Hey, I’m John Cody Morris. I go by “Cody”, but I’ll respond to John if you insist. I’m a former USAF Intelligence Analyst that specialized in nuclear bomber capabilities and weapons systems (specifically the B-2A Stealth Bomber) …turned Visual Designer. Quite the change, I know. To the credit of my time in the Air Force, attention to detail, discipline, and a solid work ethic are a few of the core tenets I’ve been able to implement into my design process.
I graduated from Texas State University with my BFA in Communication Design and currently reside in the Austin, Texas area. I have a passion for UX Design, Branding, Motion Design, and Illustration.
Apart from design (and contrary to my intense past life), I love going on adventures with my wife and tending to the zoo we are establishing at our entirely too small apartment.
I’m a husband, beer lover, pet-dad (23 fish, 2 cats, 1 dog, 1 hamster), avid tree-climber, gamer, and friend.
