Creates Marketing Materials Seen on a Global Scale

Jessica Sylvanus Lowe is a senior graphic designer at Welch Allyn in New York. She designs marketing materials and enjoys the variety of projects that she gets to work on. She’s also continuing her education within the industry. “I like seeing my work on such a large scale, especially globally,” she says.

Jessica is inspired by color. “When I see designs with beautifully chosen color themes, they reel me in. My heroes in the industry are all of those who design (because they want to], not because they have to.”

She cites the Photoshop and InDesign classes she took in school as being especially beneficial to her career growth. In 2013, Jessica earned an Associate of Applied Science in Graphic Design from The Art Institute of Austin. “The school was hands-on and personal. I felt like the environment was creative compared to other school campuses. It had a primary focus in the art, which surrounded me with peers of many talents.”

Looking to the future, Jessica believes that her industry will continue to be more digital and interactive. “I strongly believe print will never die because I don’t want it to. But everything will improve—from picture and video resolution to search engine optimization capabilities and analytics.”
