Assistant to the Chairperson
Seven years of problem solving in visual communication—particularly in print design and print pre-production—are just the beginning of her design career. “Once a designer, always a designer,” Jill says. Anyone who has worked with her knows that she approaches design with an eye for precision and perfection. Jill holds an A.A.S. in Photography; B.F.A. in Graphic Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology; an M.S. in Education from Walden University, with specialization in Mathematics, and an M.F.A. in Computer Graphics and Interactive Media from Pratt Institute, with a focus on Digital Video. After earning her M.F.A. from Pratt, Jill worked with a multimedia production house to create both packaging and interface designs for CDs and DVDs. Since joining Pratt’s Department of Digital Arts in 2004, as the Assistant to the Chair, Jill has begun teaching a Digital Imaging course at the school. Furthermore, in the Fall of 2010, Jill was accepted into the Master Teaching Certificate program in Art and Design Education at Pratt Institute. She is currently working in the History of Art and Design department where she has the opportunities to express her interests in the design field by art directing course related print materials, website design and video editing. Jill continues to believe that pursuing different areas of interests can be satisfying.
