“Chacon is the most productive creative professional I’ve ever worked with, an embodiment of Steve Jobs’s rule that “real artists ship.” The breadth of his work includes corporate branding, user interface and experience design, clothing, typography, music, even building renovation. One of his great strengths is that these projects influence and energize each other, so each client benefits from his full creative universe.”
– Matt Holford, Chief Technology Officer, DoSomething.org

Hardships are oftentimes what help to define who we are.
I recall converting my father's blue mechanic overalls into a single-strapped jumpsuit that my brother and I laced with colorful patches. I believe that moment was the plunge of my creative spigot, which has spat vigorously ever since. Through my creative pursuits I pay tribute to my brother Chakaras Johnson, who instilled in me the power to fearlessly be myself.
