LELA JENKINS

creative GRAPHIC DESIGNER & PHOTOGRAPHER

UChicago '20  •  Art History, Media Arts & Design

When I first got to UChicago, I often found myself wishing for a place where I and other UChicago graphic designers could find each other, meet up, talk about what we love and how we could use it in a career. Because of this, I took it upon myself to be a leader in the graphic design community through my involvement with student-run organizations. 

 

As a graphic designer, I am dedicated to an education and self-development in digital arts and web design, but also in helping other RSOs find their own unique and effective brand identity. I am constantly helping organizations arrive at a new look and a new brand strategy, and take great pride in working with both on-campus and community clients through RSOs such as MODA and The Mark. They might be looking for a new logo, but with my help I allow a whole new, reinvented image come to life.

 

Having such an extensive involvement with the surrounding graphic artist community, I have enjoyed elevating the look and feel of the UChicago community aesthetic. I hope to play a part in unifying the campus as thriving in unique interests beyond academia, further promoting club involvement as well as my relationship to the Hyde Park community. Through my engagement with UChicago arts, I hope to chisel away that hard, cold, reputation of where fun comes to die, instead replacing it with an image of warmth and eccentricity, where a diverse range of students can find their place and call it home.
