Jen Epstein is a designer and animator living and working in Brooklyn (though she frequently tries to escape -- check out her travel blog !) After graduating MICA's BFA program in 2007 she took a position with MTV. Three years later she ventured out on her own to start Pixel Party: her one-woman design shop specializing in early 90s references, animated patterns and general fabulousness. Since then, she's honed her craft working with a variety of clients including Ray-Ban, Ford, AT&T, Starbucks, Showtime and The New York Times. Her projects have received recognition from the Art Directors Club, Promax BDA, Creativity International and the One Show.
She recently took a full time position (again!) with MTV as the Director of Motion and then parted ways to join the team at Showtime where she is current an Art Director.
When she's not designing or animating, you can likely find her running in Prospect Park or walking her cat around Park Slope.
