The Punk Designer

Jon Gold

Even though Jon liked design as a kid his focus was always on music; his dreamed of becoming a Rockstar. At one point in his life he was kicked out of school and ended up at a vocational school (or at least the US equivalent). He tried enrolling in a video editing course but it was full, so he settled on a design class instead. Still focusing on a music career, Jon helped friends and other bands make flyers and album artwork on the side. Overtime, he realized his love for design, and development, and now makes products he's proud of at Makeshift in London.
