About me

Hello, my name is Shinji Pons. I am a visual designer who was born in Japan but grew up in France, who currently lives in London. I graduated with a First Class Honours BA in Graphic & Media Design from the London College of Communication in 2012. I rely heavily on user-centered design principles to produce high-quality visuals across many platforms, using the latest software and techniques to build assets as efficiently as possible.
