Based in Marietta, Ohio, Jon Eells (Marietta College) has 24 years of experience as a healthcare designer.
When asked who he thinks about when he designs, Jon answered, “Myself. Just kidding. Actually, there is some truth to this as I often question if I were the user, the patient, or the operator, what challenges or benefits would I be expecting--consciously or subliminally--from the design?” His work is also informed by his experience as a field sales rep, along with woodworking knowledge, which helps him understand manufacturing constraints. He adds, “Much of my inspiration comes from a lifetime of immersion in classical art and design. Experience has shown me that the great movements of history are always interconnected. I try to draw on that DNA.”
