For a company aiming to attract guests from all over the world, a brochure that is well-designed, informative, eye catching and conveys the company’s expertise is essential to establishing new markets. Jon Barlow’s creative input from concept to delivery played a key role in us achieving this and more. Jon’s creative vision and understanding of our brand identity made the process that much easier and we are happy to recommend him

The quality of work and attention to detail that Niseko Design displayed throughout the entire design process was extremely impressive. Jon of Niseko Design was extremely patient with our numerous requests, contacted us with answers and revisions promptly, and most of all, created a professional and distinct website.

It was a pleasure working with someone who not only listened to our wants and ideas, but built on those and gave us more. Though that project is complete, we’ve found ourselves going back to Jon with more projects, and would happily recommend his services to others.

Initially we approached Jon for a full web-site re-development. His attention to details, surrounds & textures throughout the building and then incorporating this feel into our web-site was commendable. The transformation to a more functional web-page that was now easy to navigate and purveyed the brands image in a sleek & elegant design was handled in an efficient & professional manner. Since then, updates & changes have been made with ease, and this project will be ever-growing …

We were so pleased with Jon’s work on the website, that we have since been using Jon for all of our design requirements. Firstly, a range of business cards, or Meishi, that were created to speak the individual personalities of each Senior staff member, using a gallery of B&W Hokkaido images; the vision I had for this series of cards was bought to life again in a sleek & elegant product that we are all very proud to pass around.

We then worked together on a range of labels for our house-made food products. These labels required information in both English & Japanese, detailing an array of requirements by Japanese regulations. All of these requirements were met in a series of sleek labels, without feeling cluttered & while still maintaining J-Sekka’s style.

Jon has also completed various other print & media requirements, including a series of DL flyers showcasing the various outlets within J-Sekka building, expressing each venue’s individuality but remaining one cohesive set of media.

Jon’s attention to detail, imagination & design skills led to a more fluid & cohesive overall representation of the brand and it has been a pleasure working with him on these projects, and we look forward to working with him further.


Having Jon from Niseko Design in your ‘design’ pocket is like having a good, reliable Swiss army knife at your side. With every project and idea we come up with Jon pulls out the right tools to get the job done…His strength is his creative Design and IT skill set that makes him kind of like a one stop design studio.

Even before I opened my gym I knew how important a good website would be to it’s success. I wanted something that looked great and was easy to navigate for both members and staff. Niseko Design delivered with a website that met all my expectations and more.

Most importantly I’ve had nothing but good reviews about the site from everyone who has seen it. If you’re looking to give yourself or your business a great web presence make sure you get in touch with Jon at Niseko Design.

Jon’s attention to detail and design established a strong identity for Niseko Pizza, allowing me to focus on other aspects of the business during it’s expansion.

Jon has been very attentive to our requests, and we have enjoyed his quick turn around time. No request has been too big or too small, and we greatly appreciate this flexibility. Jon has a good eye, and has done a good job of integrating our own design ideas.

When we approached Niseko Design with our concept for a new international festival venture, Jon immediately understood the nature of our vision. In a short time he was able to pull together for us a range of creative ideas which have become the starting points for our global image and branding campaign – successfully translating our rough ideas into something really unique and memorable.

Having Jon create our new logo, website, brochure and signs has been the best thing we’ve done for our business. Our turnover doubled the year after we introduced the new brand.

When we started the process we were worried about finding time to work on it because we were still establishing other aspects of the business, but Jon made it as easy as it could be. He took a lead in finding and taking photos, coming up with concepts and generally doing as much as he could to keep things moving. Time after time he had an easy solution when we thought we’d reached a stumbling block. He always made time when we needed to chat and we left every conversation feeling positive and knowing that things had taken another step forward.

We’ve continued to have his help while we’ve learned to maintain our own website. I’d highly recommend working with Jon.

Over the past 18 months, Niseko Design’s marketing and design skills have assisted us tremendously at Niseko Real Estate. Dealing with Jon’s level of professionalism has always been a pleasure and rewarding experience, and NRE are excited to continue working with Niseko Design into the future.

Niseko Real Estate

As a successful, established publication house in a fairly competitive marketplace, increasingly changing with the advent of website technologies, we felt it high time to update our website.

Jon was brought on board and right from the get go he saw this more as a opportunity to breathe new life into the brand, as well as make our site both more visually interesting and functional in presenting our products. Listening to our requests, he’d developed a unique, creative and very eye-catching way for our clients to access our large library, as well as sharpening up the brand overall, helping with copy, navigation and overall presentation.

We’re very happy to recommend Jon’s services to others.
