A LITTLE ABOUT ME

I mean, you scrolled this far

Hello, again! My name is John “The Wingless” Burnett, and this is my talent showcase (think non-professional portfolio). Professionally, I am a User Interface Artist (UI Artist) and User Experience Designer (UX Designer) in the entertainment and video game industry. I have been an in-house artist for Midway Games, Electronic Arts, id Software. I have also been the UI / UX Director at Glu Mobile. These days I run my own firm and have worked with companies like Activision, Microsoft and Google – as well as more Indies and Startups than I can count!

 

I started this site in early 2000 while I was in college and have been learning and building ever since. My skill sets over the years have grown into an eclectic assemblage. Art, music, acting, writing, photography, coding, design… it really is an incredible time to be a Renaissance person because I can share these works with you.

 

Feel free to explore, I’m always expanding and building around here (when I’m not swamped being a video game developer!). Thank you so much for visiting, and I look forward to inspiring you.
