Our Team

John Owen

Owner / Art Director

 

Janel Smith

Business Manager / Designer / Social Media Manager

Janel joined the Johnnyo Design team in 2020 after 15 years in the aviation industry. God was calling her to something different career-wise, and the pandemic ended up being the catalyst for that. She keeps our team from going off the rails by managing all aspects of the business — from communications to estimating and invoicing and everything in between.

Patrick Herbert

Lead Brand Designer / Lead Web Designer

Patrick interned with us through high school and college and joined the team in 2012 after earning his undergraduate degree at the University of Texas at Dallas. Patrick is the creative genius behind most of our branding and web design & development projects.

Noe DeLaCruz

Lead Digital Marketer

Noe joined our team in December 2019 after gaining valuable experience with two Houston area digital marketing agencies. He helps our clients by making sure their brand and online messaging are optimized and seen by their intended audience — and expertly works to convert those audiences into customers.

Eric Dunlap

Social Media Manager

Eric joined our team in 2014 as a social media account manager and expertly manages our clients’ social media accounts. With an extensive creative background as an artist / illustrator / cartoonist — not to mention his theater and performing arts experience — Eric brings big talent to our team.

Laura Cardenas

Designer / Digital Marketer

Laura first joined our team as an intern in the summer of 2019 between semesters at UTSA. She helped us with capturing social media content and got some experience maintaining WordPress websites — and she shined brightly. After returning to school, she worked in a similar role for the university as she completed her degree. We are thrilled to have her back in a part-time role.
