Founder & Creative Director

John Muir Whitney

johnJohn has been helping trial attorneys make powerful, persuasive visual presentations in court for 15 years. Having founded Think Twice ten years ago, John wears many hats in the company, but he continues to work as a producer on important cases throughout the country, working with senior litigators at Cooley Godward, Manatt Phelps & Phillips, Munger Tolles & Olson, Sidley Austin Brown & Wood, Townsend Townsend & Crew, and many other firms. John not only consults extensively with each client to develop a strategic plan to meet their goals, but also works closely with the design team to bring their vision to fruition. John frequently works on-site at lengthy trials, but on his rare days off you'll find him relaxing in Sonoma with his family.

Sound Byte:
"I help with the development of concise, memorable, creative and compelling stories - structure, messages and visuals - that move audiences. The most effective way to do this is with a thorough understanding of our client's parameters and goals. Using a consistent approach allows me to apply fresh ideas based on our varied experiences and interests."

Tidbit: 'Colorful Copy'
The use of color is the same as sentence structure. There should be strong foundation colors ("nouns and adjectives"), action or highlight colors (the "verbs"), and a complimentary background palette ("articles" and the rest).

Obiter Dictum

"In litigation, where time is of the essence, the responsiveness and quick turn-around provided by ThinkTwice is a great asset. Even when the deadline for the finished product is very short, I am always confident that ThinkTwice will meet it.  In addition to being highly professional and skilled in their work, ThinkTwice personnel are congenial to work with, and patient with the myriad of changes inherent in preparing graphics for use in litigation. I am consistently pleased with their work."
