Hi! I’m Jessica Zirkel-Rubin, an award-winning, UX-certified visual designer with 20+ years of experience in print and digital media.
I’m here to promote your business, support your customers, and delight your clients with timely, impeccable, user-friendly designs, including:
• original logos

• digital and print ads
• social media assets

Until June 2019, I was the Design Director for New Frontier, where I created a wide variety of 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.
