Meet Jess

Hi friends! I’m Jess, the graphic designer behind Jess Creates. Over the past nine years, I’ve designed event stationery and brand identities for clients up and down the East Coast, all the way to Seattle, and even around the globe as far as London and Mexico.

Thinking back to when I was little, I can remember the day I joined the art club in the fifth grade. Despite the fact that it wasn’t something the cool kids did, I remember the rush I would feel each time I entered the art room. The paint, colored pencils, all the different paper (!!), I just loved it all. I fell madly in love with the art of design while studying at Shepherd University and subsequently received my degree in Fine Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design. College is where I became obsessed with thoughtful typography and clean design, and I’m still head over heels for all things paper and ink.

Today, I have the pleasure and honor of owning a business that serves those passions. I work with the most amazing business owners and creative entrepreneurs as we strive to build strong, genuine brands. I also have the joy of designing event stationery for so many brides, mothers, and maid of honors – many of whom I’ve made lasting friendships with!  I have such a love for planning events, so whether you’re having a vineyard wedding or princess themed birthday party, chances are I’ll be just as excited for your event as you are!

I have a weakness for anything mint or teal, wake up before dawn on most days, and love a good run in the morning. My closest friends know that dinner parties or a cup of coffee are the way to my heart and I love spending time with my husband and our miniature dachshund, Lucky.

Jess Creates has been featured on Style Me Pretty, Southern Living Weddings, Grey Likes Weddings, Ruffled, Glamor and Grace, Bump Smitten, WV Weddings, Gold Country Weddings, Estate Weddings, and more!

I would love to meet you! Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re interested in working together.
