Terese Jungle received her M.F.A. in Visual Communications from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Currently an Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at La Roche College, she enjoys sharing decades of experience in graphic design—specializing in brand design and development—with a dynamic, engaged student body.
As a brand consultant and designer, she has helped clients with logo and brand standards design, art direction, and writing/editing for a wide variety of small to mid-sized businesses as well as personalities, education, entrepreneurs, and corporations. Her most recent projects include a brand revitalization project—from logo re-design to web strategy, print collateral to final graphic standards for an award-winning Pittsburgh floral event design company; and branding a vegetarian restaurant in Denver, CO.
She is passionate about the narrative capacity of brands and is, in her own right, a storyteller—with her first children’s book, Chicken: A Comic Cat Memoir published in 2016. The book won a 2017 Bronze in the Moonbeam Children's Book Awards, plus double Gold for Best Children’s Nonfiction and Best Pet Nonfiction in the 2016 Global E-book Awards.
Her side projects design merchandising—with art products available in boutique and museum shops such as The Mattress Factory Museum and local maker markets—singing with her artist daughter in The Smallest Show in Town, and as part of a yet-to-be-named folk/spirituals trio.
