Hello, I'm Jessie! 

I'm a strategically minded designer passionate about Service Design, Creative Direction and User Research.

My background in branding and marketing, combined with my passion for user-centric design, allows me to create compelling visual identities and campaigns that connect with audiences and meet their needs efficiently. I live at the intersection of marketing and user experience, and thrive in understanding how to take users on a complete journey from discovery to adoption and success.

I've worked directly with brands such as Google, Amazon, Qualcomm, McLaren, National Geographic, Petersen Automotive Museum, Goodwood and Salon Privé London.
