Let me take a moment and introduce myself.
I'm a transgender woman. Now that we've got that out of the way, my name is T Jay and Letter T graphics is me.
I graduated from Colorado State University in 2002 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, graphic design emphasis. I have been professionally designing since 2004.
I worked for 8 years as an advertising designer for the Greeley Tribune in Greeley, Colorado. From there, I spent 3 and a half years as the art director and senior designer for Parelli Natural Horsemanship in Pagosa Springs, followed by a year as the graphics technician for High Plains Library District back in Greeley.
I now find myself to be the Content Marketing Manager for Visit Pagosa Springs and I love my job!
I have also continued to pursue graphic design as a freelance designer outside of my daily responsibilities since graduating from college.
My professional and freelance career have exposed me to a broad range of projects, from branding and identity, to multi-page magazine layout, packaging and experiential design through directional signs and banners.
