About.

INSPIRED BY SIMPLICITY.

Hi! My name is Jessica Johannesen and I am a graphic designer and internet marketing geek. I am passionate about designs that connect to your audience & help you reach your goals.

I have over five years of freelance experience. If you’re looking for someone with a lot of knowledge and excitement, who will listen to what you want then you’ve come to the right place.

  • I would say that I am fluent in the languages of HTML and CSS. I have started to learn PHP because I’m always interested in learning as much as possible.
  • I have a 4-year degree in graphic design but I have learned more since graduating than I ever did in college. I have been self-employed for eight years and have the ambition and dedication that comes with such a background, as well as being able to find joy in my work.
  • My goal is to create brands and illustrations that readily and easily communicate with your customer base. Customer interaction goes hand in hand with successful products. Ideally, every project I ever work on will be engaging and long lasting in its influence.
  • My main goal in my creative process is communicating ideas in a friendly and easy to relate way.
  • I want to bring my vision to help you reach your goals. I’ll work with you closely during the process to make sure your goals and wishes are met.
  • Currently, I live in York, Pennsylvania, so I’m close to the mountains and ocean, but my biggest hobby is gardening. I also live with my two sisters, husband, daughter and five cats, and I love them all a lot.
  • I also fill my free time with reading, knitting, photography, and working with my husband on his business Porter & Hazel.
  • I am incredibly easy to work with and friendly, so please contact me with any questions you have!

VERSITILITY IS THE NEW BLACK.

Thinking outside the box only happens when you blur the edges of your profession. Dabbling in adjacent fields deepens your understanding and enriches your work. Doing so many different things that you no longer know what to call yourself is a good thing. Yes, we should focus but not so much we don’t see the world around us.
01.COMMUNICATION.

I believe in questions. During our initial planning phase, I ask lots of questions about your goals, your competition, how you want your piece to feel and what you want it to accomplish. Everyone wants good results quickly. While all good design takes time, communicating and having clearly defined goals is the number one way to ensure you get results you want the first time.

02. DESIGN PROCESS.

After an initial conversation where we lay out the project goals and requirements I go to my studio and create concept sketches.  Concept sketches are a designer’s rough draft. I’ll send you a few ideas and then we’ll chat about which one you like the best and how to perfect the design before completing the final piece.

03. MARKETING.

I believe creating great content is the best way to market your business. If you produce quality content (articles, newsletters, videos, and images) your customers will spread the word about you on social media. Having a successful business means spending as much effort marketing as you do on your core product.
