Jenny Tondera, Art Director at Spring Studios NY, has quite a bit under her belt: she’s designed at MCAD DesignWorks, 160over90, and Bloomingdale’s; she’s taught as an adjunct professor at MICA; and she co-runs Parts & Labor Books, a small art book publisher. Jenny’s work really shines in projects where she combines zine sensibilities with a sophisticated restraint.
When trawling Jenny’s work, you get the sense that she relishes collaborations which blur the lines between design and art. Her books, magazines, and album artwork carry a quiet, unmistakable joy.
While Jenny’s printed materials borrow from the low-fi language of zine culture, they feel carefully considered, never overdoing the self-published aesthetic.
