About Jen Thayer
I have a BFA in Graphic Design and graduated from East Tennessee State University with Summa cum Laude honors.
Currently, I am employed with Implus Footcare, LLC as an in-house graphic designer. This position has a primary focus on package design, while also involving photography, marketing design, and display/installation pieces.
My design interests are not limited to a single field, which allows me to pursue several areas of focus. The coursework I studied pertaining to graphic design includes package design, Layout and Production, the Student Graphic Design Workshop, Typography, Illustration, and development of the campaign for the National Student Advertising Competition.
I interned at Jarden Applied Materials then Newell Brands, under Timothy C. Delong during the summers of 2015 and 2016. During that time, I participated in several design areas of existing product lines. This participation included designing the Shakespeare® 2015 Trimmer Accessory Catalog, the Shakespeare® QuickConnect logo, Interface design on the WebWhip products, as well as several icons and informational graphics for office use.
