I am a freelance art director and graphics and motion designer, living in Los Angeles, California. I have a gift for keen insight, and exceptional taste and ability for design. I've won awards. I'm a winner.
I began my career in advertising at Ogilvy & Mather in Los Angeles, creating print and television advertising for hi-tech and telecommunications brands that included Microsoft, IBM, GTE Wireless and PacBell Mobile Services. My career spans over twenty years and my experience has grown to include banking and financial services, healthcare, travel, hospitality, automotive, sporting goods, entertainment and publishing brands. I know a little about a lot of subjects. I kill at cocktail parties.
In 2001, I left the security of a full-time senior staff position for the exciting and unpredictable life of freelancing. That road eventually led me back to my roots as a graphic designer. In 2009, I created Jessamine Art + Design. My client roster – an inspiring group of collaborators – includes non-profit agencies, musicians, artists, film studios, and local businesses. As always, I continue to pursue freelance opportunities and seek connections that grow my client roster.
In addition to Jessamine Art + Design, I am now pursuing commercial photography opportunities. It is an old passion whose embers have been reignited. I am both thrilled and a bit intimidated by this new, albeit inevitable, creative chapter in my career — ever onward!
