ART INSTITUTE OF TAMPA
Jarel Colon is a soon to be graduate of The Art Institute Tampa with a Bachelors of Fine Art in Graphic Design. Born in Cuba, his family faced many struggles, however he and his parents were eventually allowed to leave the island and move to the United States. It is here they could create a brighter future for themselves. Jarel brands himself as a versatile and organic designer with a diverse skillset consisting of branding, publication, packaging, illustrations, and motion graphics. Craving the early exploration phase at the beginning of each project, Jarel allows himself to set his creativity free while removing any possible guardrails that might hinder him from discovering a potential solution. He currently is the AAF Student Chapter president, as well as a member of aTrueFace.org, a student operated homeless awareness organization. During his free time Jarel dedicates himself to sharpening his illustrative abilities, which he tries to implement in his design work whenever he finds appropriate.
