John C. Tripp is a graphic designer and art director with 20+ years of experience with publications, advertising agencies, financial service firms and personal projects. His work includes editorial, identity, packaging, and creative direction.
Exhibiting his diverse skills, Tripp has worked with leading financial services and consulting firms such as Deloitte Touche, where he created four-color client proposals.

Publishing is in Tripp’s blood and he has published several small, but influential, magazines. His first “zine”, “Ipso Facto” was an early prototype for today’s music/design magazines. Starting the publication while in college (with Chuck Conner and Stuart Patterson), Tripp moved it to San Francisco. There, he tapped into the city’s music and design culture, covering the nascent hip hop and electronic music scene. He also collaborated with leading graphic artists like Tom Bonauro and Rex Ray. “Ipso Facto” was a pioneer in desktop publishing, being one of the first to use it for 4-color printing.
In Miami Tripp played a critical role with several Miami-based publications. For “Ocean Drive” magazine, Tripp was Advertising Designer for all clients of the magazine in its first year. He was also an Art Director for “Destination Jamaica”, traveling to the island and creating ads for resorts, retailers and restaurants. Tripp also published the music newspaper “Tip”, covering Miami’s burgeoning Afro-Latin and Urban music culture.
Tripp has served numerous clients working with creative agencies such as The Professionals (Operated by Nicole Detko, an advertising industry veteran), Cheryl Roshak Temps and Aquent. For a number of years he worked with Aquent, in San Francisco, Boston and Miami. Tripp was named Aquent’s “Temp of the Year” in Miami for his services.
Like today’s multi-faceted culture Tripp’s work reflects a myriad of influences. Versatility, creativity and experience are strengths he brings to any project. And since technology is a great part of today’s design, his knowledge of computer applications is excellent. He is well versed in both print- and web-oriented applications.
