Jody Thomas

Jody is the Director of Visual Design at EightShapes, designing visually compelling experiences that achieve business objectives while delighting users. Jody has designed interactive experiences for use across multiple media: online, software, mobile, tablet, large touch screens and print. Each medium offers distinct challenges but Jody enjoys exploring the nuances of each canvas.

During her career she led teams and large scale redesigns at AOL working on their desktop software, portal and destination websites and most recently their mobile applications. Prior to AOL she created multiple custom fan sites for Discovery Channel and TLC’s shows and hosts.

Jody is strongly influenced the bold, graphic styles of the International Style of design but also loves the chaos of David Carson and David Lachappelle. Jody’s favorite typeface is DIN Engschrift but has a soft spot for Emigre’s Mrs. Eaves when a serif is needed.
