Corey Jones is an Associate Professor in Industrial Design, and has been teaching at California College of the Arts since 2009 across the Industrial Design, Furniture Design, Glass and MFA Design programs.  He has served as the Assistant Chair of Industrial Design since 2015

  With an extensive background in fabrication and media processes, Corey is a multidisciplinary designer and brings the ethos of “always make” to the courses that he teaches.


  Corey’s own work is heavily focused with objects of modestly functional uses.  Of particular interest has always been vessel forms, specifically with drink-ware.  These Objects of Subtle Intimacy, provide a rich area of investigation, and a recurring place to explore form, sensitivity and contact with the body. “Drinking glasses provide a unique experience and relationship that we do not share with most of the objects that we surround ourselves with.  How many things that we touch throughout our lives, do we actually put in our mouths?  It is an unusual, wonderful and often overlooked relationship we have with these tools we use for nourishment and pleasure.”  


  Outside of the college Corey is a freelance industrial designer working on product design, identity development and brand strategy.  These professional works involve projects and installations displayed around the world, featured in ID Magazine, have won the Chicago Athenaeum Good Design Award, and are part of the permanent collection at the SF MOMA.  He has been involved with the creation of many public exhibits including the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial, and the Ice Falls in Norman Foster’s Hearst Tower in New York.  Past clients include Sony, American Eagle Outfitters, Lexus, Spoon Rocket, LifeFactory and more.
