Jacqueline Gu is a graphic designer who believes that design has a social responsibility to do good, give back to its community, and make an impact. Her most recent contributions include leading a mentorship group for AIGA Chicago, participating in Greater Good Studio’s project, “Designing Chicago,” an improved transit app for the city of Chicago, and working as a collaborator with Made by We, a for-benefit design studio based in Washington, DC.
She has been lucky enough to work with a diverse range of clients including HBO, Namco Bandai, Lego, and Feeding America. She holds a BFA from the University of Michigan, and is currently at 270 Strategies as a senior designer working on various nonprofits, grassroot organizations, and political campaigns.
When she isn’t designing, Jacqueline enjoys getting her hands dirty screen printing and metalsmithing, indulging in bad reality TV shows, and biking along Chicago’s beautiful Lakeshore Trail.
