Welcome to Forge Creative, the production and design studio of Jonathan Herndon. There’s not much to the site, some contact information, a few samples, and a bit about how and what I do.

Because what I do is not really about me.

A little about me

My approach is about solutions
more than anything else.

Great art and great problem solving both require great creativity. And while both may be beautiful, solutions are about the you—the client, taking your core message to your audience as efficiently and effectively as possible.

By taking advantage of well tested, wide ranging
skills, templates, code and techniques, I can help
your organization update and upgrade your brand
on a budget that scales.

Not much more about me to say.

I'm not terribly good at self-promotion.

You may have picked up on that by now. And I'm not good with surprises either. But I'm good with a budget, and deadlines, and bringing a project to finish. I've got years of experience doing that for clients large and small (mostly small if I'm honest).

Use the form here to give me shout, and I'll get in touch with you as soon as I can.
Let's build something together.

Drop me a line at jonathan(atmark)42seventeen(dot)net.

Thanks for stopping by.
