Frank Johnson serves as a bridge between n e t a’s design, development, and content divisions, often acting as translator and advocate for the considerations of other teams and technologies that aren’t in the room per se, or may not be at play yet, bringing cohesive and thoughtful UX-centric digital platforms to fruition. While at n e t a, he has learned the language of designers, developers, editors, as well as users allowing him to not only help implement across these languages, but empower our clients with comprehensive visual guides too, that successfully translates the complexities of digital innovation.

Frank joined neta in August 2019 after developing several distinct disciplines. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s in City & Regional Planning. While at OSU he helped found a DIY tech group called The Maker Club, that still runs today, and was one of 20 Buckeye Leadership Fellows studying leadership in business. He wrote his thesis on urban environmental data and fell in love with web design, creating pages to share his findings. After graduation he served Iridium Satellite in Washington, DC as a Marketing and Web Coordinator, and was lucky enough to design the patch for their final rocket launch, Iridium-8. He made the leap to NYC and joined n e t a in the same two weeks in 2019.

Frank is a boondock kid (think “Into the Wild”) with Appalachian roots. He spent most summer nights camping with friends at the local reservoir, and always knew he’d either end up living in the wilderness or the metropolis. He absolutely loves hiking the hills of Washington Heights and grabbing coffee after.

In his own words…

My favorite part of working at n e t a is that I feel encouraged to build tools for myself and others. Whether it’s a visual ‘how to’ document that needs to be re-imagined, a team process that needs evolving, or an opportunity for automation, at n e t a it feels like nothing is kept too sacred to change, hence the name.

That empowerment is made possible by the mutual respect that our colleagues give to one another. It has been amazing to be a part of the process of building things at n e t a, because it feels like we’re creating new ways of working together dynamically, while we build great digital platforms and strategies.
