Mission

Jonn Langan Studio specialises in apparel categories including technical outdoor, snowsports, sportswear and urban outdoor.

I aim to help brands, big & small, in carefully developing all aspects of design. From focused creative direction & brand building, to key strategic planning & product concept innovations.

 

I want to deliver exactly what you need by matching and gathering the perfect parts to create products that are focused refined and iconic to your business.

Ethos

The ethos of how you work with people, I believe is as important as the work itself.

 

There is always a lot of emphasis put upon the final result, but in getting there it is important to look, analyse and consider every interaction we make. Getting a product to market is full of situations that need careful consideration.

Therefore at Jonn Langan Studio, I will spend time to look, listen and interact with everyone involved in the process. This is to make sure all information is in place with everyone who needs this it. Focus on the process and people, not just the product itself.

About

Born 1976 in the south of England. I grew up in the West Country, where I first discovered my love for art and design. After my foundation art course in Bristol, I decided to move North to study fashion design at Salford University.

After graduating I jumped at the opportunity to get involved in the apparel business and promptly moved to North Wales. After returning to Manchester for a time, I was offered the opportunity to move to the French Alps. This is where I was able to design and develop my skills based around my love for the outdoors & the mountains.

I spent 13 years working in France, both in the Alps, but also in the Pyrenees, where I set up my home, surrounded by the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. In 2018 I returned to the UK, where I continued to grow and learn new skills, until I decided to move on to try something new, something personal, something fresh.

Experience

With over 20 years of design and development experience in the apparel industry, I have amassed a wealth of knowledge and skills, which i have been continuously refining to become a better designer & leader.

 

In recent years I have taken charge of design teams, key strategic projects, and core processes, and this is where i feel i can best add value.

These experiences, over time, and across many different types of brands have given me a unique and well rounded understanding of the apparel business and how it has evolved to where it is today.

I believe design and development are intrinsically linked. The kernel of an idea cannot come to fruition if it is not properly cared for throughout the process. I believe a process is there to help (not hinder), so maintaining clarity of information from start to finish is imperative in delivering the best and right product to the market. 

I am a humble person who believes in continuous learning, investing in people and setting a positive approach to get the best out of everyone involved in a project. I hold great importance on the ability to balance skills, knowledge and experience with humility, listening and a thirst to continuously learn.
