My name is John Zabawa and I am a graphic designer, painter, and art director based in Chicago, Illinois. I currently work at FCB Chicago as an Associate Designer.

I have worked with a diverse range of clients developing skills in branding and identity, editorial art direction, print, illustration, image creation, brand guidelines, experiential design, typography, packaging, photography, photo styling, presentation design, and brand naming.

I am passionate about building new design concepts and art direction ideas for existing and new brands, by providing impactful briefs with concrete creative solutions.

If you would like to know more information or need help on any projects you may have, please get in touch. I am always open to collaborations. If you are interested in working together feel free to contact me. Thank you!
