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 technology 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.
In 2001, I left the security of a full-time senior staff position for the unpredictable challenges and exciting opportunities of freelancing. In 2010, I created Jessamine Design. My client roster – an inspiring group of collaborators – includes nonprofit organizations, musicians, artists, film studios, and local businesses. As always, I continue to pursue freelance opportunities, and seek collaborations with established brands, artists and entrepreneurs.
In addition to Jessamine Design, I am now pursuing commercial photography opportunities. I am both thrilled and a bit intimidated by this new (albeit inevitable), creative chapter in my career — ever onward!
