Who we are

John Sampson
John SampsonDirector at Ecotype
John has 20 plus years working in newspapers, desktop publishing and with environmental organisations.

Some of my highlights

I established Ecotype in 2008 after moving to Tasmania from Victoria. Since then I’ve built a strong business with national and local clients and have loved working with them all, including:
  • Victorian National Parks Association
  • Invasive Species Council
  • NRM South
  • Bush Heritage Australia
  • Places You Love
I started my professional life with a degree in journalism at RMIT in Melbourne before moving into desktop publishing, then on to newspapers where I’ve worked as a journalist and in senior managerial roles as an editor and production editor.

Running Ecotype allows me to combine my passion for desktop publishing, graphic design, writing and editing with my other love, the natural environment.

I worked with many brilliant people in both newspapers and environmental advocacy at places including Pagemasters, Fairfax Community Newspapers, the Bendigo Advertiser, mX and the Victoria Naturally Alliance before branching out on my own.
A love of bushwalking and Australia’s unique landscapes and animals have allowed me to specialise in the environmental and land management sectors, but I’m also passionate about Tasmania’s world-class food scene and a dab hand in the kitchen.
