Hi. I'm Jody.
I've spent the last 15 years exploring new ways to engage people emotionally through product and visual design. I have a passion for typography, color, research, housewares, namestorming, radio, science fiction, tiny writing, running alone, spreadsheets, and documenting my toddler on Instagram.
I studied Industrial Design at WWU, was the Creative Lead for Surface Design & Development for global consumer product brands in Seattle, and am currently acting as a design consultant for artists, chefs, and radio personalities.
According to LinkedIn, I can do all these things:
Surface Design, Color/Material/Finish Design, Industrial Design, Product Design, Design Strategy, Materials & Manufacturing Research, Art Direction, Process Development, Brainstorming, Design Thinking, User Experience Design, Graphic Design, Sketching, Photography, Illustration, Concept Development, Product Development, Brand Development, Trend Research & Analysis, Interdisciplinary Collaboration, Copywriting, Information Design, Product Rendering, Creative Briefs, Brand Research, Creative Direction, Color Palette Development, Consumer Products, Typography, CAD, Design for Manufacturing, Product Naming, Product Innovation, Trendwatching, Proof of Concept, Mood Boarding, and Seasonal Promotion Development for Retail.
Let me know if you'd like me to do some of that for you.
