Jon Baugh

Profile

I joined the University in January 2019 as a Teaching Fellow in Motion Design/Graphic Design.

My commercial knowledge and experience has been gained through freelance work in motion graphics and animation; projects include 3D graphics/illustration for product branding, design visualisation for product developers, scientific illustration and animation predominantly for online content.

The other area I work in is creating scientific animation illustration for educational purposes this is in conjunction with the Science Photo Library. The projects involve developing animations to explain and teach the necessary concepts within science whether this be hydrogen bonding in helical proteins to the synthesis of alcohol from yeast. In generating this work I utilise information graphics, 3D animation, dynamics & particle simulation, texturing and lighting.

Research interests

During my MA in Digital Arts the practice based research I undertook explored the conceptual and practical use of 3D digital software as a medium to construct digital artefacts and installation. Through researching notions within historical immersive spaces combined with digital technologies I developed a series of immersive digital installations encompassing a physical space.
