On Thursday, April 2, 2015, MAS Context organized a studio visit to the JNL graphic design. The JNL is lead by Jason Pickleman, one of Chicago’s most sought-after graphic designers and a longtime collaborator of MAS Context as well as a current member of our board of advisors. His work has appeared in several issues of MAS Context, including our first cover and our first interview. His talk about “Language” during our first MAS Context Analog event is also not one to miss.
Jason Pickleman’s studio specializes in the creation of graphic objects of unique cultural significance. Catalogues, site-specific artworks, dimensional signage, advertising, brand identities and related collateral are part and parcel of his daily work flow. With over 20 years of work, Jason has designed the identity for a multitude of clients including Blackbird, Big Star, Avec, Publican, The Wit, The Museum of Contemporary Photography, Harrington College of Art and Design, Millennium Park, and Expo Chicago. Jason was included in the 2007 exhibition “Young Chicago” at the Art Institute of Chicago, and his work has subsequently been placed into the museum’s permanent collection. You can see more of his work at www.jnldesign.com.
Thank you very much to Jason Pickleman and Dan Marsden for taking the time to share their work, and to all of you who attended the event.
