Jonathan Ginn. 23 years old. I was born and bred in Essex, but I'm currently living in Bournemouth. I have recently finished my degree in Interactive Media Production at Bournemouth University, graduating with a First Class with Honours. I am eager at the prospect of moving to London as part of an vibrant agency, but for the time being I am enjoying the peaceful life in Dorset.
Probably a whole lot more besides, and an ability to learn anything that isn't on this list.

Working as the sole Front-End Developer and Designer, my day to day tasks take me on a huge variety of goals.

I'm hugely passionate about the tech industry, especially the web design and game design spheres of tech. I am involved with events organising, including HACKBMTH, of which I am half of, and taking the lead on Barcamp Bournemouth 2013. I also regularly speak at events on topics I enjoy.
I've designed websites and campaigns for large corporations, dealing with varying circumstances and careful client management. I'm always learning new things and improving my workflow.
Always learning new design skills and consuming new things. Fascinated by the advances in social media and the affects it has on the broadcast and consumption of news and interactions between people. Influenced heavily by films and the media I consume. Obsessed with Twitter and the processes of information.
I'm experienced in working remotely as part of a large team around the world. I developed and created art for the successful mod Project Reality for Battlefield 2 as part of a large team of dedicated modders.
I enjoy creating branding, for real companies or fictional, and with a dash of humour. I love utilising social media to its fullest to convey a message or gather an audience. I love variety in the work I do, and would greatly value a career that allowed me to tackle various challenging tasks.
