My name is Jerlyn.
Take a look
You've reached my portfolio.
So, this is me.
Caribbean-born American Polymath. Nerd. Foodie. Sr. Art Director. RIT Alum. Gamer. 2x Ultramarathoner. 3x Marathoner. 2x Tough Mudder Finisher. Illustrator. I love Adobe and Doctor Who.
For the past decade, I have fully immersed myself in creating interactive digital experiences by studying screens of gadgets that are popular to varying demographics. I believe that everything operates in multi-screen and I enjoy creating rich, attention-grabbing experiences that not only communicates—but engages the user. I am an early adopter who followed my dreams from the Caribbean (born in Dominica and lived in St. Croix, U. S. Virgin Islands) to reside in New York City after attending college in Rochester, NY. I am also a published illustrator who has a background in development and design. I've worked on clients such as LG Electronics, CIMZIA, Dice.com, Cartier, Sanofi Aventis, Sanofi Pasteur, Cap Gemini, Bank of America, General Mills, Barnes and Noble, Myrbetriq, Pristiq, Mucinex and Heineken to name a few. As a graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology, an institute that reflects degrees of the modern times, I've studied New Media Design which influenced my love of trying to predict what the next innovative niche in Advertising might be.
Other than that, for the past two years I've been a fitness enthusiast who tried to teach others about the importance of diet and exercise. Since I enjoy pushing myself physically and mentally, I took on the challenge of completing 2 marathons (I'm training for a 3rd). I started running in 2008 shortly after my brother passed away. I have also done 2 tough mudders to inspire people to push themselves to new challenges that they never saw themselves doing.
In my free time, I listen to podcasts (One of my favourites is Stuff You Should Know) where I learn new things and take on 30-day challenges to improve myself.
I've been quite fortunate to work on these brands over the past few years within my career.
Feel free to look around.
