Tucker Johnston creative director / designer
Tucker Johnston graduated from the University of Kansas with a BFA in Design and attended film school at the University of Southern California, where he studied under famed Warner Bros. film director, Andre de Toth (House of Wax).
Johnston started out as an art department intern at The Wolfe Co. in Hollywood, co-designing music videos for Blue Oyster Cult (Shooting Shark) and The Stray Cats (Look at that Cadillac). Working his way up through the art department ranks, Johnston soon became an art director and property master working on feature film and television productions for companies including Walt Disney Pictures, PBS, Tri-Star Pictures and Playboy, working with such well-known film/TV personalities as Robert Mitchum, Lily Tomlin, Jerry Stiller, Rhonda Fleming, Tony Plana and Virginia Madsen.
During this time, Johnston teamed-up with Production Designer Rob Sissman and started TWO DUDES FROM WYOMING, an L.A.-based art direction company. The pair designed and art directed numerous feature film and television productions, including two Disney Channel series', SECRET BODYGUARD and MY LIFE AS A BABYSITTER. They designed TV commercials and industrial films for clients including Apple, Hyundai, Honda and The Sharper Image, as well as designing music videos for groups including R.E.O. Speedwagon, Eric Burden and The Manhattan Transfer.
Johnston thoroughly enjoyed helping bring other filmmaker's visions to the screen, but he also had his own creative vision to express. It was time to make his own feature film. The result was BLOOD SALVAGE , a quirky, atmospheric horror thriller starring Ray Walston (Fast Times At Ridgepoint High), John Saxon (A Nightmare On Elm Street) and Heavyweight Champion Evander Holyfield, who was also one of the Executive Producers of the film. BLOOD SALVAGE was nominated for "Drive-In Movie Critic" Joe Bob Briggs's Golden Hubcap Award for "Best Movie Bad Guy" and has since developed a cult-following among horror fans, thanks to fan blogs and social media groups like www.facebook.com/pages/Blood-Salvage/117525641613164
In 1995, with major technological advances happening in graphic design and digital imaging software, Johnston made the decision to leave Hollywood and set-up his "little design studio" in his hometown of Kansas City. The decision proved to be a sound one. Twenty years later, Tucker Johnston Design is still creating promotional designs and imagery for small businesses and entrepreneurs around the country.
