Experience & Credibility

“I strive for two things in design: simplicity and clarity.
Great design is born of those two things.”
Lindon Leader

Design • Jessica launched in 2012. After graduating with a BA Hons in Graphic Design, I began a very successful career working in-house at some prestigious publishing and design houses. My experience there honed the skills that I still apply to my clients’ projects today.

I now have over 14 years’ experience as a brand designer, working with companies and charities throughout the UK, Republic of Ireland and Australia to create beautiful new marketing solutions to design needs.

Clarity & Consistency

“A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The strength of a company’s brand lies with consistency. Applying a consistent style to everything that a company produces is key to building its brand. This philosophy comes second nature to me as a designer, and it’s this that I apply to my clients’ work.

I have an exceptional ability to get into your customers’ minds, research what they want to see from you, and apply that clearly and consistently to the marketing that ultimately attracts your dream clients.

Bespoke & Personal

“But I find that for myself, without exception, the more I deal with the work as something that is my own, as something that is personal, the more successful it is.”
Marian Bantjes

Everything that I create is bespoke and specially developed for my clients.

There’s nothing worse than going to a networking event to find a similar company with the same logo or business card as you, purchased from an online company – I’ve seen it happen. This doesn’t happen when you commission a design from Design • Jessica; it’s all created just for you! You’ll get an exceptional one-to-one service directly from me, and absolutely nothing is outsourced to other designers. My most popular package, the No.1 Bespoke Branding package, is limited to 10 exclusive packages a year, meaning that I can focus 100% on each of my client’s needs.

Meet Jess

So, in case we’ve never actually met – HELLO! I am Jess, founder and designer at Design • Jessica. I’ve been a designer for quite a while now.

I’ve always loved anything creative. As a little girl, I was either going to be an artist, a princess, or an England hockey player, so if you couldn’t find me on a hockey pitch, I’d probably be out in the garden painting princesses. Luckily there is an industry that loves this. So in 2006, after my degree in Graphic Design, I became a designer for Disney, nickelodeon, and PIXAR, creating children’s books for an international market.

Fast forward six years of designing for Disney, Transport for London, Marks & Spencer, Caroline Gardner, and many more, and it was time for me to go it alone – Design • Jessica was born.

Since then, I have helped many businesses and charities with their branding, marketing, and publishing needs – applying my exceptional creative touch to create on-brand designs from my studio.

I now live in Ruislip, just outside of London, with my husband Eoin (un-paid studio assistant and RAF pilot) and two cheeky Blue Cross rescue cats Freya and Odin, my rescue hound Emma, and of course, my new son Elliot.

I am also very proud to have founded The Milspo Network CIC and host The InDependent Spouse Podcast. The Network is an online business network for all self-employed UK Armed Forces personnel partners. It provides a space to connect, network, and support, created by a volunteer team building businesses in this modern military world.

I am so lucky to have worked with some astounding entrepreneurs, charities, and companies, and I thank them so much for making Design • Jessica such a success!

What others think…

‘Working with Jess was an invaluable investment in my new business. She is a truly collaborative designer who really took the time to get to know me and my business and made the design process seamless and enjoyable. She is hugely knowledgeable about all things brand design, and I absolutely love what we created together.’
Helen Holt – Styled Home Studios

The Official Bit

Jess is the owner and designer of Design • Jessica.

After graduating with a Graphic Design degree in 2006, Jess was lucky enough to start her dream job at Disney, where one of her most-treasured accolades was designing a Times No.1 best-selling book – Disney’s High School Musical. After six further years of honing her craft and designing for some fantastic companies, such as Transport for London, Disney and Marks & Spencer, Jess launched Design Jessica in 2012. 

Now, taking her passion for branding and the knowledge she gained working for these big corporates to that next level, Jess specialises in styling companies from start to finish, whether they are a new business looking for their first designs or a more established company hoping for a fresh take on their brand and literature – there isn’t anything that Jess can’t do! 

A qualified Graphic Designer and commercially-minded Brand Designer, Jess loves working with inspiring entrepreneurs, taking pride in her passion for bringing clarity and vision to every project she works on, no matter the client. 

As well as creating mind-blowing branding suites for Design Jessica’s clients, Jess is the host of The InDependent Spouse podcast – a weekly series of fun, informative podcasts featuring inspiring guests and content from individuals with a link to the military – and the founder of the Milspo Business Network CIC – a community of entrepreneurs whom all have military connections as military spouses, partners and other halves.

Jess lives just outside of London with her RAF pilot husband Eoin, son Elliot and cheeky rescue animals Emma, Freya and Odin. When she’s not busy designing, you can find her getting bashed on a hockey pitch or taking the (often frosty) plunge by open water swimming in her local lake.

Design Jessica is a top 100 Small Business Saturday Company, the Winner of a Supporting the Unsung Hero Business Award and an award winner at the 2022 Women in Defence Awards. 

Through her work with Milspo, Jess is an #ialso 2019 Top 100 Female Entrepreneur and was named in The Telegraph NatWest 100 Female Entrepreneurs to Watch in 2022.

Design Jessica has also signed the Armed Forces Covenant, pledging its support for the Armed Forces community to receive equality and fair treatment when seeking access to public or private goods and services within the UK.
