Jonathan VanDerhoof is the graphic designer at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy.

VanDerhoof’s first introduction to the field was as an intern at the Mackinac Center from 2009 to 2011. From there, he completed his associates degree and went on to work at The Dow Chemical Co.

He won second place at the 2014 State Policy Network annual meeting in the "Audience Engagement Award" for his design of a booth promoting VoteSpotter, and a Michigan Education Association official referred to his graphic work on the Center's August opt out informational campaign as "Madison Avenue quality."

VanDerhoof currently resides in Midland, Mich., where he also attends Saginaw Valley State University. He looks forward to receiving his bachelor's degree in the spring of 2016.

When he isn't designing something new, you can find him playing a variety of sports, boating, or relaxing on the lake.
