  Thanks Johnny!

  • I discussed my bar project with Johnny early in the construction phase and told him that I wanted to do something unique and clever using different types of monkeys in different situations and different time periods drawing on fine art as a reference. What he came up with was excellent and I often get comments from our patrons on how great they look. I would not hesitate recommending Johnny for any creative design projects.
