About me

Independent graphic designer with over ten years of experience at renowned studios in London and Amsterdam operating in the fields of art, culture and commerce. Design philosophy is to take a project-specific approach, aiming to communicate the unique attributes of each project through appropriate, thoughtful and engaging solutions. Central to this practice is a belief in the power of collaboration with clients, manufacturers and other creatives, and an objective to communicate with playful clarity. Working with a range of clients from individual curators to international arts events has allowed for a varied output including corporate identity and branding, design for print, editorial design, environmental and exhibition design, typographic and type design, and design for digital platforms. Formerly senior designer at Barnbrook. Jon designed the book for the V&A’s headline show of 2017, Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains. He has also designed the book, exhibition and marketing campaign for the Design Museum headline show of 2017, California: Designing Freedom. Previous clients/projects include Art Basel, Thames and Hudson, Banksy’s Dismaland and October Salon, Belgrade.
