Once upon a time, Mark Johnson became so fed up with the dull, monotonous, copycat websites clogging the internet that he decided to launch his own branding and web design business. Well aware that good designers were few and far between, he aimed to forge an entirely new aesthetic for web design. His initial clientele came mainly from the world of fashion and photography, but he soon began working clients from PR, Hospitality, Beauty, e-commerce, and many other industries. Mark’s creations were more than pixels on a screen; they were organic digital life forms, the progeny of client and creator. So when he needed a vivid name to sum up the kinetic dynamism of his design work, one concept commanded his total attention: websites are born of a union between a nurturing mind and digital technology, in a kind of gestation. Eureka! In August 2001, BIONIC EGG was born.
Nearly 17 years later, Bionic Egg is still evolving. The web industry advances at breakneck speeds, yet MARK has maintained his position at the forefront of design and branding innovation. Armed with his dynamic vision and intuition for coming trends, MARK JOHNSON seems to know the future of the digital space before it unfolds.

Mark was first exposed to web design while serving as the Art Director for an innovative digital media project at BIG TIME PRODUCTIONS in collaboration with MTV.COM. Through the course of this project, MARK was drawn to the website, and his work on its redesign yielded a sleek, enhanced user experience. Once the project launched, MARK turned his attention to consulting for other sites. He had an undeniable knack for diagnosing pages that were cluttered, difficult to navigate, or littered with superfluous info, and he knew exactly how to revamp them to accentuate products and services most effectively. MARK decided to launch his own web design and branding business, in order to share his unique aesthetic with the world. His clientele covered a broad range, including fashion, beauty, music, film, photography, public relations, hospitality, and e-commerce. He understood the value of a distinct brand identity and the necessity of being “set apart” in saturated markets. His design changes elevated; breathed new life into businesses. To him, these websites were more than pixels on the screen; they were organic digital life forms; the progeny of client and creator. In August 2001, Bionic Egg was born. Nearly 17 years later, Bionic Egg is still evolving. The web industry advances at breakneck speeds, yet MARK has maintained his position at the forefront of design and branding innovation.
