Assistant Professor of Practice, Design
Wilkins attended the MFA Design program at The University of Texas at Austin, but withdrew early to put his theoretical studies in to practice. He found his fit at Dyal and Partners, the design studio he joined in 2012, which subsequently became part of Page. Wilkins played a key role in the recent redesign of the University of Texas at Austin's visual identity. He enjoyed working on it because it was first and foremost a strategic effort. “The solution for this project was the result of solving very specific problems, with very specific constraints. It was a true collaboration between designers in the studio, the client, and various key stakeholders."
Jason's passion for design spills over into his personal life as well. He has been a guest speaker at his undergraduate alma mater, the University of Arkansas, and is also a curatorial board member for the Pecha Kucha Austin chapter, an international movement that facilitates opportunities for creative individuals to meet, show their work, and exchange ideas.
A favorite quote of his by the late Massimo Vignelli summarizes Jason’s approach to design: "If you can design one thing, you can design anything."
