John Somers – the Don of design

John works from CARBON DESIGN company, the Winchester-based graphic design company he founded in 2012 having worked in advertising and design commhttp://www.carbon.uk.com/unication since 1989, when he joined Tandem Design in Southampton on completion of a course in graphic design and communication at the Faculty of Art and Design, Southampton Institute (now Southampton Solent University).

In 1994 he joined Linguarama, and then on to Powertech (1997), and MMA & Associates (2002). In 2004 he was head-hunted by Cradduck Design Co., where he was Senior Designer and Associate Director.

From his studio at CARBON he masterminds creative and results-driven design. He is very human though – his favourite ‘likes’, aside from his family, are golf (at which he excels, no joke), squash, Formula 1, almost anything with an engine, anything with an engine that flies, bass guitar, Metallica (the group), photography, gadgets and techy stuff.
