I’m Jessica Zirkel-Rubin, an award-winning graphic designer who blends out-of-the-box creativity with pixel-level precision to deliver impeccable work. Recently I’ve been focused on logos, branding/identity materials, websites, and party/promotional swag, but I also have experience creating social media assets, digital and print ads, pop-up store/trade show displays, product labels, press kits, and more (let’s talk!).
Until June 2019, I was the Design Director for New Frontier, where I created a wide variety of digital and print marketing materials for corporate and non-profit clients. (Some of that work is displayed on this site.) Previously, I was the Webmaster for The Newark Museum, and earlier, worked in marketing and usability research for pioneering children’s online media company, MaMaMedia.com.
I earned a doctorate in Instructional Media and Technology from Teachers College, Columbia University, where I focused on constructionist learning, usability research, and virtual museums. While studying for a master’s degree in Educational Technology from Lehigh University, I built my first website (almost 25 years ago!). I attended the University of Pennsylvania for undergrad, studying American Civilization and Art History. My graphic design and fine arts education includes classwork at The University of the Arts (Philadelphia), The School of Visual Arts (NYC), and The Visual Arts Center of New Jersey.
