Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that are self-similar across different scales. They are created by repeating a simple process over and over, in an on going...


For Viakal’s new shower and kitchen cleaner, Jonathan had to create a showerhead with 50% limescale. It was a real challenge to get the contrast between the two sides – the spluttering water of the limescaled left side, contrasting with the smooth flow on the right, but as usual, the best way to create the...

Needless to say the studio had...

Jonathan is always experimenting with liquids and textures. Given his fascination with science and his incredible attention to detail, it’s no wonder that movement, blending and the layering of mixing paints appeal to him. To see more from this project please visit the Liquids page on our website.

Guinness Surge

In Guinness terms the ‘Surge’ is that beautiful moment when the dense black drink foams and swirls up towards the top of the pint before it settles.   Here Jonathan captures the beauty of the Surge, the moment just before the settle, before things become black and white, and the warmth of the two dancing...
