Jon MacDonald's jonnymac blog
contains more information about the projects we have completed, or keep reading for more information.
My experiences include working for a start-up advertising agency, a world-class e-learning and sales training firm, and acting as Art Director for an interactive collective known as JonnyMac Design.
I earned my chops by jumping into the fire as the sole web designer/developer for a start-up agency in Cleveland, Ohio. During my years there I helped build brands for clients such as Nationwide Insurance, GE Financial, and ka Architecture. Upon arriving in Portland, Oregon I worked with Via Training and played a leadership role in their Flash projects for a variety of blue chip clients such as HP, Microsoft, Intel, Comcast and more. I continue to work with household brands, advertising agencies, and great designers and developers throughout the country with the interactive collective I started, as well as XPLANE, a company which clarifies complex business issues through visual and interactive communications to improve understanding and business performance.
On a more personal note, I have a passion for usability and user interfaces, and the marriage of design and development has always piqued my interest. While most of my time these days is not spent designing, I still hold a strong appreciation for the need of good design be it interactive, print, or the lamp on my desk. I'm also an avid basketball player and was a 4-year starter at power forward in college.
