John Creagh

John is City Print’s Studio Manager. A graphic designer by profession, he has spent 30 years plying his trade, including 17 years as a freelance designer. John believes design plays a key role in shaping society and how we see the world. His design philosophy is an inclusive one – it’s about the customer, and while John’s happy to deliver to a brief, he likes to involve the client in the design process as much as possible.

John loves to research the many and varied projects he’s involved in, and when it comes to executing he is accurate, fast, and excels in the detail. John holds a Diploma in Design from Wellington School of Design, and his passion for his work is as fresh as the day he graduated. He loves gardening and landscaping, is a keen fisherman, and enjoys oil painting as a creative balance to the structured design process.
