Specialist areas include mobile film making, social media (platforms, trends and strategies) branding design (personal, organisational) and visual identity (graphic design and illustration).
Jon also specialises in collaborative and participative workshops for improvement, learning and evaluation and has applied his design-led approach to healthcare, social services, education and organisational development.

In March 2009 Jon established SuperFly, a visual arts based creative platform for designers and artists to exhibit using outdoor media space (traditionally reserved for advertising), such as billboards and legal fly-posting sites. Since then SuperFly has received submissions of work from across the world and collaborated with artists and creative organisations from across Scotland and the UK.
Open Close Movie
May 2018 saw the release of Jon’s first feature length documentary. It focussed on Dundee’s street art project Open Close founded by Russell Pepper – a project where long forgotten (and mostly hidden) spaces have been turned into artworks by artists from across the the UK and beyond.
Open Close Movie premiered to 130 paying customers at Dundee’s DCA cinema to an overwhelming reception.
