Hey I’m Jon, an independent designer with twelve years experience designing for brand, print and digital products and services.


I live in Reading but work with clients and agencies all over the UK and sometimes further. Working across brand, print & digital design, I love nothing more than getting stuck into a big project and working as part of a team.

My early career was spent as a freelancer in design & marketing agencies before setting up Studio 18 in early 2011 to work independently with individuals, companies & agencies that excite me.

In 2018, I had a contract with Lloyds Banking Group working on brand and print communications for a new group within the organisation called Optimus. Previously, I’ve worked on projects for Vodafone, P&G and the University of Reading.

How I work

I predominately work from a co-working space in Reading designing directly for my own client-base but I’m also available to work within a team as an in-house designer, either at your premises or remotely. I regularly collaborate with other agencies and individuals so don’t be a stranger.

I love to bring creativity, hard work and laughter (without sounding like David Brent) to any project or team I freelance on.

I love working on:

—Brand creation & development
—All print communications
—Brochures, books & magazines
—UX, website & app design

Recent clients include:

—University of Bath
—Lloyds Banking Group
—Thames Valley Berks Business Growth Hub
—Oxford Innovation
—Travis Perkins


I’m currently working with the good people at 10 Degrees a couple of days a week so have limited availability freelance wise, but I’m available to discuss projects with new & existing clients.

I’m always interested to hear of new opportunities, so please get in touch, it would be great to hear from you.

Cheers, Jon
