3.7 DESIGNS Leadership

The dandy fine folks you might be working with!

We’re designers, technology mavens, and marketers. What’s that mean for you? We observe, adapt, learn, and listen.  We’re focused on sincere interactions rather than tactics. We provide insightful solutions for our clients and their target audiences. We’re also weird, but in an endearing way.

Lyndsay Johnson

CEO & Design Strategist

Lyndsay has lead a life driven by a love for, well, many things… She’s been playing piano since she was 7 years old, and violin since the 4th grade. Her passion for drawing/painting and graphic design found her a BFA from the University of Michigan School of Art and Design. Her love for the French Language sent her to Paris for 3 months to complete her undergraduate requirements. Her relationship with animals is responsible for her dogs, cats, and horse, Alfred. She currently competes in the equestrian sport of 3-day eventing.

In addition to her formal graphic design education she’s expanded her skills in the last 4 years to front-end web development, user experience design, information architecture, WordPress development, Drupal theming, and some necessary PHP and Javascript.

When she’s not busy conjuring something for 3.7 Designs or riding her horse she’s usually out running, playing in the Dexter Community Orchestra, snowboarding, or spending quality time with her husband and 3.7 Designs Creative Director, Ross Johnson. They live in rural Lodi Township, Ann Arbor, with their German Shepherd, Leica, and cats, Buster and Beamer.
