Hi! I'm Jane. I'm a graphic designer and illustrator who loves vibrant colors and playful designs. I currently work as an Art Director at Spot, a creative agency with clients including 3M, Old Dutch and Caribou Coffee (fun fact: Spot was founded by Patty Voje—a designer, painter and also my mom!). After living in New York City and Los Angeles for over a decade, I relocated to my hometown of the Twin Cities, where I don't have to worry about L train delays or 405 traffic. Now, I'm halfway between the two with long, cold winters for fueling creativity. I previously spent eight years in the toy industry working at Mattel, where I designed toy and game packaging for clients including Nickelodeon, Disney, Universal, AMC, Netflix, Lucasfilm, BBC and more. I earned my BFA in Graphic Design from Parsons School of Design, with a semester abroad at Central Saint Martins in London.
In 2021, I launched my online shop, Prints by Jane, where I sell art prints inspired by my love of mid-century architecture, retro signs, and my handsome cat, Clarence. My prints are also for sale in the gift shop of the Museum of Neon Art in Los Angeles and have been awarded by American Illustration. When I'm not designing, you can catch me at the roller rink practicing my "scissors", or searching antique shops for 1960's Space Age objects to add to my collection.
