Plaid Design is an art & design studio specializing in mod pop art, film posters, logos/branding, and the whole "much, much more" thing, all by award-winning pop artist John Lathrop. John's mixed media digital artwork combines hand-drawn illustrations with graphic design elements, using bright, rich colors and bold superimposed silhouettes with a smooth, clean shading style that is both retro and modern, breathing new life into the classic and current pop culture subjects referenced.

Whatever your art or graphic design needs are, Plaid Design can take care of them for you. Hopefully. Listen, if we can't, won't, or just don't want to, we'll let you know that just ain't our bag (not in those words, we promise). We'll even let you know BEFORE you pay! Please reach out anytime to discuss serious art/design inquiries.
