Party Designer

Graphic Design

Hello! Hola! I'm Marilyn from Jazzy’s Design, JCD.  I am Yaqui-Mexican-American artist raised with traditional art and culture values. My artwork is influenced by my indigenous heritage, that has been passed down from my mother and grandmother. I am working towards a more diversity and equitable initiative learning, Masters in Communication at Portland State University.

My creations are under Jazzy’s Creation & Design, where I use my art and graphic design skills to create educational resources and eco-friendly recyclable crafts for kids. I am a trained graphic designer from Portland, Oregon. I have several years of experience working with non-profit organizations and programs around the Pacific Northwest as an artist, designer, and educator.


Now: I have been working with my community as an Art Teacher for the last couple of years where I can pass on my cultural traditions to my children (in the classroom and out) through art techniques. You can find me creating instructional art resources to communicate and educate the community.

Past: I have 10+ years experience in graphic design and project coordination. I began in Weiden + Kennedy's non-profit organization, where I worked with the co-founder of W&K and the Media Production Manager. I have worked for many non-profit organizations and programs: Oregon Health Sciences University, American Indian Teacher’s Program (co-sponsored by PSU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and Graduate School of Education), Oregon Department of Education’s grant for Culturally Responsive Elementary Mathematics, Native American Rehabilitation Association’s Healing Feather program, and several projects funded by Native American tribal governments (local and regional).


What I do for fun? I enjoy styling parties and making handmade things for family and friends which keeps me occupied at nights through blogging about my DIY projects on  I'm also a scrapbooker and anything that has to do with capturing a beautiful moment, photography. I Enjoy the outdoors, hanging out with my little girl & dog, and crafting with friends.   Follow my journey on social media, instagram @Jazzysdesign
