• I recently moved to Seattle from Lander, Wyoming. With 8 years of experience as a designer, most of my experience has come from smaller teams where I've often sketched initial concepts for projects that I also later press-checked. I manage projects, advise interns, mentor junior designers, and delegate to freelancers. As a student, I studied magazine journalism and design. Today, I love sharing meaningful stories with niche audiences.
     
    I know that teams energize my work and boundaries give clarity. I never mistake en-dashes for em-dashes. I have the vision of an art director but the detail of a production designer. My Strengthsfinder Profile: Adaptability, Individualization, Ideation, Strategic, Maximizer.
     
    I enjoy volunteering locally with design/creative organizations (Creative Mornings, AIGA), and playing outside. I help lead day hikes and short backpack trips with my church community, and I volunteer as a belayer with Peak 7 so kids can go rock climbing.
     
    I'm also at www.about.me/allijack, and over at LinkedIn & Twitter.
