UTAH VALLEY UNIVERSITY

Jordyn Tilby is a recent BFA grad. Post-graduation, Jordyn continues to challenge her creative thinking by working as an in-house designer for a small, local baby brand company, keeping a steady stream of freelance work, and running her newly-founded non-profit. She likes to work on many projects at once and finds joy in the problem solving. Her current interest is custom typography and exploring how she can use custom type in brand identity projects. Jordyn hopes to be a creative director one day at her own agency, perhaps. She would love to end up in New York eventually, but visits every year in the meantime. Jordyn is an intuitive designer and loves many mediums of art, especially music. She enjoys classic rock, new wave indie, and, of course, Kanye West.
