About Jon Phillips

I’m the co-founder of Fabricatorz, a global art technology studio.

I’m the co-founder of Artifaq.

I’m co-founder and serve on the board for the non-profit, Fabricatorz Foundation which hosts Bassel Khartabil Free Culture Fellowship, New Palmyra and the Font Library.

I co-founded Oui.Gallery, a global art gallery emerging artists making innovative shows in Saint Louis & Hong Kong.

I’m known for my early passion for Open Source Software, Hardware and Free Culture. My first Open Source Project is the drawing app, Inkscape. I created and still maintain Openclipart.

I also am known for my early work on Creative Commons, (, and Qi Hardware. All three projects inspired me to go to the source of manufacturing, China. I lived in Beijing for a number of years to learn hardware manufacturing where I worked with technologists and artists.

I work daily on creative technology projects with an emphasis right now on crypto and emerging decentralized technologies.

I like to cycle with my friends around the world.
