Dave HandmanFounder & CEO, Sustineo

John Wolfe Compton is our branding expert and conduit to extraordinary client facing documents. His ability to organize information in a beautiful and concise way is phenomenal. You won’t find a better company that is capable of addressing your branding needs.

Andy AltmanFounder, GigTown

John is one of my favorite people to work with. Period. The best thing about him is his creativity. I normally hit him with a request like "Hey John, I need something cool for XYZ project, and I need it soon!" With that, he's off and running and he comes back with an eye-popping design, right on time. I never know exactly what to expect but I always know it's going to be awesome.

Keith RolleFounder & Winemaker, Gianni Buonomo Vintners

John created a brand-new site for me that came in ON TIME and ON BUDGET. Responsive, approachable, professional, creative and 100% capable of bringing your brand to life. Very open minded and willing to collaborate. 5 Stars +

Camille Joy DeCampFounder & Partner, Slattery, Sobel & DeCamp, LLP

John designed the website for our firm. He was a true professional who listened to our needs and addressed our concerns with efficiency and professionalism. John had creative ideas to offer while meeting our goals. He was a real pleasure to work with. We will continue to use John to manage our website and we recommend him to others.

Holly LoseyMarketing Director, Cafe Sevilla

I've worked with plenty of designers through the years and John is at the top of my list! He is equal parts talented, organized, proactive and on time and a true pleasure to work with. He is my "go-to" man for creative collateral, print ad design work and we most recently did a complete overhaul of our website. To say that we were thrilled with the results is an understatement! I highly recommend John for your marketing needs!

Matt CaputoCo-Founder & Partner, SD Local Search

We were fortunate enough to have John design our website. We provided him a rough concept and watched him build us a beautifully designed website - we never could have come close to what he did on our own. I highly recommend John for your digital marketing needs. Not only talented, but very friendly and easy to work with too. 10/10.

Dr. Fiona ChatwinExecutive and Artistic Director, Villa Musica

Our new website is awesome! John spent significant time with us discussing our needs and advising us on different options. As a non profit, our main concerns were price and messaging. John listened and came up with a tailor-made plan to keep costs down and streamline the communication of our mission and vision.

Chad SmithDirector, San Diego Crew Classic

John took on a big project for us at the San Diego Crew Classic: a top to bottom rebranding and a new website to go with it. The logo is amazing, people love it and tell us as much all the time. It looks great on shirts, on our site, on our stationary. It connects to all the design ideas we wanted. The increased merchandise sales we saw this year can be credited to John's logo. The website is a dream and we also get tons of great feedback on it. The work speaks for itself.

Luke WaltonOwner, Rower Academy

John spent the time to learn what we were trying to accomplish online in our business, and from there, built out the website. The design is fantastic. The customer service is stellar. Communication is excellent. And the ability that John has to take a brand idea and/or website idea and refine it, improve it, and execute it is next level. We are very happy with the branding and website creation John has provided us.

Jamie ShanksPrincipal

John and I had a detailed phone conversation where he asked questions about our company philosophy, mission and culture. He dug into why we chose the name we did in an effort to come up with a fitting logo and “look”. He presented several options to us and we were immediately drawn to one that fit us perfectly. From there John laid out the project steps in detail as well as a timeline. It was very easy to follow and John delivered on all fronts. John was excellent to work with and so talented.


Thanks for stopping by.
