About

Greetings,

My name is Jordan Sparks, a Canadian Multimedia Artist & Designer based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I am a graduate of Ryerson University with a Master of Arts in Media Production and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in New Media. I use videos, illustrations, video games, and interactive technologies to explore how media experiences can entertain and inspire social change.

I have many years of experience in graphic design, illustration, photography, and image manipulation and am the creator of Spark Comics. For over a decade, I have developed countless videos in many genres, including animation, mini-documentary, music videos, voice over dubs, and more. I have also developed various innovative interactive projects and am well known for my research on ‘games for social change’. Several of my interactive works have been exhibited at gallery events across Toronto, including the META 2014, the Level Up Showcase, and the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, and featured by news outlets such as the Torontoist, Toronto Star, and CityNews. I am also dedicated to developing educational content, with a solid history of organizing and developing award-winning educational programs, events, and workshops, in addition to mentoring and assisting for other organizations. I’ve developed or contributed to educational programming at places such as Ryerson University, Ladies Learning Code, Sheridan College, and the Hand-Eye Society. I currently work as a Makerspace Technician at the Royal Ontario Museum and a Maker Educator at STEAMLabs.
