Jon Simons

Jon's passions earned him a BFA in Graphic Design at Missouri State University. There, he grew under the tutelage of Russian and Polish poster designers. His career led him to Paradowski where he is always honing his skills in identity, art direction and UI/UX. After hours, Jon illustrates posters for local events and has taken on the task of cataloging hand-painted typography while cycling throughout the city of St. Louis.
