I’m Jonathan Ogden. I'm involved in a lot of things, but simply put, I'm passionate about creativity in its many forms. I'm a graphic designer, musician, casual photographer and occasional film maker based in Manchester, UK.
I've been working as a designer since 2008. Mostly working with collage and typography, but also doing various print and branding projects. I worked as an in-house designer for a christian charity called The Message Trust from 2010 - 2015, while also running various side-projects such as band called Rivers & Robots and a blog called Typographic Verses. I subsequently left to run my own organisation called Set Sail, in which I'm exploring what it means to be a creative missionary, using the arts and creative work to make God known, and essentially combining all that I do into one.
So, what does that look like day to day? I spend most of my time working on new music and touring with Rivers & Robots, I've also released a solo EP and continue to post song ideas to my soundcloud page. Alongside that, I do design work on a freelance basis, I post weekly-ish vlogs to the Set Sail YouTube channel and run events here in Manchester called Gather.
This site is where I share my design work. But I'm all over the internet like a table cloth. Here are some links!
