September 15, 2019

VCFA’s MFA in Graphic Design is incredibly excited to announce our second Visiting Designer/Critic for our Fall 2019 Residency: International speaker, Adobe Creative Residency alumna, and award-winning infographic designer, Jessica Bellamy, graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Louisville (UofL) with degrees in Drawing (BFA), Graphic Design (BFA), Pan African Studies (BA), and a minor in Communication.

As a former Neurodevelopmental Science research analyst at UofL and community organizer, in 2015, Jessica created a social enterprise that combines grassroots organizing, research, and information graphics. She named this business GRIDS: The Grassroots Information Design Studio. She has been featured in Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global, Forbes, Communication Arts Magazine, The Great Discontent, Create Magazine, Creative Mornings, Slack, The Dieline, Revision Path, and on Adobe’s Project 1324 (viewable through Facebook).
