Jon M Wilson

My name is Jon M Wilson.

I have a passion for creating things to bring entertainment to life: set pieces, props, costumes, jewellery, accessories, signage, merchandise for entertainers and more.

If you have a concept, my superpower is taking the idea and turning it sideways, upside down and back again with you to create things that neither of us would have thought of otherwise. I absolutely love the creative process of taking ideas, stretching them and delighting in what can be made from them. With 24×7 access to a powerful laser cutter and home studio, designs can be rapidly prototyped and brought to their final form.

I am making a pivot in my career and am looking for opportunities to work in film, television and stage in Production Design.



Here are some samples of things I’ve worked on thus far:
