Who is Jess? I’m a passionate, curious graphic designer, specializing in branding, identity, digital design, social media and creative direction. I graduated from Syracuse University with a B.F.A. in Visual Communications – Illustration and a concentration in Art History. After four cold, glorious years upstate, I returned home to NYC, where the temperature generally stays above zero and there’s now our very own outpost of Dinosaur BBQ. In 2007, I took my talents to ESPN and always wear orange to work on game day.
I’m passionate about art, travel, food, music and sports. Oh, and creating great work that delivers results for my clients. When I’m not creating work for awesome brands in the worlds of sports, art and fashion, I can be found eating, gallery hopping, hunting street art, exploring new cultures and finding inspiration by indulging my insatiable wanderlust around the globe.
Always hungry and always curious.
