Welcome

Hello there.

My name is Jean Railla.  I am a writer, filmmaker, and educator.  A pioneer of online storytelling, I created the popular modern crafting site Get Crafty, and then helped start etsy. As a copywriter and creative director, I continued to craft digital tools and advertising at R/GA while working on campaigns for NIKE, Walmart and Johnson & Johnson.  Most recently I consulted with the luxury brand La Mer on their social media creative.   I am currently a part-time professor in the Department of Media, Culture and Communications at NYU Steinhardt and in production on a documentary series about the indie rock revolution. I am a terrible copy editor.  (Apologies in advance to all my type-A readers.)  Email me at jar303(AT)nyu.edu.

Things I am thinking about:

The Role of Ambiguity in Creative Thinking

Feminism and Branding

Design Thinking

Art as Therapy
