about shon

What a storyteller does with words, Shon does with pictures; he creates and nurtures images until they communicate a larger idea.

With an aversion to monotony, Shon is always on the move and continuously finding interesting ways of expressing himself. He can never turn down the opportunity to learn something new; after all, wider knowledge can help out in unexpected ways.

After graduating from high school in 2004, he worked and traveled before entering the IDEA program at Capilano University. There he learned many tricks and skills that helped him grow as an artist and professional. As an exchange student, Shon also attended the Bisen School of Illustration and Design in Sapporo, Japan. He went expecting to learn only about Japanese design sensibilities, but ended up opening wide all his senses to the larger experience of a very different culture.

He then went on to work at Spring for almost six years. Starting off as an intern and making his way to associate partner. He won a few local and international awards along the way as well.
