Students to Watch in 2012
Rhode island school of design
Jeffrey Waldman is a graphic designer currently pursuing an MFA at Rhode Island School of Design. After earning an undergraduate degree in architecture, he worked in an exhibition design studio in Zurich where he came to discover that, indeed, graphic design was his calling. Since then he has been lucky enough to intern for or work with studios such as Njenworks and Project Projects. Jeffrey is looking forward to what comes next and applying what he's learned into his practice.
