Following the recent additions of producer Jana Heiss and East Coast sales rep Jake Neske, HUSH is geared up to announce the signing of New York-based designer, director and illustrator Jodi Terwilliger. With this latest addition, HUSH is acquiring an 11-year industry vet who counts JetBlue, VH1, HSBC and music group RFA as former clients.
"When you have a solid class of talent in place, the list of eligible new candidates shrinks, because whoever you bring in has to be as good as who you already have," noted HUSH Co-Founder/CD David Schwarz. "Jodi, without question, is a talent of that caliber, and one who we are very eager to promote."
In his decade-plus cranking out top-line work across the spectrum, Terwilliger has won featured spots in books, magazines, and online publications, as well as slots at major industry festivals. He has shown his minimalistic and experimental artwork at galleries across North America and Europe, splitting his efforts between client-based work and self-initiated art projects. Terwilliger curates a website dedicated to minimalistic art and traditional graphic design called This Is Public Trust, runs a site for self-created experimental work called Some Things Are Black - Some Things Are White, and is a frequent contributor/editor for Ventilate.ca.
"In Jodi, you have an individual who complements his production talents with a broad swath of experience and interests," stated Erik Karasyk, HUSH co-founder. "This makes for more interesting and entertaining work, which inspires further creativity and innovation in the rest of our staff."
Terwilliger has spent time creating skateboard graphics, video art, and directing under the pseudonym Stefano Dembro. He has also freelanced, co-owned a company called Hired Goons, spent time at Eyeball New York, and worked as a designer at The Diecks Group.
