Hi. My name is John Henry.

My full name is John Henry Müller but you can call me John, John Henry, JH, Jilly or anything else that feels right to you.

I design stuff for work and play. I recently joined a team of 40 talented designers at Hudl as design director. Before Hudl, I designed stuff for a startup called Pack.

Before cofounding Pack, I started a digital product design and development company called What Cheer. Clients included startups (Squidoo, Hayneedle, MindMixer, ProxiBid), large organizations (Union Pacific Railroad, US Department of Energy, Woodmen of the World) and friends (Lifehacker, Silicon Prairie News, Saddle Creek Records, Post Punk Kitchen).

We've also created a few of our own things including Pep Rally, Hot or Cold, Bumble and Selective Perspective Detective Objective.

Before founding What Cheer, I worked as an art director in advertising. Before that, I worked as a lifeguard in swimming trunks.

Sometimes people say nice things about me. Andrew Hyde called me his “design power animal.” Jeffrey Zeldman once consoled my lack of rhythm with “Anyone with that much design talent has to have at least some musical talent too.” Megan Casey said “It's like Christmas every time I get to see new designs from John Henry. He is the most creative person I’ve ever worked with, bar none.” People are nice.

I was born and raised in the midwest. I recently moved back from the San Francisco Bay Area and now live in Benson, Omaha, Nebraska with Ms. Benson and two of the coolest kids you’ll ever meet.

You might recognize my face from the Internet. You can find other digital representations of me on: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Dribbble, GitHub, LinkedIn, MySpace and (of course) Pack.

I like people. You should say hi to me.

Weeeeeeeeeeeee!
John Henry Müller
