  Some of my recent work

About

I'm Jacob Blank, a 20 y.o. visual designer and front-end developer; creating intuitive user experiences within beautifully crafted interfaces. Lately, I have found myself most attracted to mobile app design, challenged by its inherently limited screen real estate and unique interaction capabilities.

Currently attending Drexel University, I reside in the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts and Design pursuing a degree in Interactive Digital Media.

Outside of the classroom, I am currently creating an app, like to cook and fine-tune my 'chef' skills, and enjoy exploring my current residency of Philadelphia.
