MIAMI AD SCHOOL @ PORTFOLIO CENTER

Courtney Jacobs is a student at the Miami Ad School @ Portfolio Center. She attended Furman University, where she played softball and received a Bachelor’s degree in studio art. Courtney believes in the power of design to share stories, tell truths, and create positive changes in the world. Her work ranges from packaging to branding to experiential design, but in every project, she focuses on the entire experience and goes beyond what is expected. Outside of her design work, she enjoys pottery, macramé, and any craft that allows her to work with her hands. She feels most inspired while collaborating with other creatives and spending time alone in nature. Courtney will graduate in September 2019. She is looking forward to sharing her passions and connecting with others through design.
