What John Bielenberg does best is help companies, and their people, find the courage, and the sense of humor to consider whole new, “wrong” ways of bringing their stories, ideas, and innovations out into the world. Once they’ve seriously considered these options, it makes everything easier, including making those options real, viable ways of talking about their business.
John has won over 250 design awards, was nominated for 2 National Design Awards from the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, served on the AIGA National Board of Directors, and teaches at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art has acquired six of his projects and staged a solo exhibition in 2000.
In addition, John is a member of AGI (Alliance Graphique International) and on the Boards of the Pop!Tech Institute, Waterfall Arts and Swans Island Blankets. He is also the founder and Director of Project M, a summer program designed to teach young people that their work can have a significant and meaningful impact on the world.
