Hi! I'm Jakob Plotts and I am a UI/UX designer, web/app developer, graphic designer and all around artist.
I have always known I wanted to be an artist since the day I first picked up a pencil and started drawing. Since then it's always been my goal to be able to design like the best of them. To this day, I persist on improving myself so that I might continue to inspire like the best of them.
I am a designer based in the United States and I do a little bit of everything, but most of my work consists of IM/UX design and realistic/abstract digital art. I have produced work for many local communities throughout central Illinois and my work has been displayed in various exhibitions such as the 2015 Illinois Community College Juried Exhibition, at Governors State University IL. Currently, I am working to obtain my Bachelors degree in Interactive Media design (with a focus on UI/UX design) while leading many relevant projects and volunteer work along the way. I hope to further my education and career in the arts and in science in order to make an impact on the visual and interactive world that really makes a difference.
I designed the current logo for the UI/UX Club at Bradley University. It was completed during the Fall school semester of 2017. The branding was done in Adobe Illustrator along with a rigorous testing process to ensure its effectiveness.
I created various art assets including concept art for a game in the works with a team at Bradley University's Game Design Club. This piece was created during the planning phase of the game during the Fall semester of 2017. The content helps the project gain more clarity by illustrating the environment and mood as well as the intelligent electronic eye that is the main character.
I developed an application that would generate a sequence of language-like symbols. It was created as a personal project during my Fall semester in 2017 at Bradley University in response to an interest in learning newly introduced programming software known as Processing. It works by generating symbols through a custom algorithm for side by side frames. When they are aligned in a grid, they appear to be some kind of alien language. The purpose of this project was to illustrate how uniformity through things like grids can cause us to see meaning that isn't really there.
