Mark Johnson

Founder + Designer

Mark’s professional journey reads like a veritable rollercoaster ride of excitement, zigzagging through the fascinating realms of fashion, brand identity, color therapy training and web design. His experiences in these diverse fields have given him a fresh perspective on the intricate art of visual imprint and brand strategies.

Mark’s branding odyssey commenced back in the late 90s, when he honed his fashion chops under the guidance of none other than the legendary Gianni and Donatella Versace, from 1997 to 1999. His transition to digital media was seamless, and he served as the Art Director for a groundbreaking project at Big Time Productions, in collaboration with MTV from 1999 to 2001, where he was first exposed to the burgeoning world of web design.

Mark’s unique and innovative approach to web design was an instant hit, inspiring him to spearhead the redesign of the look, feel, and navigation of MTV Latin America’s website channel, resulting in a sleek new website UIX that elevated the user experience to another level. Before long, he became the go-to design consultant for the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, and Lady Gaga, renowned for his ability to diagnose and cure cluttered, convoluted, and superfluous web pages.

Mark’s success as a branding and web design expert stems from his innate understanding of the value of a distinctive brand identity, and the imperative of standing out in crowded markets. His designs have transformed struggling businesses into thriving success stories, imbuing them with new vitality and vigour.

Mark’s outlook on websites is refreshingly organic – he views them as living, breathing entities, born from the union of client and creator. It’s no surprise, then, that he combined his web design and branding acumen to launch Bionic Egg back in August 2001, which continues to occupy the cutting edge of design and branding innovation after 22 years.

Stephanie Friedman

Creative Writer

I have been working as a PR specialist and copywriter for almost twenty years in the personal health, exercise, entertainment, tech and consumer fields. Before that I worked at WPIX TV (NYC) in media relations and from there went on as a publicist/ad copywriter for Esquire Magazine. I then entered the corporate arena doing public relations and copy work for such clients as Ecotrin, Nestle’s Crunch, Netjets (a Warren Buffett company) Pillsbury, Root Candles and Zuvo Water with The Spiralgroup and the five star Leela Hotels in India. I am currently part of the Bionic Egg web design team, working on copy for Bionic Egg clients: Massena Lab timepieces, Flavordent toothpaste, The PPL Events Company amongst others.

Previous clients have included the launch of the Zuvo Water Filtration System, The Downs Discs and The Spin & Go Cleaning System, and as the personal publicist for NBA trainer Ed Downs. Recent tech clients have included Airpush, Shopular, Nickel and TuneGo, where I fine-tuned web copy in addition to my PR work.

My contacts in the personal health and fitness areas are extensive, and I was instrumental in publicizing Nestles’ Walk Across America. And recently my success in launching the Downs Discs Core Fitness System developed by Ed Downs personal trainer to such superstar athletes as Alex Rodriguez, and Carlos Boozer and members of The Miami Heat. In addition to top website placements and booking national and local TV appearances, the buzz generated for this product, helped create interest from the QVC Network where it went on to sell out.

I am innovative, adept and collaborative. Headlines, ad copy, social media, press releases , client profiles, promo and ad copy are just some of what I bring to the table.
