I AM A VISUAL COMMUNICATOR.
My strongest qualities are my enthusiasm, problem-solving abilities, and insight. Not skills you learn, but things you inherently are. When I am working in an unfamiliar area or on a difficult project, it is this plucky nature (combined with, at times, the wee hours of the morning) that most informs the way I work and what I create. I care about creating meaningful pieces, not just arbitrary designs.
I am most interested in solving problems, communicating, and creating meaningful stories through design, whether hands-on designing or product ideation.

WORDS FROM OTHER PEOPLE:
“Jacklynn Pham is the most professional and creative young person I’ve ever worked with. Her design skills are intuitive and imaginative. She is able to take a concept from the mere idea stages and bring it to fruition quickly. She has never missed a deadline and rarely has to produce more than one or two initial designs because she is skilled at listening to her client’s needs from the beginning, and translating them into a piece that is artful and easily understood.”
// Holly Barrett, Executive Director, Lodo District Inc.
“…It was a pleasure to work with her—she’s highly creative, personable, hard-working, reliable, and has a deep knowledge of all aspects of design.”
// Micah Williams, Marketing + Special Projects Manager at TEDxMileHigh
“Why aren’t you famous yet?”
// Erich Brandeau, lanky
> Resume traditionalist? Ugh, fine.

This month I packed up my over-priced New York room and headed west in a five-hour car ride. And now I’m Pittsburgh. I will miss New York City very much, and hope to return someday but for now I’m entering a graduate program at Carnegie-Mellon University. Q: What are you studying? A: […]
