Jill McDonald is becoming nationally recognized as an extremely talented designer with a colorful, whimsical style that's fresh, fun and unique.
Jill graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 1998 with a degree in textile design. She then went on to work for Baby Gap as a print stylist in Gap's Manhattan, NY design headquarters. After two years at Gap Jill made the decision to return to her hometown of Kansas City, Missouri where she joined Hallmark Cards working as an illustrator for three years.
In January 2004 Jill felt the time was right to strike out on her own and founded Jill McDonald Design. Jill specialized in surface design collections and illustrations oriented towards baby and kids. Jill illustrated many children's books, created bedding collections, scrapbooking lines, Christmas collections, stationary collections & wall art.
After a few years of just creating the art for her clients, Jill decided to try her hand at making her own products. With the help of some great companies in the children industry, her dreams have become a reality. Today there are lots of exciting and colorful products under the Jill McDonald Brand.
