“I like design to be semantically correct, syntactically consistent, and pragmatically understandable. I like it to be visually powerful, intellectually elegant, and above all timeless.”
— Massimo Vignelli
Jonathan believes that design has the ability to enact change, allowing us to shape and make sense of the world around us. As beings created in the image of God, we reflect and rework the raw elements around us to portray beauty, inspire to action, and create new things as a reflection of God's creative intent.
