Jill enjoys bringing visual harmony, clarity and delight to initiatives that increase awareness, justice and education. In her position as Creative Director at Acadia Center, as well as her design studio, Visual Aid Society, she relishes the opportunity to use design for social impact. Working with people who challenge the status quo has been her north star, whether they are clients with an international impact or hyperlocal change-makers innovating right in their own backyards.
Jill received her bachelor’s degree in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute and her master’s degree in Industrial Design from the Rhode Island School of Design. She is an alumna of the Goldman Sachs + Tory Burch 10K Small Businesses program, and has taught graphic design, usability and photography at the City University of New York. She has been a visiting lecturer and critic at American University, Syracuse University, Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Arizona State University.
