Jon Ruiz discovered his knack for the arts an early age. When he was 5, his mother was astounded by his natural drawing talents and, as they say, the rest is history.
Jon attained his BFA in 2010 from The University of Central Florida, all the while carrying freelance projects through to fruition. It was there that he discovered his passion for visual communication and design. With the help of his mentors, Jon nabbed a sweet role as an Assistant Product Designer in Chicago – but that was only the beginning.
After Chicago's bitter winter drove him west, Jon is now happy to now call San Francisco his home. While working in the bay area, he's had the pleasure to consult, design, and work along some of the worlds leading tech brands as he continues to grow his portfolio.
Whether supporting Marketing Teams, or working solo, Jon's exciting designs have landed in a multitude of spaces spanning the online and print landscapes.
