Jeff Johnson has spent a lifetime in the Southern California events industry. Jeff’s grandfather owned a flower shop, his Mom owned a chain of shops, and his Dad and brothers managed the famous Mark’s Garden’s in Los Angeles. Jeff began his career within the family businesses but quickly branched out to the larger events industry. He spent many years as a highly sought after freelance artist, working on events such as the Academy Awards Governor’s Ball, the Grammy Awards, World Music Awards, and Disney Studio presentations. He has also serviced some of the most prestigious private residences in Aspen, Beverly Hills, Malibu, Laguna Beach, Palm Springs and Palm Desert.
After many years of paying his dues as a freelancer, Jeff co-founded one of the premier event design companies in the Southern California region, called Square Root. He boasted a client base that included the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas; Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel; Montage Hotels in Beverly Hills, Laguna Beach and Deer Valley; the St. Regis in Dana Point; and a high end shopping center in Tokyo.
Jeff’s designs have been covered by a wide range of media outlets, including shows on Bravo, HGTV, and the Style channel. His services have been contracted by several fortune 500 companies as well as many of Hollywood’s elite. Some examples of this work can be found on www.squarerootdesigns.com.
Jeff recently sold this business in December 2011, after a decade of success, in order to return his wife to her beloved home and to raise his daughters in a culture rich with history and diversity. He is now thrilled to call the beautiful nation’s capitol and Chesapeake Bay area home.
