JIM FORD is an American visual artist and designer from Chicago. As a student, Jim got his start working for a small, but prolific point-of-purchase agency. He then went on to study advertising art direction and then graphic design at Columbia College Chicago, until 2005. He has designed custom typefaces for corporations, publishers, software and hardware manufacturers, video games and devices. After becoming senior type designer at Ascender, Jim parted to start his own art & design company, Rebeletter Studios in 2010. More recently his focus has shifted to fine art, producing a plethora of wildly challenging collage works and mixed media pieces.
