MODA Presents: Twitter’s New Global Group Creative Director for Design Conversation

ATLANTA – October 20, 2016 – Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) welcomes Jayanta Jenkins, Twitter’s newly appointed global group creative director for an engaging Design Conversation on Thursday, October 27. A graduate of Atlanta's Portfolio Center, Jenkins believes that iconic brands have a tendency to inform culture rather than mirror it. And he should know.

In order to oversee Twitter's creative team, Jenkins left his position as global director of advertising at Apple/Beats by Dr. Dre. He has also led the creation of culture-changing work at other world-class agencies and brands, including TBWA\Chiat\Day, Wieden + Kennedy, Gatorade, and Nike. See Jenkins’ Apple/Beats by Dr. Dre 2015 video featuring Serena Williams here.
