Jess started with Sharkey Advertising almost 7 years ago as a designer. She recently has taken on a new role as Art Director where she supervises and unifies the creative vision of all print and digital projects, making sure the final product communicates visually. The agency counts on Jess to oversee the creative output of the agency. “I love the challenge of managing multiple projects at any one time and working with the writers, artists and developers to meet deadlines – and exceed client expectations.” “Inspiration is all around us, all of the time. For me, walking through Manhattan is the most inspiring. Taking pictures, looking, listening, observing and getting lost in the city bring out some of my best ideas.” Says Jessica. “While I’m not art directing, I still love designing logos. The thought of creating something that sets the whole brand excites me.”
Before working at Sharkey, Jess graduated from the School of Visual Arts in NYC where she received a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. Post graduation, Jess was a marketing designer for Family Circle Magazine at Meredith Corporation. Jess loves photography, traveling, green tea lemonades from Starbucks, and chasing after her sweet and rambunctious little boy, Jack.
