Profile

Hi, my name is Jon, and I am a senior creative designer specialising in motion graphics and digital design, with a proven track record of delivering high end, beautiful creatives for premium brands.

I have created digital & motion graphics content for online and in-store displays for over twelve years, the last four as a team lead.
During this time I have produced and managed numerous animation and web projects, from concept to execution. With a hands-on approach to the entire creative process, I always ensure each project is curated with the utmost attention from inception to final delivery.

During my career, I have also developed and designed many websites and interactive experiences, both for Estee Lauder Companies and other businesses, and I am also a keen illustrator and generally love anything creative!
