Velgus - Headshot.jpg




Hello! I’m Velgus, otherwise known by my full name “John Velgus” or simply “V”. Welcome to my portfolio site where you can see a selection of my work. I am based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I am passionate about the Game Industry, especially game design for systems and content. While my focus is on board games, I am constantly researching, playing, and creating games of all kinds. I have a diverse background, including game design/development, working events, video production, copywriting, marketing, and some photography. I love constantly learning and corny jokes.
