Work History

Over 25 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.

Performance

It’s easy to work hard when you love what you do. I will work any time of the day or night for you. Working on simultaneous projects never fazes me.

Location

I am located south of Seattle but have clients as far away as New York. No matter the distance, I make it a point to work with your schedule and always meet or beat deadlines.

Process

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.

Equipment

Multiple high-powered machines are on site to aid in network rendering, including the main workstation which has 64 CPU cores. SSD and RAID storage is backed up daily to keep your projects safe and secure.

Software

For 3D I use the latest version of Autodesk 3DS Max and V-Ray. For just about everything else - the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite. With active subscriptions and constant updates, I am always using today’s latest software.

The History of John Gera Design

John Gera has been a designer in the Puget Sound area for over twenty-five years. Starting his career in 1995 he worked on visual design projects ranging from children’s entertainment to corporate marketing and training.

Over time his use of 3D and video production increased, and with it, his desire to shift his career towards visual effects. By 2005, he was working primarily on visuals for TV commercials and independent films.

Five years later, with a heavy decline of visual effect work in the area, he had to rely on his roots in visual design. It was from this point forward that his career would be diversified, utilizing all his digital design capabilities for use in corporate marketing and branding campaigns.

For half of his career, he had been employed off and on by production companies. That all changed for good in late 2012, when he ventured out on his own to begin working independently. This gave him the freedom and flexibility to provide a full range of professional-quality design services at affordable pricing.

This visual effect reel was produced in 2012 just as the transition to working independently had begun. It contains 3D animation, video production and visual effects from a handful of years leading up to 2012.

John is exactly what you want when it comes to making great content. He’s an open and inspired collaborator, technically brilliant, and brings a deep sense of ownership to the project. In short, he is dependably delightful to work with and his work is dependably excellent.

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.

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 right when people assume you already have the product ready based on John’s renderings.

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 - it's the quality, speed, and utter professionalism that make his stand apart from the rest.

Skycast Solutions
In addition to logo design, branding and marketing materials, John has helped me create several successful websites for my businesses. He made the entire process easy and the sites were online in no time. John listens well and works directly with you to guide the look and feel, but he also makes sure you have a chance to provide creative input. He is always there to answer questions when a technical issue pops up and he quickly makes changes when requested.

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.
