Jonathan is a Senior Designer with Fahrenheit 212’s Creative Development department, bringing with him a breadth of experience and insight on both the business and creative sides of design.
Prior to joining Fahrenheit 212, Jonathan worked at Moss in SoHo, where he sold beautifully designed objects, furniture, lights, and the most silky smooth bathtubs one could imagine. Understanding the narrative and history of each item sold in the shop was Jonathan’s secret in the game of sales. He quickly realized a good design sells itself, and the rest is simply understanding and context; two things Jonathan loved providing.
While working in the wholesale department at Kidrobot, developing new accounts and educating shop owners around the world on the importance of designer toys, something clicked inside Jonathan’s mind. With Fahrenheit-caliber speed and determination he shifted, banked, and slammed on the gas towards his new goal of becoming a designer. Parsons the New School for Design provided intensive training in graphic design, and he quickly excelled in silkscreen, book design, typography and motion. Jonathan was recently selected to design the forthcoming book showcasing student work.
Shortly after graduating from Parsons, Jonathan helped redesign ArtAsiaPacific, a contemporary art magazine covering Asia, Pacific and the Middle East. There he refined his capabilities for typographic elegance and detail, and thrived in the deeply collaborative editorial process.
Just behind design, swimming and eating are always at the forefront of Jonathan’s mind, leading him to regard the porpoise as his spirit animal.
In his position at Fahrenheit-212, Jonathan is excited to be working at the intersection of ideas and design.
