Creating Visuals Day or Night

Because I work for you, and not a third party, I can provide a full range of graphic services at a lower rate. I’m available to you, day or night, because my office is always nearby. Accuracy and efficiency are increased because our communication doesn’t go through extra channels. By directly working together we create what you want, on time, and in your budget.

Whenever I came up with a new idea, but didn’t have the time or funds for prototyping, I knew I could go to John to start bringing it to life. He can take a rough sketch and create graphics or animation that look real and help get the concept in front of potential customers and investors. You know it’s done Continue Reading...
Working with John has always been easy. He quickly adapts to understand our products and industry. He breaks down all our data to build an animated representation that is easy to understand and looks great. He routinely makes suggestions that improve and amplify the messaging. The end result has been an important asset for both our marketing and training purposes....
John Gera has been a valuable resource of ours for some time now. His animations were first used in the late 1990’s. More recently, he aids DCI in creating full length animations and quality videos that are used domestically and internationally to train and market our products with great success....
John Gera is Skycast Solutions' "Swiss Army Knife" when it comes to our design needs. From his full design and management of our website, advertising design, collateral creation, and the full gambit of our trade show booth and displays, John does it all. But it's not the breadth of the work he does for us that makes him so valuable Continue Reading...
John Gera is a designer in the Seattle-Tacoma area with over twenty years of experience in digital design. Starting out as a “Multimedia Designer", he worked on design and development for projects ranging from children’s entertainment to corporate marketing and training.
In 2005, after the use of 3D and video production increased, his interests grew in visual effect work. He took on a position of “CG/VFX Artist”, creating visuals for TV commercials and independent film.
By 2010, with a heavy decline of visual effect work in the area, he relied on his previous experience to become more diversified. As a “Visual Designer” he made use of his design and development skillset to work on multi-faceted 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. He continues to provide the same level of quality and service he performed elsewhere, but at increased availability and lower prices.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
