Welcome to the site. JustinThompsonVisuals.com is the home of Chicago’s Professional Visual Artist / Motion Designer / VJ and Content Producer Justin Thompson – a visual pioneer currently specializing in 3D Projection Mapping, LED Installation and Programming, Multi-Screen Visual Installation and Custom Content Creation.

Justin spent a good portion of his professional career traveling the world nonstop with various bands including spending a number of years with Chicago’s Fall Out Boy and another two years with pop punk leaders Blink-182 designing custom live LED and projection content for the stage, editing daily content for the web, for DVD, directing their music videos and shooting photography. Justin settled down at a marketing and advertising agency back home in Chicago where he spent just over a year as their lead editor and motion designer then went on to create a first ever of-its-kind permanent 3D projection mapping installation at Chicago’s #1 nightclub and #3 rooftop in the world ROOF on theWit. Justin handled concept, creation, integration and continued content development on the system while VJing – live mixing his custom made visuals- with live DJ performances on the weekends. Justin has since moved on to create visuals for new clients including Diplo, RedBull, The Underground, and is pitching new visual installations to a few hand chosen venues and hotels in Chicago. Justin is also in the process of publishing a book of photography from his time with Fall Out Boy.
