My name is Jovanna (Jo-Vah-Nah). I am an Art Director based in New York City with a background in animation and illustration. I work as an Editorial Art Director for Medium.com, where I use creative strategy to bring clarity and definition to editorial projects.

Other roles include broadcast designer and staff animator for Daily Show with Trevor Noah, producing on-air graphics for field and studio projects. Originally from the best coast, I began my career as the staff animator for season 5 of Dan Harmon’s “Community” on NBC.
