Jon spent five years as a freelance motion graphics designer before making the move into games. A skilled filmmaker and animator, Jon immediately impressed studio bosses with his cinematic flare and before long found himself creating title sequences and cut-scenes for an online roleplaying game with a budget in the many millions.
Growing up in Glasgow, Jon’s passion for games and films were dismissed as a pipe dream, so in 2010 when he was asked to work at Creative Assembly on a survival horror based on the Alien franchise, he said it felt like a dream come true. Four years later, when members of the press came out of an hour-long Alien: Isolation demo looking white as a sheet, he knew he was part of something special.
In August 2015, following a short stint at Rockstar North, Jon founded his own game studio No Code, allowing him to embrace his love for working at the head of a talented team. Following the release of Super Arc Light — their debut game for mobile — Jon is beginning work on his next project, a narrative console game for release in 2017.
