MARK JOHNSON’s professional journey spans the gamut of the fashion industry, brand identity, color therapy & web design, shaping his fresh perspective on visual imprint and brand strategies. His initial experiences in advertising came about when he worked as a design model for Gianni Versace in 1997, as he completed designing his very last Men’s Collection in Milan. After Gianni’s unfortunate murder, Mark continued working with Donatella Versace, as she designed the new men’s collections to follow.
He 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, in 2000. While working on this project, he was motivated to redesign the MTV website channel.
His efforts resulted in a sleek website that enhanced the users’ experience. After the project’s successful launch, Mark became a design consultant for other websites.
His undeniable knack for diagnosing pages that were cluttered, difficult to navigate, or littered with superfluous info, soon led to a number of satisfied clients. He developed a distinct reputation for knowing exactly how to revamp and organize web pages to accentuate products and services more effectively.
Mark’s success as a web design expert stems from his deep understanding of the value of a distinct brand identity and the necessity of being “set apart” in saturated markets. His designs have been credited for elevating and breathing new life into stagnant businesses.
Mark sees websites as more than just pixels on the screen. He considers them to be organic digital life forms; the progeny of client and creator. Mark combined his web design and branding knowledge to launch Bionic Egg in August 2002.
17 years later, Bionic Egg is still evolving, in line with the web industry advancing at breakneck speeds. The company continues to maintain its position at the forefront of design and branding innovation. Armed with his dynamic vision and intuition for coming trends, Mark seems to know the future of the digital space before it unfolds.

“I love beautiful images, creativity, expression, and art. I started shooting fashion, but I pride myself in being able to find beauty in anything and everything. As long as I’m working with a great team who is excited about what we’re doing I never have any doubt that the finished product will be amazing.”
