About Hoboken Pudding

Oozing from an old pudding and pie-filling factory in northern NJ, Hoboken Pudding is the visual thinking blog of artist, designer and educator Jay Boucher.


I'm an illustrator and interactive designer specializing in creating entertaining games and websites. I strive to create work that is both delightful to see and intuitive to use, a combination of visual fun and UI best practices.

I currently work as a graphic designer for Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ. I also create games and animations for the foundation of renowned illustrator Ezra Jack Keats. I spent much of the 2000′s as Senior Designer for MTV.com, designing sites for shows like Pimp My Ride and The Real World, as well as cable channels MTV2 and MTV Tr3s. I’ve worked with Hearst Digital, Condé Nast and Westwood One Radio Network.

I have a BFA in Illustration from Virginia Commonwealth University and a MFA in Photography & Related Media from School of Visual Arts in NYC. I draw from life every chance I get and combine observational drawing with digital manipulation to create my artwork. I recently developed a game design curriculum for children in northern NJ and presented my student’s work at TEDx Jersey City. I can often be found long boarding on the streets of Hoboken and Jersey City, NJ.
