b. 1986, HK.



Jonathan Buske is a native Finger Lakes New Yorker residing in Long Island with his beautiful wife, 2 daughters and rescued canine. 

His interest in design began in the 1980's with the admiration of skateboard graphics and the DIY art approach spawned in the underground music culture where he developed and honed the ethos he lives and designs by to date. Much of his youth and adult life has been spent touring, playing and writing music with his bands — formerly Another Victim, Santa Sangre, Rag Men, and Terror, currently The Promise, Maximum Penalty, and Manipulate.

In 2008, he began his professional design career at Bravado International where he designed merchandise for many multi-million selling artists including The Beatles, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and The Doors as well as numerous inspirational bands of his youth — namely Slayer, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Pantera, The Misfits, NWA, and Wu-Tang Clan. 

A leap of faith in 2012 led to the freelance development of Buske Design and in 2014 the opportunity to design for the Sam Ash Music marketing department was taken until the Fall of 2016 when Buske Design became a full-time and current priority.
