Design in the Desert

For the month of August, a series of guest posters will be filling in on DWL with daily posts. Today’s posts come to you from designer Jason Johnson of Nomadic. For more from Jason, be sure to follow him on Dribbble. Enjoy!

When I moved to Phoenix a few years ago I didn’t know much about any of the design work coming out of this area. I’ve discovered that there are a lot of very talented local artists. I found a few projects that I really like, everything from packaging to street art that will give you a taste of the city.
