I am a writer and graphic designer born and raised in West Virginia. As a mixed race, mixed gender, and mixed genre artist, I dedicate my work to fighting white supremacy, celebrating black / brown / queer / trans liberation, and healing home. My social justice practice starts with grounding my creativity in the mountains – in its histories, lived experiences, and futures.

Skills

I offer the following skills:

Graphic Design

I love layout. I design print publications and promotional materials, including literary journals, brochures, program booklets, posters, postcards, business cards, and digital ads.

Book Design

As a writer, I love working with authors to create a distinctive cover and/or interior layout that evokes the essence of their writing.

Web Design

I love designing the visual concept for a new website. I focus on creating a unique logo mark and sensory experience using texture, color, and typeface. I'm not a web developer; I install a Wordpress CMS and customize responsive themes.

Media & Communications

I love brainstorming and envisioning messaging and communications strategies for grassroots groups. I support campaigns by writing articles, press releases, or copy for grant applications; creating compelling social media content; or through basic photography, video editing, and sound design.

Featured Work

I support artists, activists, and healers who are also women, queer and trans people, and people of color.

Testimonials

When I asked Jai to update my catalog it was because I realized I didn’t have time to do it myself and I trusted them to do it competently. I underestimated what a difference their work would make! When I received the updated file from them, I was blown away by the thoughtfulness, creativity and skill they had put into it. They went above and beyond what I asked and used their talent to create a much more professional and polished catalog than what I had before.
