Jonathan’s background is as a qualified Architect. Starting as Design Director of Digits2Widgets in 2011, he and his team have striven to assist all potential users of digital manufacturing processes to get purposeful results from the technology as it exists today.This approach is only possible through D2W’s availability to talk to clients about their projects before they print anything. Their day to day experience of 3D printing technology, hand in hand with design dialogue within a working bureau is unrivalled.
This rather analogue approach and the creative ambition of many of their clients, has led to some extraordinary objects being produced through the studio. The aim is always to help clients try and achieve things that transcend the technology. Objects should justify themselves and how they are produced should only be the second part of any conversation. Jonathan has presented talks about 3D printing to audiences as diverse as Chatham House and the Crafts’ Council, always with an emphasis on the demystification of what is often presented as a complex and impenetrable “Sci-Fi” technology.
