Russell Johnson

Art Director

Russell Johnson

Creativity is the common thread in Russell’s otherwise unconventional career path. After studying photography at Utah State University, he followed his passions while working in various positions at the Alta Ski Resort. He soon found himself craving a more consistent creative outlet and began working for a local screen printing shop. There, he met the Adcentives West team, which extended an invitation to come and help build the company’s in-house screen printing and embroidery department. After years of leaning over the shoulders of graphic designers in that role, Russell decided to try his own hand, thus launching his career as a self-taught graphic artist. When he’s not busy sharing his creative talents, Russell still enjoys returning to his roots for some skiing at Alta, where he’s had a season pass since the 1980s.
