  • About Studio Laphona

    Designing, developing and delivering quality web consumables for over 10 years. Our mission is to transform the clients goals, dreams and aspirations into visually compelling and highly interactive online media.

    Studio Laphona is the alias of John Tyner, a choice-cut, seasoned web developer marinated overnight and baked at 350 for an hour. John started his career unknowingly when he manually transcribed to paper a 4000 line integer program from his Apple II+ in 1984, just to type it back in again with his own additions. Since then he's learned how to copy/paste - and to cook, which he delights in almost as much as writing music, playing pokemon cards, reading sci-fi, watching Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes and in general having good times with his family. He also enjoys designing and building machines using PHP, CSS, Flash and javascript.

    Why he is writing about himself, right now, in the third person has a simple explanation. This 3rd person perspective has a more objective and officious air to it - masking the fact that it's really just self-indulgent twaddle.

    In addition to Studio Laphona, John is also a pilot of Rev Rocket, a venture focused on creating engaging rev-share applications. He is grateful to act as an all-in-one mobile taco-truck-of-a-web-shop to agencies such as Spring Studio, McGregor Shott, Keating McGee, and Design by Gershoni. His content management system, ZAOcms (version 3.0), has been making web site maintenance easier during its' brief existence.
