The Friday Fives: Going for the Gold with Bailey Reinhart

January 26, 2018

Bailey Reinhart

Bailey Reinhart

Welcome back to the Friday Fives! For our second installment, we're happy places and gold medal dreams with University of Cincinnati communication design co-op, Bailey Reinhart. 

Favorite entertainment experience...

...The Happiest Place on Earth— Disney World! I have been to Disney World about 12 times so far; the main reason that I like it so much is because of the variety and the enormity of it. From Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, etc. there’s a ton of unforgettable experiences.

The part of my career I enjoy the most is …

...Being able to collaborate with others and create designs that are used in the real world. Also being able to do something that I am passionate about everyday.

Best stress buster...

...Being with friends and traveling, nothing de-stresses me more than a new adventure or experience.

In my spare time, I…

Most of my spare time is spent working on freelance design projects. I create award designs and promotional materials for Hawkes Crystal USA, a brilliant-cutting establishment located in Tiffin, Ohio. I also work on design materials for a small boutique in Tiffin; creating graphic tee designs as well as instructing painting classes whenever I have the time for it.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Growing up I always wanted to be an art teacher or an architect. I always knew that I wanted to have a career in the creative field but wasn’t sure of all the possibilities.

What are your dream design projects?

I have a a few…

  • - To brand an athletic team, direct the design of the stadium, uniforms, merchandise, etc.
  • - To help develop an Olympic logo and create the brand
  • - Work on a way to make the healthcare system better and more user friendly

We look forward to working with Corie and Bailey to help develop their skills, stoke their design passions, and bring them one step closer to their professional dreams. To learn more about Bailey, visit her design website at www.baileymreinhart.com.

The Friday Fives: In the Studio and Under the Sea with Corie Flood

January 19, 2018

Corie Flood

Corie Flood

Happy 2018! A new year at JRA can only mean one thing - a new group of stellar co-ops from the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning! Over the next two weeks, will ask five rapid-fire questions of our newest team members. First up - industrial design co-op Corie Flood, who's living her childhood dream...almost.

The part of my career I enjoy the most is…
Being able to create things and then seeing those creations come to life.

Best advice I’ve ever gotten…
Work hard and be kind.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
It ranged from everything to mermaid to architect. Luckily industrial design isn’t too far from architect.

In my spare time…
I really enjoy reading, traveling, playing volleyball, and spending time with family and friends.

Best stress buster…
A good workout. I always leave feeling better.

Thanks, Corie! Stay tuned next week for our second installment, where we talk travel, sports and Disney with graphics co-op, Bailey Reinhart.

 What differentiates a fad from a trend? How are VR, AR, AI, and IP transforming the experential design landscape? 

JRA Vice President Shawn McCoy answered these questions and more as part of his "Emerging Trends in Immersive Design" presentation at the 2017 International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo. For the seventh consecutive year, Shawn offered a fast-paced, full-of-cool-things presentation featuring the latest standout experiences in the attractions and leisure industries. But this year, he also shared the technologies, techniques and traits that comprise trends and give them lasting value.

Didn't make it to IAAPA this year, or want to catch Shawn's presentation again? Enjoy the video below and/or email Clara Rice at crice@jackrouse.com for a transcript. Thanks for watching!

Fresh Faces Friday: Getting to Know Elizabeth Hancock

November 24, 2017

Elizabeth Hancock

Elizabeth Hancock

 For the last of our Fresh Faces Friday posts (for now!), we're profiling the truly "new" member of our team, Elizabeth Hancock. 

Elizabeth's 20 years of project management experience, coupled with her planning, design, and leadership skills, make her an exciting addition to the JRA team. Her fields of competence include design, space planning, architectural drawing and detailing, and code research. She currently assists in budget, schedule, and communication management for Lionsgate Movie World.

Prior to joining JRA, Elizabeth was a Senior Project Manager for FRCH Design Worldwide and a Standards Manager for Luxxotica Retail, North America. In those roles, she provided planning, construction documentation, and design and standards implementation for such corporate and retail clients as Macy’s, Lenscrafters, Pearl Vision, Sunglass Hut, Zales, Jared, Kay Jewelers, and Capital One. She has a Bachelor of Interior Design from Mt. St. Joseph University as well as a Web Design Specialist Certificate. 

Want to find Elizabeth on the weekends? She'll most likely be camping, taking a nature walk, remodeling her home, or busy with one of her many crafting projects. 

We're thrilled that Elizabeth has joined our industry, and we look forward to introducing you in person to all of our five fresh faces!
