Jonas Williamsson is a Swedish graphic designer based in Stockholm. He graduated with a MFA from Konstfack in 1999 and same year co-founded the graphic design and illustration collective REALA with Samuel Nyholm and Laurent Benner. Since 2007 he’s running his own practice focusing on commissions in the field of culture. He is interested in how todays technology informs the way we communicate and how we communicate through our understanding of todays technology, a critical dealing with the notion of graphic design and how and what it could be used for. Often with a strategy of using what is at stake outside of its expression, Williamsson’s design could be understood as a design for its non-expression. Recent commissioners include ARKET, Köttinspektionen Dans, MDT, DOCH, Johanna Gustafsson Fürst, Lisa Östberg and Kim Hiorthøy. He has been exhibited at Museum für Gestaltung in Zurich, Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros in Mexico City and Moravian Gallery/22nd International Biennale of Graphic Design in Brno among other places. He is occasionally invited as guest teacher and lecturer at design and art schools. His work has been awarded by Kolla!, Svensk bokkonst and The New York Art Directors Club.
