Hi! I’m Jessica Zirkel-Rubin, an award-winning, UX-certified visual designer.
I LOVE A PROJECT!
I’m here to channel my creative energy into promoting your business, supporting your customers, and delighting your clients with timely, impeccable, user-friendly design. Recently my focus has been logos, brand collateral, 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.
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. Previously, I was the Webmaster for The Newark Museum, and earlier, worked in marketing/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, interface design, and virtual museums. While studying for an MS in Educational Technology from Lehigh University, I built my first website and fell in love with the medium. My undergraduate degree is from the University of Pennsylvania. 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. I am UX Certified, with a specialty in interface design, by the Nielsen Norman Group, a world leader in user experience research.
