about

Hi, I'm Jonathan. I'm an independent, multi-disciplinary designer and illustrator based in San Francisco. I focus my design efforts on non-profit and social activism causes, and use illustration as my side hustle and personal creative outlet (with science, tech, and music as my inspiration). I never stop learning, trying new things, and pushing the boundaries of technology in the work that I do — harnessing my curiosity and creativity to produce meaningful work for my clients. 

Since deciding to leave the corporate world to start my business in 2015, I have spent my time working with a variety of local and international companies and startups — both large and small — to achieve their visual communication goals. Prior to my freelance career I was the graphic designer for the Motion Picture Association of America. I worked to modernize the visual aesthetic of the organization, utilized my skills to educate policy makers on the Hill, and engaged the public on issues important to the film industry. My expertise in print design/production, advertising, marketing, branding and web design stem from my years as a designer at Condé Nast's in New York. I had the opportunity to work with a wide array of Fortune 500 clients to produce national advertising campaigns, both print and digital, and collaborated closely with the corporate Condé Nast team to produce and maintain collateral designs for the corporate brand.
