Jonathan Mahoney

Kansas City, MO, USA
I’m a designer and illustrator in the great Kansas City. My roots run deeply here, from my great grandfather hawking his produce in broken English at the City Market in the 20s, to my toddling daughter smelling freshly cut flowers in the same cobbled square. Seeing the city grow through creativity and forward thinking is my ambition.

Creating is what I do. I could draw before I could speak (perhaps not very well). I love story-telling, whether it be in creating a brand's identity and voice, or helping a client get their brand out there for the world to see. Taking an idea and carrying it through to fruition for others to enjoy is what I love to do.
