Anne Jordan earned her BFA in Graphic Design from the Rhode Island School of Design, and her MFA in Design/Visual Communications from Virginia Commonwealth University's School of the Arts. Anne has participated in conferences around the world, speaking about design process and education. Together with her partner Mitch Goldstein, she is principal of the interdisciplinary design studio Hypothesis, Ltd. In addition to their graphic design practice, Anne designs textiles, jewelry, and ceramics.
Anne's research explores the intersection of analog and digital methods, and the potential for materials to both form and inform design. She believes that by combining hand- and computer-based methods, designers can work beyond the constraints of the computer, taking advantage of the aesthetic effects that actual materials bring to visual communication. Her process stems from a fascination with integrating type and image, an appreciation for materials and technology, and the desire to make type come alive in her hands.
