This is my designing face!
Hi, I’m Jon Hall! I'm known to have a very locked-in look on my face when I'm designing. I get into it. I obsess over the smallest detail. I ask myself, "Am I proud of this?" A design is never satisfactory to me until I know it's of high enough quality to have my name attached to it. In the design world, we can get caught up in throwing colors and letters on a page to meet a quota, a deadline. I want it to go above the quota. I want it to say something. I want it to mean something — designing with a purpose!
Logos and motion graphics interest me the most. I like learning more about these genres of design and am always working to sharpen my skills. All design is important but these spark a flame within me because of the impact they can have. That's why I'm also intrigued by advertising, marketing, and branding. Knowing that creativity can initiate a response, drive business, and take a company to the next level is what made me fall in love with design! I've experienced this first hand with the freelance designing I have done so far. Nothing is better to me than having a client ecstatic over the job you've done and helping them reach their creative goals.
On a more personal note, I am a SUPER sport and video game fan. These have turned into hobbies more and more as I’ve gotten older, surprisingly enough, haha. Any time I’m at home I’m watching all of the sports talk and debate shows on FS1, and any baseball (my favorite sport by a mile), basketball, or football game that comes on. When I’m not doing that, I’m playing video games. I play racing games primarily because I love cars. I mix in some single-player adventure and puzzle games as well. Moving to Atlanta has been a treat for me because I can see a car I thought I would only see on Google Images or YouTube.
When I’m not lost in my own little world, I try to do things to help make the world a better place. I’ve finally started recycling, and I try to use only as much electricity and water that is necessary. I’m environmentally conscious, and I’m trying to get better about it every day. I also enjoy being there for people. That’s the thing that gets me out of bed every day. Whether a person needs me to be a psychiatrist, an advisor, or a comedian, I want to help them in any way I can. I’ve always felt that for the time that you’re on this Earth that you should be making a difference, no matter how big or small.
