Do you remember those times when they said that extreme specialisation was a good idea? Those times when there was people that committed their life to studying the ways of mating of a certain type of crab that only lives in like 5 miles of beach in the world? And can you remember those who thought that the opposite way was the way to bathe in champagne and oysters? Those who said “you gotta know how to do everything and how to do it well”? Filming, editing, painting, illustrating, building and, if needed, singing popular songs with satanic voices?
Jonathan Zawada demolishes all theories. He’s specialised in his thing (“his thing” as something really wide, what he can do, “the touch”), and, at the same time, he’s broken professional barriers being, on the paper, a Graphic Designer but also going into fashion design, illustration, product design and so on. His work has been published in many many places (Pretty Ugly, Precursor, Juxtapoz, Bullet…) and he’s also held exhibitions. Jonathan Zawada is the way to follow, he’s the talent transcending. I’m sure he can even sing popular songs in satanic style.
