Icon & Interface Designer
Jessica is fascinated with the world in miniature. As an icon designer, she found inspiration at the Museum of Miniatures in Los Angeles, where she explored a replica of the Palace of Versailles, replete with teeny hand-painted portraits and hand-carved furniture. Further enchanted with a Lilliputian collection of First Ladies in elegant gowns and a pint-sized version of the Titanic she says, “The attention to accurate detail at such a small scale sparks life into each exhibit.” Jessica’s passion for the petite extends to her icon projects, where she makes big ideas pop in small packages.
In addition to illustrating icons, as a graphic designer, Jessica’s professional experience includes Web, software application and video game interface design; typography; and motion graphics for film and video. Some of the most recent projects she’s worked on include PureStorage, 3PAR, and Soonr.
Jessica spins color theory into magic, and prefers adding three-dimensionality to her two-dimensional craft. She aims to create images that delight, surprise and engage audiences, giving her clients the competitive edge.
