Multidiscipled and empathetic designer with a great work ethic and jolly personality.

John Chaka

Howdy, my name is John Chaka. I wrangle pixel-based products in West Texas. I have a wide range of experience and knowledge across various platforms and audiences. Completing projects is fun, but I thrive in the process. I've found that working hard indeed pays off, but smart solutions cost less.

Hey, remember when users were called "people"?
