My name is Belén A. Jurado Rebutty, or Belén AJR for short. I recently graduated from Kutztown University with a BFA in Communication Design. I love bright colors, bold design, groovy tunes, and seeing the absurdity in the world around me.
While at Kutztown University, I took an array of courses that prepared me for this creative field: advertising design, package design, photography, illustration, interactive design, typography, and many others. With these classes, I was able to sharpen my skills and explore my own style as an artist and designer. During my college years I also kept myself busy with freelance photography work, on-campus jobs, and being a vocalist in the After Hours jazz ensemble.
My mother made sure I never lost touch of our Ecuadorian culture, so despite being born and raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania, I was always surrounded by colorful foods, vibrant artwork, and timeless traditions. Not only do I take inspiration from my culture, but also from my loved ones. I'm glad to say all my close friends and family are very creative and imaginative individuals, bonding with them helps my own imagination flourish (and I get my creativity and hands-on attitude from my mom).
Whenever I'm not designing, I'm solving sudoku puzzles, trying out new recipes, or spending as much time as possible with my loved ones.Click here for my resumé. Let's design something! Or do some shenanigans. Your call :)
