About me

Hi, I'm Jess! I am a London based Graphic Design graduate, specialised in Design for Publishing. University allowed me to explore and develop a creative practice focused around my interests in editorial design, photography, print and creative direction. My bachelor’s degree, previous freelancing experience, commissions and personal projects have provided me with a great foundation in design with an in-depth knowledge of several Adobe Creative Suite software and a multidisciplinary collection of design work. Please check out my projects which showcase my recent works! Feel free to message me for collaborations, work or just for a chat between creatives!

    • Freelance
    • Since graduating from Norwich University in June, I have freelanced for a number of different clients and projects locally. Most recently I was briefed to design a 30 year anniversary of business advert to feature in the Leigh Times Newspaper. The project required me to take a typographic and illustrative approach which I created using the Adobe Creative Suite. The freelancing opportunities I have has vary from editorial layouts and book publishing for an annual university exhibition, Birthday invites, newspaper adverts and Self - Employed branding. Please feel free to contact me regarding my work or any up-coming projects you may have for me !
