Jon Berry is an award-winning creative director, motion graphic designer, animator, and confirmed typography addict. Until December of 2005, he was the Design/Creative Director of Fine Living TV, where he helped define the network’s progressive look and feel from its inception. Since then, he has crafted design solutions for clients worldwide from the eclectic surfing neighborhood of El Porto in Manhattan Beach, California.
Jon is a fan of travel, modernism, kitsch, gourmet food trucks, rodeo, and the LA Galaxy (like, seriously obsessed). The fastest way to his heart is with good kerning or a good Weissbier. Or both. In 2014, Jon opened a new side project of t-shirts, posters, and other goods based on the lost LA beach town of El Porto - check it out at osoporto.com

Less is more. Always. Clean, simple, forward-thinking design speaks volumes and doesn’t require bevels or light flares or whatever the trend du jour may be.
Simplicity is minimal. jonberrydesign is small, but concentrated. That means you get the power of great design without the frustration and expense of a bureaucracy. Call or email and Jon will respond. No receptionists. No agents. No BS. Simple.
Wisdom is knowing that design is about communication, not making things look pretty. Great design means something. It elicits a response. It sends a message, builds a brand, leaves a lasting impression.
Wisdom comes from experience. Experience in every aspect of the broadcast and entertainment industry, from graphic design to team management to client service.
Experience that has resulted in broad technological expertise, a timeless design sensibility, and a true understanding of demographic targeting.
It’s always a little surprising how often clients say "thanks for being so nice about this." It’s a designers job to create and explain what he believes to be the best solution for your project. That doesn’t have to be done with a condescending glance over teeny black eyeglasses.
Design need not come with a "designer attitude". Clients have opinions. Things change. No big whoop.
