Jacob Waites

I design, prototype, and build brands and interactions full of expressive type, fun motion, bold colors, and minimal line-work. Sometimes I write and speak about design. My craft is the way I speak to the world, I work to help others find their voice and make them successful.

Beyond Differences

Bringing Surgeon General youth mental health advisory content into schools during an unprecedented time in modern american history.

Beyond differences, an organization set on a mission to inspire students nationwide to end social isolation and create cultures of belonging for everyone, partnered with the U.S. Office of the Surgeon General to bring a spotlight onto youth mental health in middle schools around the nation.

As part of this collaboration, I designed a printed poster sent out to 1500 schools across America with prompts and reflections for students to reflect and imagine a future they want to live in, and reflect with each other on how to process their feelings during the global pandemic.
