jonathan arban, designer

Jonathan stumbled across his passion for design in a very familiar place - Legos. After building his ideas as a kid, he found himself sketching interiors during high school algebra and would later help build stage props for theater productions. It was at this point that he realized his excitement for taking ideas from sketch to reality.

Jonathan earned his Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from The Art Institute and after a few positions with independent architects and furniture companies, was brought into MSA as a consultant. His skill and technique in 3D rendering (among other things) elevated MSA's design presentations and after a few short months, Jonathan was offered a full-time position. He is currently working on new offices for Universal Music Group at 201 Spear, a new Philz Coffee location in Hollywood, and Macy's retail in both Guam and Downtown Los Angeles.

As a Sunday school teacher, Jonathan is heavily involved with his church and can usually be found bowling, playing basketball, or connecting with his inner Bobby Fisher through a game of chess.
