Jade is a New York City based graphic designer with years of varied experience. Time has made her knowledgeable, perceptive and resourceful to every task she applies herself to. Best known for layout design, logo creation, retouch work and advertising, her goal is to incorporate her design experience in a thriving professional environment.
Originally a makeup artist for print, independent film and video, she began to teach herself to retouch photos with an artist’s eye several years ago. Soon, other makeup artists began requesting her to lend her artful approach for retouching to their portfolio photos. This led to work designing logos, comp cards and advertising inserts for a cast of New York City’s most diverse artists including makeup artists, belly dancers and performers.
Jade’s design work ultimately inspired her to return to school and earn an Associate’s Degree in Communication Design. To further her interests, she continues to do freelance design work during her time as a committed full-time student at the Fashion Institute of Technology. She is working towards her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Advertising Design with a minor in Art History and Creative Technology. She expects to graduate in May 2016. Read Less
