Stanley Tigerman called him “a Renaissance man.” Justin Henderson described him as “visionary, idiosyncratic and utterly original”, “a poet, an artist and a maker of magic” and “a springboard into the realm of architecture as art.”
Sleeper Magazine referred to him as “one of the hotel industry’s most innovative and provocative designers.”
Bob Puccini said Jordan is “the thinking man’s designer.”
In Crain’s Chicago Business, Barbara Bucholtz dubbed him “Chicago’s other Jordan.”
Jordan Mozer is the founder, co-owner and principal of Jordan Mozer & Associates, Limited (JMA). Prior to earning a degree in architecture, Jordan studied painting, sculpture, english literature, fashion design and product design, all of which inform his work on a daily basis. He is as attentive to the details of every client’s business plan as he is to the look of each logo he designs and the craftsmanship of each door pull he carves by hand.
Since founding JMA in 1984, Jordan and his namesake firm have built an international reputation for consistently original, successful and newsworthy designs for clients as varied as Disney, Marriott, Volkswagen, Universal Studios, Asprey & Garrard, Steve Wynn, Lettuce Entertain You, Barney’s New York and The Rolling Stones (to name just a few). For more than twenty five years, his work has been included in books, magazines, newspapers, internet articles, museum and gallery exhibitions and both public and private collections.
Jordan has taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the University of Illinois Chicago and the University of Illinois Champaign, sat on numerous design juries and panels and continues to guest teach, and to lecture extensively throughout the United States and in Europe.
