My name is John Dorn and I have been designing for print, packaging, plastic and other substrates since around 1984. One of the last to be taught old school on the drawing board, with t-square, letraset type, wax, hot glue, blue line and exacto knife; torturously setting type by hand and working in the dark. UW Eau Clair installed a computer lab the year after I graduated. That old hands-on knowledge is priceless now. I managed my digital transition in the 80's. Now I successfully combine traditional skills with the latest technology to solve problems and get the job done.

My commercial art and other galleries include work for Georgia Pacific, Carver Yachts, Central Aquatics and more. You may notice some packaging and print work in addition to web design projects. If you have a moment take a peek at my gallery of disc golf designs and illustrations spanning the last 15 years. What started out as a way to get free disc golf equipment has transformed into a substantial body of work that might be one of the largest in the sport of disc golf.

Mural work occupied about 5 years of my life from 1991 to 1996 and I am in the process of uploading some of that work. It is hard to get good images of big work. I really miss working in public and making big art!

Finally, the sculpture and metals pieces are very recent work from school since I went back to school to get my Art Ed teaching certification (K-12) at UW-M after my two sons came to live with me full time @June of 2009.

Feel free to call or email for illustration, design or web projects.
