Jazz is a graphic designer and illustrator currently based in Edinburgh. They're open to freelance work and entry level opportunities within the UK publishing and creative industries.
They believe that through design we can raise awareness of social issues, and create work that has a positive impact on the environment and communities. With a focus on publications and branding, Jazz thinks that words and visual material are of equal importance and their designs encourage a synthesis of the two. However, the desire to make a better world doesn't mean they don't enjoy the smaller projects - zines and doodles are a go to for happy making!
