Hey there! 
My name is Jodi Kolpakov.
I'm a St. Louis-based visual communicator, educator, and foodie. Much of my work blends design and illustration together, using them together as powerful tools for visual communication.
Aside from teaching, my freelance work (as JK! Create Art + Design) focuses primarily on helping the small people build their businesses/brands, specifically in food + beverage and wedding industries. Specializing in branding, packaging, and editorial, my portfolio is explorative to stay fresh and accommodate the goals of my clients. 
My personal, more creative work is inspired by personal narratives, particularly focusing on rural Midwest culture. Through an evolving and exaggerated aesthetic, I often use strange color palettes and dark humor to talk about personal connections and the effects of these societies at large. I have had my work recognized by AIGA St. Louis, 3x3 Magazine, ICON, and Communication Arts.
Outside of art, you might catch me singing at karaoke, hitting up the antique malls, or attempting to improve my Russian (still terrible at it, tbh). Connect with me on Instagram at @sloppyjodi for zine trades and more!
