Jon Kuiter is a British multidisciplinary designer with an eclectic portfolio that ranges from interiors to digital illustration. His artworks mix traditional drawing with digital rendering techniques and are usually as a premise for something else to be constructed digitally in 3D or built physically. His Master Degree specialised in digital illustrative collage and the use of ‘photo-bashing’ in concept design. His ‘Impact Award’ winning artwork has been displayed at various temporary exhibitions and events across the UK.

Jon has over ten years of experience working as an international educator. In Malaysia, he specialised in teaching commercial interior design for the retail and hospitality sector. Jon’s teaching goes beyond the classroom, involving himself in exhibition curation to help promote students and build network connections with industries. He continues his goal of developing courses in the interest of future-proofing design education.
