  • Jason Booher

  • Communication Design (AAS)

    Born in Germany, Jason Booher graduated from Princeton with a BA in English and a teaching certificate. But teaching wasn’t the right career for him, he discovered. After stumbling upon some design journals, Booher realized he could pursue his interest in storytelling, drawing, and problem solving as a graphic designer.
    Advising

    He entered the AAS Graphic Design program with little knowledge of type or composition but now creates award-winning dynamic and innovative book covers for Knopf and teaches at Parsons. He is currently art director at Blue Rider Press, an imprint of Penguin Books. Booher’s work is featured in Slate Magazine, the New Yorker, It’s Nice That, and the blogs of the Type Directors Club and other organizations. Of his time at Parsons, Booher says, “Incredible instructors and peers gave me an intense grounding in design principles. The program guided me into a new world without coddling me.”
