John Skead is graphic designer and typographer. In his degree, his practice paired graphic design with photography, typography and collage; graduating with first class honours. His previous education background is in fine art and architecture, both of which influence his creative approach, being both logical and thorough, whilst always seeking the potential for artistic flair. He strives for clarity in communication and a strong narrative in his work.

After his degree, he was accepted for an internship in Amsterdam at VBAT, part Superunion's design agency. At VBAT, he tempered the raw creative approach taught at university with consistency, refinement and technical ability – also adding animation skills to his repertoire. He has worked on multiple live briefs at his ongoing time there, as well as seeking more self-initiated work outside of the studio.
