Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Katie Jansen

New York, NY, USA
As an experienced art director, my focus is on all aspects of the luxury industry with clients around the world. I have broad experience in everything from brand strategy and identity design to art direction and production. I often work directly with clients, produce and manage photo shoots, oversee press production, and supervise junior designers. After hours I am a budding foodie, with a palate that ranges from truffles to Twinkies.
