Hey, my name is Steve Jones, a creative professional from Durban and the founder and director of New Noise.
My personal experience spans a number of mediums; having obtained a formal qualification in Graphic Design. I took to production and sound from a very young age, while playing music in numerous bands, and founded “Uprising Festival”, a music festival which ran from 2000 – 2008. Following a short stint in a traditional advertising agency, I was part of the core team at UKZN’s Centre for Creative Arts for almost 5 years, working on 18 editions of major international cultural festivals, including the Durban International Film Festival and Poetry Africa.
Currently, Sound and Design are at the core of my expertise toolkit; I work as a Sound Technician in-studio and on-location, and a Designer for various clients, including logos and web/UX design. I’ve also had experience with Photography, Video, Editing and Motion Graphics.
I employ all of my expertise to inform the creative vision for New Noise, applying my knowledge of various technology, production and media along with collective expertise to direct creative projects for our clients.
