Beard is the New Black

Dylan Jones is a graphic designer,<br />
a gallery owner, a connoisseur of fine meats & cheeses, an obsessive record collector, a funk aficionado, a ginger, & a proud father of one.

After spending a scorching 13 years and the better part of his childhood growing up in the Las Vegas heat, Dylan left the architecture program at UNLV, and headed west to San Diego in 1995 to pursue a career in advertising and design. While studying at The Advertising Arts College, he worked as a student teacher where he taught design workshops. In his senior year, he began to develop a steady base of freelance clients, and in 1998 he graduated valedictorian and joined the creative team at ParkerWhite, a north county based brand communications agency. After nearly 8 years at ParkerWhite, Dylan moved on to pursue his own freelance clientele, and eventually landed a spot as senior designer at MiresBall. After nearly 9 years, he transitioned from Design Director at MiresBall to his new role as Associate Creative Director at Experiences for Mankind. Over the past 17 years Dylan has worked with a variety of clients including Qualcomm, Shure Microphones, Taylor Guitars, Guitar Center, Titleist, DonJoy, Airwalk Footwear, Star Trac Fitness, Ballast Point Brewing, The Gemological Insitute of America, and Sony Electronics. His work has been showcased in a variety of publications including Communication Arts, HOW, Print, STEP, and Graphis.

In September of 2006, Dylan partnered with Don Hollis of Hollis Brand Communication to form Subtext; a contemporary art gallery located in North Little Italy near downtown San Diego. Since its inception, Subtext has featured nearly 400 up-and-coming and established contemporary artists from around the globe. In his endless quest for art and design excellence, Dylan adds a critical eye and keen sense of design to the Subtext equation.
