AUBURN UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF INDUSTRIAL + GRAPHIC DESIGN
Jackson Glass is a senior at Auburn University, graduating in May 2019 with a BFA in Graphic Design. He loves creating visual clarity from complexity and solving simple problems with comprehensive concepts. Great typography has been known to make him swoon. You’ll find him listening to music wherever he goes, and he’ll exploit any excuse to talk about it. He is driven by the love of giving a body to others’ voices, ideas, and enterprises. Jackson focused on branding and web development during his time as a student, refining the use of typography and grid systems to strengthen his work. Designing at Auburn’s Office of Inclusion and Diversity has instilled an invaluable focus on empathy and inclusion in his life and work that he will always treasure. At his core, Jackson is a student, and he looks forward to experiences that expand his understanding of design and coding through exercising them professionally.
