Jon Furman's Profile
Hello! My name is Jon and I run derailleur. I'm a graphic designer, based in Buffalo, NY, with my own design company -Nuthatch Design. After a couple successful years, I wanted to stretch the boundaries of my creativity and produce artwork that was accessible to the public and as green as possible, so I launched derailleur. Silk screening seemed to be a natural evolution as I have a background in printmaking and love the hands-on aspect of it.
The name, derailleur, has dual meanings. Def. 1) a bicycle part that shifts gears. 2) one who "derails" a broken social system in order to set it right; and activist of sorts.
All of us can effect positive change in the world by creating art, music, writing, volunteering for an organization, getting involved in a local club, or planning a protest to raise awareness of an issue! Educate…
