Sponsored by Morgan Lovell
Jonathan Mizzi attended the USC School of Cinematic Arts in LA as well as Escape studios in London, where he studied digital set design, visual effects and animation.
He did all of this before graduating from the Bartlett School of Architecture, where he received a commendation for his work in neo-futuristic design in architecture.
Mizzi’s passion for design and wide range of skills found him work as a concept designer at Foster and Partners. Shortly afterwards, he joined renowned interactive design studios, Jason Bruges Studio and Cinimod Studio. Finally, in 2011 he founded Mizzi Studio where his love for design, architecture and art fuse together.
Since its launch, Mizzi Studio has established bases in both London and Malta, producing work ranging from architecture to industrial design, lighting, interactive design and commercial artworks. With designs often accentuated by technology and luminosity, Mizzi’s work has been described as neo-futuristic, biomorphic and kinetic-interactive. With a hugely diverse portfolio of clients, Mizzi Studio has been shortlisted for major awards over the years, including for Best Public Space in the FX International Design Awards 2014.
