Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Jonathon Toon

Wellington, New Zealand
I'm Jonathon Toon, a New Zealand-born media designer.

As a graduate of Victoria University of Wellington's School of Design, I think it is vital for a designer to be a conduit-to bridge the gap-between computation, interaction and aesthetics. My work is dedicated to pursuing new ways of creating the world around us through user interaction design, creative coding and graphical user interfaces.
