Tucker Johnston creative director / designer
Tucker Johnston graduated from the University of Kansas with a BFA in Design and attended film school at the University of Southern California, where he studied film production under famed Warner Bros. film director, Andre de Toth (HOUSE OF WAX).
Johnston started out as an art department intern at The Wolfe Co. in Hollywood, co-designing music videos for Blue Oyster Cult and The Stray Cats. Working his way up through the ranks, Johnston soon became an art director and property master working on feature film and television productions for companies including Walt Disney Pictures, PBS, Tri-Star Pictures and Playboy, working with such film/TV personalities as Robert Mitchum, Lily Tomlin, Jerry Stiller, Rhonda Fleming and Virginia Madsen.
Johnston was property manager on the critically-acclaimed Emmy Award-winning PBS movie, SWEET 15 starring Tony Plana, Jenny Gago and Jerry Stiller.
During this time, Johnston teamed-up with Production Designer Rob Sissman and started TWO DUDES FROM WYOMING, an L.A.-based art direction company. The pair designed and art directed numerous feature film and television productions, including The Disney Channel's SECRET BODYGUARD and MY LIFE AS A BABYSITTER. They also designed commercials and industrials for clients including Apple, Hyundai, Honda and The Sharper Image, as well as MTV music videos for groups including R.E.O. Speedwagon, Eric Burden and The Manhattan Transfer.
Johnston thoroughly enjoyed bringing other filmmaker's visions to the screen, but he also had his own creative vision to express. It was time to make his own feature film. The result was BLOOD SALVAGE, a quirky, atmospheric horror thriller starring screen legend Ray Walston (Fast Times At Ridgepoint High), John Saxon (A Nightmare On Elm Street) and Heavyweight Champion Evander Holyfield, who was also one of the Executive Producers. The film was nominated for "Drive-In Movie Critic" Joe Bob Briggs's Golden Hubcap Award for "Best Movie Bad Guy" and has since developed a cult-following among horror fans, thanks in a great part to online fan forums and social media groups like www.facebook.com/pages/Blood-Salvage/117525641613164
In 1995, with major technological advances in graphic design software and digital imaging software, Johnston made the decision to leave the film industry and set-up a cutting-edge graphic design studio in Kansas City. The decision proved to be a sound one. Twenty-three years later, Tucker Johnston Design (originally Graphic Source) is still creating memorable promotional and advertising designs for small businesses and entrepreneurs around the country.
