Volunteer of the Month: Jody Worthington

Jody Worthington is a graphic designer, a hula hooper, a metal DJ, and a friend to cats. She began volunteering with 826 Valencia in 2008, creating event posters, laying out the Bay-Farer, Straight-Up News, and chapbooks. Jody’s favorite project with 826 has been working with Maria to design the Young Authors’ Book Project for the past four years.

She feels lucky and honored to have collaborated with some amazing designers and illustrators, to work with the incredible 826 family, and to see the look of elation on students’ faces as they see their work professionally designed and published for the first time. Jody launched her one-woman design studio in January 2013, and loves nothing more than to work with clients on branding and print design, coffee in hand and cat in lap.
