About the Speaker
Jessica Moore is a graphic designer with 20 years of experience and holds an MFA in Integrated Design; her art is the perfect antidote to a career in corporate design. The work bridges digital and analog while using new technology to construct layered, laser-cut, stained wooden scenes that are stitched together to recreate the landscapes that she loves throughout the Rocky Mountain West. Previously Moore worked for professional services firms, and after spending 8 weeks nestled at a camp in Pike National Forest in the summer of 2015, she launched her business to both engage her passion for the mountains and goal to never going back into an office. At camp, she would fall asleep thinking about recreating the landscape in layers and the vibrant hues that surrounded her, and she is thrilled with the digital creation and tactile nature of the end product. She became a full-time RVer, so that she may be more directly inspired by her surroundings, wherever she parks.
About the Wayfinding Series
The Wayfinding Series connects students to local creative professionals. With equal parts inspiration and honesty, speakers will share their path towards a successful creative life and all of the twists and turns involved in that journey. Addressing career-focused issues such as industry trends, relevant skills, making connections, and professional fulfillment, speakers will highlight that there is no one way to find and live a successful, creative career. Speakers will represent a variety of creative employment opportunities, connecting to multiple academic departments and revealing that professional creatives are found in diverse and sometimes surprising fields.
