Who is Jonathan Irving?

Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, I currently work as a freelance designer. I am also employed as a graphic artist at The St. Louis American Newspaper. Ever since I was a child I have had a wild imagination for art and design. Good design for me is eliminating all distractions and bringing attention to most important subject. I strongly believe art and design can be used as instruments to bring clarity to people as we navigate through the world. I still have vivid memories of my childhood deconstructing and building different art/design collections from my lego pieces my parents would buy for me. When I reached high school I was inspired by my art teacher, Mr. Lorenz, to boldly imagine, explore, and push my boundaries. Taking up his advice, I have had the great fortune of working on some truly inspiring projects while networking with many influential and creative individuals (photographers, fashion artists, fitness coaches, musicians, other designers, etc). As a young Black American, I seek to build spaces and platforms for myself and other Black American creatives to further push our culture further as minorities. I believe in the power of working together to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
