This is the portfolio site of Onno de Jong. He goes under the moniker of Circular Creation and uses the cliche to think outside the box to sell himself. He can sell you as well, and he can legitimately claim to think outside of the box, as he spent 20 years studying philosophy, which is essentially the art of the conceptual tools by which we can think out of the box. He does design, illustration, photography, computer consulting and philosophical counseling.

I created this site in 2003, which is lightyears ago in web-time. I am currently thinking of creating a new one, with HTML5 and CSS3 goodness, but I'm also writing a book, which has precedence, so if it takes a while, well, that's how it goes. In the meantime, visit
