Jordan Rosenblum works as an artist, designer, and educator. He employs non-traditional research and social engagement strategies to explore possibilities for fostering community connection and resilience as we move out of the era of the Anthropocene.
Jordan has held positions as a book designer, creative director for a tech start-up, and independent content strategist serving clients including HarperCollins, The Tribune Companies, Random House, and numerous non-profits and small businesses. He has worked in small-scale agriculture and as the coordinator for the International Rescue Committee’s New Roots Community Farm in the Bronx. Jordan has facilitated workshops exploring mindfulness and creativity, the relationship between personal ancestry and our shared future, and the impact of personal narrative in group decision making.

Jordan’s work is guided by a deep curiosity with how people communicate through social interaction and collaboration, and how art and design can serve as tools for deepening understandings of ourselves and our world.
