Based in North Yorkshire, Jon Baugh trained at the London Institute: Camberwell College of Arts where he achieved a BA(hons) in 3D Design. During the last 10 years Jon Baugh has been working as a digital designer within the area of 3D modelling and animation. This has given him in-depth experience of a range of different projects from simple web animation to larger animation and post-production projects. The content of these projects covers animated logos to specialist industrial and scientific animation/3D Visualisation. Whilst working as a freelance designer he also currently teach 3D Computer Modelling and Animation on a number of courses within further and higher education.
In 2008 Jon Baugh completed an MA in Digital Art with Distinction where he focused on researching the theoretical and practical uses of 3D modeling and animation as a medium to construct digital sculpture and installation. Production of this work has led to the development of site-specific animations for macro technologies e.g. The Big Screen – BBC Manchester and digital installations using multiple projections to create digital virtual environments in which the viewer can physically inhabit.
Jon Baugh’s urrent body of work in digital animation has exhibited both nationally and internationally, these include:
Gasworks Gallery – London, Finalist for the 12th International Media Art biennial, Wroclaw, Poland, Media Arts Festival Netherlands and led to participation in a digital media event at the University of Valencia, Spain.
