In the digital age, designers that were classically trained in print have to be careful to not limit their career trajectory to a single path. Jude will speak about his start at a high profile design firm and how he went on to pursue personal projects while still maintaining his current career path to elevate himself to the next level.
Jude graduated from the Tyler School of Art in 2001 with a BFA in Graphic Arts and Design, where he went on to teach design and typography courses for five years. After that he taught illustration at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia for several years. While he was a part of the design and illustration duo Headcase Design (2002-2007), Jude designed books for such pop-culture phenomena as the Broadway show ?Wicked? and HBO?s "The Sopranos?, as well as the best-selling book The Baby Owner?s Manual, which he also illustrated. Other clients include the New York Times, SONY, UPS, Target, Square/Enix, Brooks Running, Courtney Love, Disney, and Toyota/SCION.
Jude?s design and illustration have received awards from Graphis, Communication Arts, AIGA, Print Magazine, Society of Illustrators, 3x3, and American Illustration, and his non-commercial work has been exhibited internationally.
