JayRoeder's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional
United States
Born and raised in Minnesota, at an early age I could always be found with a pencil or pen in hand drawing Ninja Turtles or Nintendo characters… most often on homework and in class at times when I wasn’t supposed to be drawing. Math is overrated anyway. Growing up, it was clear to me that I would pursue a career and lifestyle in the arts. My primary sources of inspiration have always been music, music, family, music, friends, and music. I’m of the belief that designing without some form of music blasting is sacrilegious. Currently residing in the tropical climate of Fairfield, CT, I’m most likely drawing something right now, even if it’s a Saturday night… so lame.

Jay Roeder is a freelance designer and illustrator that has over 6 years of experience in the graphic design industry. A graduate of Sacred Heart University in 2006 with a double major in graphic design and illustration, Jay started his career at several of the top promotional agencies in the country, establishing a solid foundation of knowledge and skill sets. At the various agencies he has worked, Jay has fostered and overseen major initiatives and campaigns for many notable international brands. He also taught design classes as an adjunct professor at Sacred Heart University in 2006.

Jay enjoys working with clients to achieve their design and identity needs. He understands that each project is unique, and through extensive research and solid communication, each and every goal can be met and exceeded.

I can't believe I found this, my family bought some of your artwork and then I just randomly found this
I live in Minneapolis so it was cool to see that you were born in Minnesota.
