 Jéda is a fourth-year Graphic Design student at OCAD University in Toronto, Ontario. She specializes in typography and constantly challenges himself to learn more. When not in front of her computer, she can be found drinking generation amounts of coffee, watching Friends, or searching out the best grub and beer in Toronto.  

And yes, bad kerning does keep her up at night.

As a Graphic Designer, Photographer and Musician I use my skills to inspire my creations and work. I work with multiple mediums to convey new ideas and inspire the design movements within my community. I am currently focusing my design thesis at OCAD University towards the music industry and researching how I can design a way to visualize sound in a new way. Design is limitless, my philosophy is to push the boundaries of what design can do.

I am a fourth year advertising student at OCAD University. I am based in Toronto but am originally from Guelph, Ontario. If you can’t find me at school or working in my local coffee shop, you can find me scouring the west end for the best new restaurants and bars. I’m quite a bit of a foodie. I’m also passionate about the environment, travelling, sitcoms, home decor, music & festivals, and I have a secret evil passion for print media.
