Graphic Designer/Illustrator

Jess Matthews Design
January, 2011 – November, 2014 (almost 4 years)

I believe great design is created to last. Although the world around me is always inspirational, I believe in a solid design concept which is based on thorough research and thoughtful idea generation.

I work to a high standard because I absolutely love what I do. I have a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude. As a freelance graphic designer I can work alongside you and assist you with your publishing needs. I have a passion for hand-lettering bespoke typography, and would be happy to discuss the possibilities this could add to your project.
