About

Symon Oliver Co-Founded ALSO Collective with Antonio Lennert. ALSO Collective is a multidisciplinary digital media and print design studio located in Toronto Canada. Oliver graduated from OCAD University's Faculty of Design, with a liberal studies minor in Media Studies.

While at OCAD University Oliver Co-Directed the OCAD U Student Press, worked with the university's Mobile Experience Lab, and Centre for Innovation in Visualization and Data Driven Design (CIV-DDD) with teams exploring data visualization, mapping, gestural editing, and mindfulness, and play.

Oliver is currently focusing on ALSO Collective, a series of design inquiry workshops with the group ABCD, and exploring the programming of space with Kevin Booth of Towards.info.

This website is intended to remain a constant work in progress. It is here for me to break, reconfigure, and learn from. Everything from the back end and front end code, the distant server, data streams, analytics, SEO, and content will be meddled with.
