Jonas Downey, designer of interfaces, writer of words, maker of pancakes.

My name is Jonas.

I’m a product designer at Basecamp in Chicago.

Since 2011, I’ve been working on ideas and interfaces for Basecamp and Know Your Company.

I also make websites, art, and physical objects. Here are a couple selected works.

Sometimes I collect links to interesting things. You should check ‘em out.

(There's a lot more on my Pinboard.)

You can also find me on one of these social doodads.
