John Gnotek
Hello, I’m John,
a designer based in Metro Detroit.

As a designer—product, UX, UI, interactive, or visual—I’m a creative problem-solver and innovative futurist. I maintain a fervent aspiration to synthesizing current, established media with emerging technologies—to produce a whole profusion of new interactive experiences: responsive, immersive, augmented, and other new interactive methods—to assist, direct, and engage users.

My specialty is making complexity
simply understood.
