A mission to create powerful design solutions that address local and global issues. As a social impact designer, the visual identities I create are built on a foundation of intersectionality, equity, and honesty. I thrive in environments that critique and correct for the sake of learning how to better communicate, engage, and empathize. I believe design is a radical tool for change when concept, research, collaboration, and humanity meld together. Fueled by purpose and innovation, I am eager to contribute to a more optimistic, accepting, and equitable future.
Imagine I’m holding a friendly hand out to you and giving you a warm smile. Can you see it? Hello, my name is Jane Blaise Ciminera! I graduated from Syracuse University with degrees in Communications Design and Women and Gender Studies. Design is my favored form of advocacy; it allows me to defend the causes I believe in, support the efforts of collective solidarity, and ignite sparks of emotion.
When I’m not designing, and I’ve forced all my applications to quit, I’m usually cuddling up to my precious kitty, Mr. Fang, a black cat with a very extensive bow tie collection, indulging in something sweet to satisfy my need for sugar, struggling to complete the Sunday Times crossword, or recording a to-do list, and then several sub-divisions of the original to-do list. I find creative expression in scrapbooking a recent adventure, curating playlists for every mood imaginable, cooking new recipes in the kitchen, and discovering inspiration in films and books.
Let’s be passionately curious together and create something powerful.
