Welcome

Thanks for taking a look around.

profile

I'm Jon Marr, and I've worked professionally as a graphic/multimedia/web designer for over a decade. I hope this site will help you determine if my abilities can help you successfully complete your projects.

The types of projects I work on are wide-ranging, from logos to web development. I'm comfortable working with large corporations and individual business owners, and have a wealth of experience acting as a bridge between technical and non-technical audiences.

I'm friendly, task-oriented, and I specialize in working independently: delivering projects on-time and on-budget.

Skills

When it comes to digital media, I try to cast as wide a net as possible: photo-manipulation, vector images, desktop publishing, websites (template or hand-coded), Flash, HTML 5, video software, music composition... if it's digital, I can likely help.

Experience

I've worked professionally as a graphic/multimedia/web designer for many years, working with clients large and small.

Edmonds Community College

Education

The tools used to create digital media evolve so quickly that education is a continuing on-the-job affair, but my traditional education has proved valuable in many other aspects of my professional life.

Brigham Young University

1990-1994

Majored in History, Geography Minor

While studying history and geography didn't teach me anything about design or the web, I did learn how to write. And to communicate. As the years have gone by, I've come to understand that these are two of the most important skills I possess.

I also managed to fit in computing, drawing, and art history courses, as well as one the first computer graphics classes taught at any university in the United States, kicking off a lifelong passion for digital art.

Animation/Application

I've created dozens of Flash applications used for training purposes by major corporations, integrating animation, video, quizzes and games. In addition I create gaming utilities for both the web and mobile devices.

Zero Injury Thinking

This is an intro animation I created for a safety initiative at a major aerospace company in the Pacific Northwest. The look and feel of the character and the animation style became the template for the entire campaign.

Creating music is a big part of my life. I compose symphonic/soundtrack/training video music in a variety of styles. If you need custom music for a project delivered affordably and quickly, contact me. My band m2 is currently working on our 2nd CD.
