I'm Jordan Jones, a 28 year old award winning Graphic Designer from Tipton, England.
I have been working as a Graphic Designer for over 7 years and have spent the last 2 of those working remotely from all corners of the globe. I have a First Class BA (Hons) degree in Graphic Design Communications and have an excellent knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite, particularly Photoshop & Illustrator.
During my time as a designer I have collaborated on projects with a huge variety of customers, from independent business owners all the way up to startup companies and big name brands.
With each client, no matter the size, I go into it with the same mindset: You have a vision and it's my job to bring it to life.
Now, with over 110 ★★★★★ reviews on the Uk Based Freelancer Platform PeoplePerHour, I think I'm pretty good at it!
"Bro the design is insane, everyone thinks it's the best, awesome work! Thanks for taking time to make this happen. I can tell you put a lot into the design."
"Jordan was a great designer to work with. In addition, he was very professional and communicated closely throughout the project, to make sure that we meet deadline. This meant working well into the weekends and that is something I am very appreciative of."
"Jordan is now my 'go to' graphic designer. Whether it's a full creative job from scratch or help with turning other peoples ideas into reality, his good nature, efficiency and patience have produced great results every time."
So Why The Design Hero?
About 5 years ago I left my small town in England in the pursuit of adventure and something bigger. I began with an 890km walk across France and Spain with my 2 best mates and haven't really looked back since. Along the way I've had some amazing times, seen some fascinating countries, and done things I only thought happened in the movies.
However, there's also times when you travel where things don't work out. Plans fail, things fall apart and you're left to pick up the pieces in a foreign land with no friends or family to lean on for support. In those kinds of times, you need to find something that lights a fire in you to keep you going.
That's when I found this video:
Sounds a little intense right?
Well, I bloody needed it at the time and 'living my life like I was the hero of my own movie' was exactly what I needed to do to pull me out of the rut I had gotten myself into. It also sparked a spontaneous adventure around Turkey which continued onwards to Australia where so many awesome things fell into place under so many strange and unlikely circumstances that I decided not to question this way of living and just stick with it.
Since that day, I've traveled Canada and America in a motorhome, lived and worked in New Zealand, Thailand and Vietnam and made so many friends I wouldn't even know where to begin listing them.
My design work has been the one constant anchor throughout this entire time that I could keep coming back to and it also helped me generate the cash I needed to keep 'living the dream'. I take the same 'Be The Hero' mindset into my design work and always try and go the extra mile for my clients. So, when it came to coming up with a brand name for my design business, it only made sense that it be something that felt true to my heart.
Thus... The Design Hero was born and I've been Saving Your work ever since!
