My name is Jen Magathan, and I am a Graphic Designer who strives to develop formal expressions through showing the structure and development of the design process. Most of my work has been created by focusing on developing design in the area between the application of systematic graphic elements and chance operation. Through this study I have found a way of working which oscillates on a spectrum between two points. This synthesis drives my practice and feeds my impulse to organize and interpret information.
I continue this practice and way of thinking by producing design in the areas of print, identity, web and exhibit design. Please use this site as a place to learn about my ideas and methods, with respect to Graphic Design.
Currently, I am a Senior Art Director at BEAM Interactive & Relationship Marketing, in Boston, MA, as well as an Adjunct Professor of Design at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. I have also taught, lectured, and been a guest critic at various colleges, universities, and high school programs including the Rhode Island School of Design, the University of Connecticut, Michigan State University, MIT, Northeastern University, Lasell College and the Youth Design Program.
