I'm

Jaz

Cole.

GRAPHIC DESIGNER + 
ILLUSTRATOR

My background includes extensive experience in graphic design, digital illustration, classical painting, and art direction.

 

I aspire to create work that invokes feelings of nostalgia, lightheartedness, humor and empathy, and enjoy combining complimentary and contrasting elements to create vibrant, playful and thought-provoking visual balance, with a minimalist aesthetic.

 

Visual narratives often envelop my aesthetic as storytelling is an important part of my history. As a visual artist and designer, I have the opportunity to continue and expand on that storytelling tradition and I plan to do so indefinitely, while helping others along the way.
