Hi! My name is Jill and I'm a graphic designer! I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a bachelor's in art, a minor in art history and a master's in graphic design from Iowa State University. I'm exploring the world of graphic design and learning something new every day. My current interests are in book structure and design, motion graphics, and identity systems, but I'm always up for an engaging challenge.
In my free time I like to travel, read or find a new knitting pattern. I enjoy trying new things (especially food), am a bit of a geek at heart and have a small photography/knitting business. If I'm not behind a good book or my computer, there's a good chance I'm behind the camera.
Things I Like
I love taking pictures of pets & wild life. It provides an opportunity to capture big personalities & the spontaneity that comes with them.
Marching band was an influential part of my school experience. It is still one of my favorite things to see during the summer & fall. The audio & visual storytelling combine in new ways each time.
Flora have a way of creating a soft natural grace in photos. I enjoy the color & shadow opportunity that can be played with.
Travel has given me the opportunity to experience wonderful food, culture & art. I've grown in my love & understanding of why photography is so visually interesting & engaging to me.
