Jono Brandel (b. May 22, 1986) relies on the combination of two fundamental disciplines: graphic design and computer programming. The results of this mixture vary in form, but usually have a screen-based component. He explores procedural aesthetics.

Jono studied Design | Media Arts with a minor in Latin at UCLA. He went on to receive two artist grants one at cheLA and the other at Fabrica. He is now a member of Vrse, an expanding universe of virtual reality experiences. His work has been showcased at the Tate Modern, Siggraph, FITC, and Japan Media Arts Festival.

He has also had the pleasure to perform alongside Boys Noize, Deadmau5, Crystal Castles, and many others accompanying their music with moving image.
