J A Y D A V A N I
I'm a generalist rather than a specialist, versatile and adept at many things.
From coordinating large scale weddings, fundraisers, institutional
events to branding small businesses, building websites and
creating social media content, I've been working in the design,
photography and events fields for over a decade.
At Brown University I managed alumni, stewardship and
academic events + also designed print, web and electronic materials.
For the past few years, I've cultivated a design studio
that focuses on branding, design, web production, digital strategy
and consulting in person and online for small businesses.
Currently, I manage creative projects and operations
for the communications department
at the Rhode Island School of Design.
And when I’m not in the office, you can find me
sourcing antiques for my resale business MINT.
I received an Associate of Arts from Oxford College in 2001
and a Bachelors of Arts from Emory University in 2003.
I hold certifications in Graphic Design and Photography
from Rhode Island School of Design, and
Digital Strategy from Providence College School of Business.
