Who are you? Let us know where you hail from and what you do.
Hello, I am Jonathan Quintin, a Bath-born graphic designer/creative director currently living in Bristol, UK. I am the founder of STUDIOJQ, an independent design consultancy based in Bristol, UK. Our aim is to achieve memorable, engaging results through a combination of effective communication, a professional approach, and of course creative ideas. I have been lucky enough to have worked on some amazing projects ranging from infographics to brand design and illustration. Along the way I’ve been honoured to have collaborated on work at the world’s top design studios including Hush, Invisible Light Network, Noise New York and Slate.com. Have been lucky to have worked with some great clients including Bosch, Intel, Mitsubishi Motors, Moscow Raceway, NBC Sports Network and Rockstar Energy Drink.
What are you working on?
I am currently working on a really cool infographics poster for a well-known brand, but unfortunately can’t say more on that at the moment. Am very excited though!
Choose a favorite shot of yours. Tell us why it’s a favourite.
SJQHUB™ // B&I Dashboard. This is my favourite shot as I feel it best displays my style as a designer: clean, progressive and colourful.
Tell us about your setup. What tools did you use to create the shot (e.g. hardware, software, pens, paper, blowtorch)?
Not too original really, love the basics … iMac, Wacom Pen & Touch, HB pencil, white moleskin, a nice cup of Yorkshire tea.
