I'm Jordan, an illustrator & designer working in storytelling.
I work in all kinds of media, from digital to gouache and acrylic, at all kinds of scales, but my primary interests will always be color and light. My career began in the world of graphic design, making work for restaurants and tech companies, but I've always been drawn to the expression in illustration. I spend my time working on color and line, working to help people find as much delight in the natural world as I do.
Who I Am & Why
I am a queer illustrator & designer (I use they/them pronouns) with a passion for cooking and a history of moving around the world. I'm particularly interested in storytelling in all its forms. What are the stories we tell about ourselves? What stories shape the way we see the world? I want to know about the threads that connect the world together, from mycorrhizal networks binding forests to the memetic evolution of in-jokes.
After attending college at Northeastern University and graduating with a shiny degree in design, I moved to Texas, and then to Brooklyn, NY. I've worked for Apple, as the in-house designer for Verts Mediterranean Grill, and then as a designer and illustrator for Nulo Pet Food. I started my own business in mid-2017 and have kept it going since! Currently, I work full-time at Joe Coffee Company as an illustrator & designer. Youv'e probably seen my work if you're in NYC!
