As our Visioning specialist, Jan’s artistic touch is evident in everything that PLACE Alliance produces. From managing our social media presence and web content to preparing our marketing collateral and portfolio to participating in the visioning and design of projects, Jan has been helping us tell our story since 2009. She cherishes collaboration and is at her happiest in the midst of a good brainstorming session. Her boundless energy and creative flair provides a spark of imagination and invention that infuses every aspect of our work. As a die-hard New Urbanist, she understands the relationship and role that architecture and planning play in the creation of great places. As a result, Jan is always looking for the soul in a project, taking what may seem like cold statistics or dull informational drawings and bringing them to life in inspired ways. Through her graphic design, photography, books, artwork and presentations, Jan expresses the potential emotions and the types of human experiences that are fundamental to the places we strive to design. Her work helps us to capture the aura and ambiance of each new project and it is with her input that PLACE Alliance is able to convey how the power of superior design lies at the very heart of what it feels like to be in, and live in, a truly great place.
