My name is Philippe Jones. I am and have long been a creator of things. Not everything I create is decidedly exciting or new, but the act of creation always is.
I currently live in Gatineau, Quebec with my ridiculous cats Ares and Onyx, and my even more ridiculous partner, L. In late 2014 I started working at Foko as their web designer and quickly moved over to UX designer and product manager.
I have a BFA, major in design from Concordia University in Montreal. My background is in art and design. Through my penchant for developing new skills quickly I have amassed myriad competencies, which include: web design, web programming, and all that those entail; mobile app design; 3D and CAD modelling and rapid prototyping; logo and graphic design; type design; illustration; painting; and sculpting. I’m always enthusiastic to learn more. Being flexible and adaptable to a project is an important part of the way I work. I often undertake ambitious projects with needs beyond my immediate abilities to brute force learn new tools, and do so successfully.
I approach design work as an exercise in problem solving, with the process of solving being the most important, most satisfying part.
