Hey! My name is Alen Jacob. I'm an art director/designer based out of Dallas, Tx (currently remote). I set out on this path because of my skillset behind a camera and that same eye for composition, balance and detail led me to design and more.
MY CAREER SO FAR ____________________
I started as a freelancer working with local start-ups in the DFW area. This experience gave me a crash course in the value of personalizing a message for smaller audiences and then planning to scale as these different companies grew. I learned the principles of building a strong foundation behind branding that can grow and change as necessary. I also gained the technical skills behind design, photography, videography, and animation. This experience became invaluable as I moved to NY worked as an intern at OceanX as a Social Media Designer. I put my skills to good use scaling the company's social media pages and building out identity systems for multiple content series.
By the summer of 2019, I joined Peloton as a Design Intern. I got the opportunity to progress from being an intern to a freelance junior designer to a full-time designer while getting a chance to be part of the global growth of the brand. I partnered with copywriters and art directed/designed assets for content releases. I help brand different sub-groups and internal comms within Peloton. I developed storyboards and partnered with animators and editors for launch videos. At Peloton, I got the chance to use the culmination of my experiences on a variety of projects to hone my craft and become better creative overall.
I am now looking for freelance art direction/designer roles that are preferably remote, otherwise local to the Austin, TX area. Download my resume here.
