Jon is a visual designer with a background in digital marketing. He understands what’s needed to run a successful web project: collaboration, communication with a sprinkling of inspiration and perspiration along the way.
Before Clearleft Jon ran his own design studio, where he offered design, development and marketing services for clients including Virgin Galactic, Interscope Records, the British Medical Journal, Macmillan and EnglishUK to name a few.
Since joining Clearleft, Jon has helped design digital experiences for NBCUniversal,Nuts.com, Code for America, The Holiday Place, Brighton & Hove Council, Penguin Random House and many more.
Jon has a keen & clear understanding of responsive design. A hybrid designer by nature, he understands the intricacies, nuances and challenges of designing for the multi-device web.
Having led a second life as a digital marketing manager, Jon’s experiences afforded him some unique views on the crucial (and often disregarded) link-up between UX, design and marketing.
Although at Clearleft Jon’s focus is on visual design, he always tries to keep an eye on the marketing-centric goals of Clearleft’s clients. After all, great design is great marketing.
Away from the office
A Canadian in the UK, Jon can be found drinking coffee, playing 5-a-side with other aging Dads or, like Rich, striving to resurrect his Mountain Biking days of yore. Jon is married and the father of two wonderful daughters.
