Jodi's passion for art dictates her attitude toward life — her devotion to her work, her thriving and award-winning studio. Jodi has over 20 years of experience as a designer and earned her BFA in graphic design and photography from the University of Michigan School of Art & Design.
After graduating, Jodi returned to her hometown of Miami where she worked as part of team designing signage and graphics for Universal Studios and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines among others. Jodi broadened her range of experience by art directing at a printing company where she gained valuable working knowledge of developing technologies and processes.
Since starting Orange Star in 1993, Jodi has worked on and led projects for clients as large as ALLTEL, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), The American Cancer Society, and Styx — and as varied as environmental graphics, logos & corp. identities, concert/tour merchandise, event graphics, publications, interactive new media and complex database driven websites.
Jodi is a voting member of the Recording Academy and a member of the Adobe Creative Advisory Panel.
In addition, Jodi is an avid photographer and mixed-media artist and frequently participates in art festivals throughout the Southeast.
