Hi. My name is Jon Glarbo. I am a graphic and type designer; I also work with illustrations and photography.
As a designer I have worked since 2003.
My specialities are custom designed logos and type. As I develop everything from scratch the design is a 100% original, so I can give it the precise brand values and details which make a recognizable and strong identity.
Also on my list of competence are custom designed typefaces for companies. This can be a very good solution for lager companies where it would lead to considerable expenses to pay royalties for font licenses for all their users. By getting a customized font the licenses are owned by the company and royalties don´t need to be paid. Your personal company font provides a strong identity and branding.
09-2010 Graduated with a Master of Arts (HBO) from the renowned study class TYPE ] MEDIA at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague, The Netherlands. 04-2007 Graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the Graphic school, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Previously I attended art classes extensively where I studied drawing, painting, sculpture, architecture and classical animation among others.
I have worked both as a freelancer and for studios.
