Jon Hicks is one half of the creative partnership Hicksdesign, designing for a variety of mediums, but with a particular fondness for icon and logo design. In fact he’s written a book, about it called The Icon Handbook, released in January 2012. His recent clients include Skype, Mailchimp, Shopify and Opera Software, but is best known for his uncanny impression of Lucius Malfoy singing “I only want to be with you”.
He blogs about design and personal interests (mainly Dr Who and Cycling) at hicksdesign.co.uk/journal
