  • Janice Yu Veksler

  • Communication Design (AAS)

    After earning a BA in modern European history at Barnard College, Janice Yu Veksler discovered an interest in graphic design while assisting the art editor at the New Yorker. After four years at the magazine, Veksler decided to get a formal education in graphic design at Parsons. She began her design career as art director of zingmagazine and went on to serve as a senior designer at Visionaire and then as an art director at Teen Vogue.

    Advising

    Veksler served as Web art director at Kate Spade and is currently vice president of digital creative for Esteé Lauder. “My experience in the AAS program was invaluable; I built a strong portfolio, essential to getting my first job. Without AAS, I would not be where I am now,” says Veksler.
