About

Hi, I'm Jon, I run Archon Digital.

I'm a graphic designer who started in print before shifting to design and development on the web.

Since 2005, I've been doing websites and tinkering with servers both during work and in my free time. I also still dabble in print every now and then and still dreams of having my own letterpress.

This is where Dad used to play during his pro pelotari days. An elegant Art Deco structure that has been part of Manila's history for as long as I can remember. Its Sky Room was also once the playground of the elite back in the City's glory days.
