Eventbrite - sketchXchange with Dan Stiles

Beginning her design path in 2006, and then heading out on her own in 2009, Jessica’s career propelled as she landed jobs with clients like Wes Anderson, Penguin Books, and Google. 

She’s been named one of Print Magazine’s New Visual Artists, an ADC Young Gun, and one of Forbes 30 under 30 in Art and Design two years in a row.   

Her style—warm, friendly, playful and sophisticated is all her own. It crosses many platforms from editorial design, advertising, product design, book design, identity, and even temporary tattoos! 

One of the things I find inspiring about Jessica is her ability to share. Whether it’s a talk, as a judge in a portfolio review, offering a workshop, or thoughtful posts on her own site where she writes about getting paid, process, and other tangents. Some might say she’s an over sharer but I can respect the transparency.

”I think putting myself out there has helped clients feel like they know me before they make first contact, and maybe made them more likely to contact me over someone with similar work but less transparent of a personality. It’s also been wonderful to meet strangers that feel like they know me already. I can ask them questions about them and not have to go through the whole “so what do you do” robotic introduction that happens at design events. I feel like old friends with people instantly and strangers write me as if we’ve known each other our whole lives.”

We are really looking forward to having her share her thoughts on design and her process and hope you will join us too. Space will be limited so be sure to sign up early!
