Hello all!

I've decided to register on the forums to give you all a brief introduction to myself. I'm the new Art Director at IO Interactive where I'm responsible for just about everything related to all the visuals concerning the Hitman franchise.

IO Interactive cares deeply about what the community thinks about the series. Although I've personally kept very much behind the scenes on previous videogame titles I've worked on, IO's desire to engage with its fans has motivated me to step out from the shadows.

With that in mind, I'd like to point you all to a Twitter feed that I have just set up, and would love for as many fans to follow - particularly those with an interest in videogame art and development. While I won't be sharing any screenshots or concept art pieces just yet, I'm aiming to share exclusive imagery on that feed when we're ready to release material.

In the meantime I'll be posting photos from around the studio (sadly no spoilers), and posting random thoughts as I go about my day-to-day business working with the talented developers at IO.

Follow me at @IO_Jonathan (https://twitter.com/IO_Jonathan)

Hope to see you there!

JoN

Indeed welcome Jon.
I'm not that into twitter or facebook (barely ever use them). But for you, I'll make an exception. Good luck with your work, looking forward to see what you've got :)

We've given Jonathan the 'official' badge now, so you know he's legit. I also edited the OP to make it easier to follow him on Twitter, which you definitely should.

I've also created a new post on the IOI website that introduces Jonathan and our new Lead Animator, Kenn, in some more detail. Take a look: http://www.ioi.dk/?p=1875
