Steve Jones

First entering the balloon world as a twister in 1996, Steven Jones has established a name for himself as one of the most significant and impactful balloon decorators in the US. He has received over two dozen different awards over his career for design and décor, most notably Designer of the Year at 2005’s Ballooniversity®, a burton + BURTON® convention. Steven’s work has been showcased in various trade publications over the years as well as in international publications and on nationally televised programs and broadcasts. He is also credited with coining the term “deco-twister,” a term he used in 2003 to describe the blending of non-round and round balloon techniques. 

In addition to being a successful balloon decorator, Steven has also made a name for himself as an educator and an established industry producer. In 2006, he founded AeraDeco Video and, the balloon decor industry’s largest source of educational videos. In 2008, Steven founded FLOAT, a convention for intermediate- to advanced-level balloon decorators. This year’s event has grown to nearly 400 attendees. Most recently, Steven began Balloon Professionals magazine, a trade publication exclusively for balloon professionals, decorators, and entertainers. In 2015, for his combined efforts as an artist, educator, and producer, Steven was honored to receive the Don Cheeseman Memorial Career Achievement Award. This recognition is granted to those individuals who have made a significant impact on the balloon industry.
