Hello, you beautiful prospective Mentee, you!
My name is John Burnett, a 15-year User Interface Artist (UI Artist), User Experience Designer (UX Designer), Web Designer, Graphic Designer and Art Director in the video game and entertainment Industry.
I’ve worked as an in-house artist with AAA companies all my career: Midway Games, Electronic Arts, Id Software - and I was the UI / UX Director of Glu Mobile’s Seattle Studio. Under my own personal studio in downtown Chicago, I’ve worked with companies like Activision, Google & Microsoft on everything from 2 Call of Duty games to Wasteland 3 - and I’ve worked with more Indies and startups than I can even count (12)!
Which brings us to you! I love teaching, guiding and chatting about all this stuff - and I’d love to help you get an unfair advantage in User Interface and User Experience Design. I’ve made console, PC, and mobile games, web sites, wireframes, icons, animations, effects, video - and I can teach you all of that hot mess with a smile. I can help with:
-User Experience and User Interface projects
-Personal and Team Projects
-Any specific request or areas that you want to improve, let me know and we’ll see what we can do!
Our Mentoring sessions will happen over Skype with share-screen (so I can help with paintovers & live critiques!).

D... did that do anything for you? Great! Then, let my oh-so-chill but focused mentorship and incredibly inspirational attitude be your guiding light.
Don’t wait to jump-start that tomorrow you keep dreaming about. Make it happen today. The button, hit the button! :P
