Jon Ritt (CCS Art '18)

As a designer, art director, and creative director, Jon Ritt mixes art and commerce to create stories full of distinction, intrigue, and attraction to help brands come to life. He enjoys his role leading talented people to make the world a more interesting and creative place. He finds that mixed minds create powerful ideas especially when surrounded by artistry and clarity, allowing everyone to imagine and realize a brighter future. With this philosophy, Ritt started his own company, Jon Ritt Design Co., in 2012 and now serves as the Executive Creative Director / Chief Creative Officer at The Clorox Corporation / Electro. As part of the 50th anniversary celebration at CCS, Ritt led the effort to build the College’s brand identity and designed its very first logo.
